Uncapped Accounts
It is our goal to protect the integrity of our network, in order to provide the best possible internet experience for all of our customers using all Uncapped services and as such we reserve the right to manage uncapped users who are deemed to be causing an unusually large burden on the network. We are committed to managing our network in a way that allows us to provide all users with the best experience possible, however we cannot guarantee that the allocated capacity will always be available.

Home Uncapped ADSL
The Cybertek Protocol Manager is used to provide all home uncapped users on our network with the best possible internet experience. During peak network times, we give priority to real time services (such as browsing, email, streaming etc), high bandwidth services such as NNTP, Peer-to-Peer and Torrents (and similar but not limited to) will receive less priority. Clients deemed to be continuously uploading/downloading or using the service for unattended automated processes will be managed by the Cybertek Protocol Manager. The Cybertek Protocol Manager may be used to manage clients by rate limiting (slowing down speed) and limiting or preventing service using specific protocols or ports. We reserve the right to use the Cybertek Protocol Manager to manage the integrity of our network should network capacity not be available at any time, we assure our clients that we will do this in a responsible manner should the need arise.

Any user that is found attempting to bypass or circumvent the Cybertek Protocol Manager will be suspended and could have their service cancelled.

Business Uncapped
This is an uncapped account that is prioritised for Business Users based on available network capacity where high priority is required for typical business protocols. Business protocols such as VOIP, Terminal Services, Web Browsing and Email are unshaped. Clients deemed to be continuously uploading/downloading or using the service for unattended automated processes or non-typical business protocols (such as but not limited to NNTP, Peer-to-Peer, Https Downloading and Torrents) will be managed by the Cybertek Protocol Manager. The Cybertek Protocol Manager may be used to manage clients by rate limiting (slowing down speed) and limiting or preventing service using specific protocols or ports.

Cybertek reserves the right, to at its discretion manage non typical business protocols such as but not limited to NNTP, Peer-to-Peer, Https Downloading and Torrents and/or rate limit account speed. We reserve the right to use the Cybertek Protocol Manager to manage services in order to protect the integrity of our network according to the available network capacity, we assure our clients that we will do this in a responsible manner should the need arise.

Any user that is found attempting to bypass or circumvent the Cybertek Protocol Manager will be suspended and could have their service cancelled.

All uncapped accounts are to be used on 1 line only and will be linked to one (blocking all others) should it be discovered that the account is being used on more than 1 ADSL line.
