Service Limitations

The WISPRENN Internet Services offer a variety of access speeds and service plans. All services are subject to the availability of suitable equipment and facilities and consequently all services are not available at all locations. Final confirmation of service availability for WISPRENN Internet Services high speed services cannot occur until the WISPRENN Internet Services high speed equipment is installed at your premises. If such equipment is installed by a WISPRENN installer, you hereby authorize the installer to disclose to WISPRENN the necessary information to confirm service availability for your premises.It is your responsibility to ensure that your equipment and software meet the current minimum system requirements specified by WISPRENN as being necessary for access to the WISPRENN Internet Services. From time to time, the equipment, Terms of Service, and/or software required to access the WISPRENN Internet Services may change. Accordingly, your equipment and/or software may cease to be adequate to access the WISPRENN Internet Services. In such circumstances, your sole remedy is to terminate your WISPRENN Internet Services account.You are not permitted to operate an e-mail, web, news or other similar server through a WISPRENN Internet Services high speed service, except as specified by Wisprenn. Reverse engineering of the WISPRENN Internet Services high speed service is not permitted. WISPRENN does not guarantee that the WISPRENN Internet Services will operate with all equipment or software, including without limitation all Internet applications and appliances. WISPRENN reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.

Bandwidth Limitations - Fair Access Policy

The Service is for personal and non-commercial residential use only. Therefore, WISPRENN reserves the right to suspend or terminate accounts where data consumption is not characteristic of a typical residential user of the Service as determined by the company in its sole discretion. To provide the best possible experience for the most possible customers, and to minimize capacity issues and degradation in network performance, we manage Unlimited high-speed data usage through prioritization. Unlimited high-speed data customers who use more data than what 80% of customers use in a 24 hour period, based on recent historical averages (updated annually), will have their data usage de-prioritized compared to the data usage of other customers at times and at locations where there are competing customer demands for network resources, which may result in slower data speeds. Industrial plan usage data does not count towards Unlimited high-speed data. Industrial plan customers usage is exempt for this calculation. Based on network statistics for the most recent year, Unlimited high-speed data customers who use more than 80 percent of data of all customers during a single 24 hour period will be de-prioritized for the remainder of that 24 hour period at locations where there are competing customer demands for network resources. At the start of midnight each night the customers usage status is reset, and this data traffic is no longer de-prioritized. Industrial plan users are exempt from this policy.

All usage is subject to the Terms of Service and violation of the Terms of Service will result in suspension or termination of your account. Download usage is subject to the Terms of Service and network capacity. Download and Upload usage must not interfere with other customers ability to use the network. Use of the Service that is considered excessive use is a violation of the Terms of service and Fair Access Policy. Any transfer that is deemed excessive or malicious by WISPRENN will be slowed down or turned off. Wisprenn is not required to give notice before changing, slowing down, or turning off service connections. Common activities that may cause excessive data consumption in violation of this Policy include, but are not limited to, numerous or continuous bulk transfers of files and other high capacity traffic using (i) file transfer protocol (FTP), (ii) peer-to-peer applications, and (iii) newsgroups. You must also ensure that your use of the Service does not restrict, inhibit, interfere with, or degrade any other person's use of the Service, nor represent (as determined by WISPRENN in its sole discretion) an overly large burden on the network. In addition, you must ensure that your use of the Service does not limit or interfere with WISPRENN's ability to deliver and monitor the Service or any part of its network. If you use the Service in violation of the restrictions referenced above, that is a violation of this Policy. In these cases, WISPRENN may, in its sole discretion, suspend, terminate or bill your Service account or request that you subscribe to an advanced version of the Service (such as a commercial grade Internet service, if appropriate) if you wish to continue to use the Service at higher data consumption levels. WISPRENN may also provide versions of the Service with different speed and data consumption limitations, among other characteristics, subject to applicable Service plans. WISPRENN's determination of the data consumption for Service accounts is final. WISPRENN reserves the right to alter speeds in order to maintain fair access to all users without notice. Advertised speeds are up to and are not guaranteed. WISPRENN reserves the right to refuse service. WISPRENN reserves the right to reclaim the receiver in the event of service termination, cancellation, or poor account standing. By using the WISPRENN service you understand that there is no refund for unused service, unused bandwidth or refund due to cancellation for any reason. There are no refunds for installation fees and set-up fees. In the event that WISPRENN is required to give a refund, all refunds will be given in USD cash value at time of original purchase.

DISPUTE RESOLUTION WITH WISPRENN BY BINDING ARBITRATION

PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.

Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer's satisfaction by calling our customer service department at 1-760-269-4264.In the unlikely event that WISPRENN's customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if WISPRENN has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.Arbitration is more informal than a lawsuit in court. Arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, allows for more limited discovery than in court, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. Any arbitration under this Agreement will take place on an individual basis; class arbitrations and class actions are not permitted. For any non-frivolous claim that does not exceed $75,000, WISPRENN will pay all costs of the arbitration. Moreover, in arbitration you are entitled to recover attorneys' fees from WISPRENN to at least the same extent as you would be in court.

