Network Management Practices

  1. Blocking– Viya does not block or otherwise prevent end user access to lawful content, applications, or services.
  2. Throttling– Viya does not degrade or impair access to lawful internet traffic on the basis of content, application, service, user, or use of a non-harmful device.
  3. Affiliated Prioritization– We do not directly or indirectly favor some traffic over other traffic, including through the use of techniques such as traffic shaping, prioritization, or resource reservation, to benefit an affiliate.
  4. Paid Prioritization– We do not directly or indirectly favor some traffic over other traffic, including through the use of techniques such as traffic shaping, prioritization, or resource reservation, in exchange for consideration, monetary or otherwise.
  5. Congestion Management– Viya strives to always provide service at the speeds you subscribed to, however, we reserve the right to manage our network for maximum efficiency. The bandwidth provided by Viya is a shared service.  Any quoted bandwidth rating/transfer rate for the service is a maximum rate and not guaranteed based upon the shared service.  Due to the demands of the internet, the limitations of other networks that comprise the internet and your equipment limitations, the availability of maximum speeds will vary.
  6. Application Specific Behavior– We do not block or rate-control specific protocols or protocol ports, modify protocol fields in ways not prescribed by the protocol standard, or otherwise inhibit or favor certain applications or classes of applications.
  7. Device Attachment Rules– To ensure service functionality at your location, you are required to use modems and/or routers provided by Viya. Aside from using our equipment to receive the service at your location, Viya places no restrictions on the types of devices you may connect to our network, provided the device is compatible with and does not harm our network or other users.
  8. Security– We understand the importance of network security and strive to provide our customers with the best possible network experience. Through the use of network tools and monitoring, we try to detect and minimize the impact of any threats to the security and availability of the network. In the event we become aware of spamming or other efforts to deny service, we reserve the right to terminate your access without notice.

As a Viya customer, you are solely responsible for the security of any device you choose to connect when using our services, including any data stored on that device. Further, you are required to take all necessary steps to secure and manage the use of the services you receive from us in such a way to assure that network abuse and fraudulent activity is prevented.