In addition, under certain circumstances (as explained below), WISPRENN will pay you more than the amount of the arbitrator's award and will pay your attorney (if any) twice his or her reasonable attorneys' fees if the arbitrator awards you an amount that is greater than what WISPRENN has offered you to settle the dispute.

Arbitration Agreement

1. WISPRENN and you agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and WISPRENN. This arbitration agreement does not include claims against , or claims against WISPRENN that are based in whole or in part on the Site. This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be broadly interpreted. It includes, but is not limited to: claims arising out of or relating to any aspect of the relationship between us, whether based in contract, tort, statute, fraud, misrepresentation or any other legal theory; claims that arose before this or any prior Agreement (including, but not limited to, claims relating to advertising); claims that are currently the subject of purported class action litigation in which you are not a member of a certified class; and claims that may arise after the termination of this Agreement.

References to "WISPRENN", "you", and "us" include our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns, as well as all authorized or unauthorized users or beneficiaries of the Service or Site under this or prior Agreements between us. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. This arbitration agreement does not preclude you from bringing issues to the attention of federal, state, or local agencies. Such agencies, can, if the law allows, seek relief against us on your behalf. YOU AGREE THAT, BY ENTERING INTO THIS AGREEMENT, YOU AND WISPRENN ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. This Agreement evidences a transaction in interstate commerce, and thus the Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement.

2. A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail, a written Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to WISPRENN should be addressed to: Office of WISPRENN, WISPRENN, 13581 John Glenn Road, Unit C, Apple Valley, CA 92308 ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (1) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute; and (2) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If WISPRENN and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within thirty (30) days after the Notice is received, you or WISPRENN may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by WISPRENN or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or WISPRENN is entitled. 

3. After WISPRENN receives notice at the Notice Address that you have commenced arbitration, it will promptly reimburse you for your payment of the filing fee, unless your claim is for greater than $75,000. (The filing fee currently is $200, but is subject to change by the arbitration provider. If you are unable to pay this fee, WISPRENN will pay it directly upon receiving a written request at the Notice Address). The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Agreement, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at www.adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. (You may obtain information that is designed for non-lawyers about the arbitration process at att.com/arbitration-information.) The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Agreement. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, except that issues relating to the scope and enforceability of the arbitration provision are for the court to decide. Unless WISPRENN and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, we agree that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Except as otherwise provided for herein, WISPRENN will pay all AAA filing, administration and arbitrator fees for any arbitration initiated in accordance with the notice requirements above. If, however, the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in the Demand is frivolous or brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11(b)), then the payment of all such fees will be governed by the AAA Rules. In such case, you agree to reimburse WISPRENN for all monies previously disbursed by it that are otherwise your obligation to pay under the AAA Rules. In addition, if you initiate an arbitration in which you seek more than $75,000 in damages, the payment of these fees will be governed by the AAA rules.

4. If, after finding in your favor in any respect on the merits of your claim, the arbitrator issues you an award that is greater than the value of WISPRENN's last written settlement offer made before an arbitrator was selected, then WISPRENN will: pay you the greater of the award or $10,000 ("the alternative payment"), whichever is greater; and pay your attorney, if any, twice the amount of attorneys' fees, and reimburse any expenses (including expert witness fees and costs), that your attorney reasonably accrues for investigating, preparing, and pursuing your claim in arbitration ("the attorney premium"). If WISPRENN did not make a written offer to settle the dispute before an arbitrator was selected, you and your attorney will be entitled to receive the alternative payment and the attorney premium, respectively, if the arbitrator awards you any relief on the merits. The arbitrator may make rulings and resolve disputes as to the payment and reimbursement of fees, expenses, and the alternative payment and the attorney premium at any time during the proceeding and upon request from either party made within fourteen (14) days of the arbitrator's ruling on the merits.

5. The right to attorneys' fees and expenses discussed in paragraph (d) supplements any right to attorneys' fees and expenses you may have under applicable law. Thus, if you would be entitled to a larger amount under the applicable law, this provision does not preclude the arbitrator from awarding you that amount. However, you may not recover duplicative awards of attorneys' fees or costs. Although under some laws WISPRENN may have a right to an award of attorneys' fees and expenses if it prevails in an arbitration, WISPRENN agrees that it will not seek such an award.

6. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the individual party seeking relief and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by that party's individual claim. YOU AND WISPRENN AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Further, unless both you and WISPRENN agree otherwise, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific proviso is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

7. Notwithstanding any provision in this Agreement to the contrary, we agree that if WISPRENN makes any future change to this arbitration provision (other than a change to the Notice Address) during the period of time that you are receiving Services, you may reject any such change by sending us written notice within 30 days of the change to the Arbitration Notice Address provided above. By rejecting any future change, you are agreeing that you will arbitrate any dispute between us in accordance with the language of this provision.
