- Network Management Practices
- Blocking. Other than reasonable network management practices necessary to protect the security and availability of service to all customers, AgPro Wireless does not block or otherwise prevent end user access to lawful content, applications, service, or non-harmful devices. Nothing in this statement prevents us from taking temporary actions to block traffic and/or particular ports in an effort to protect the usability of our network for all users if we believe in good faith that said traffic is of malicious or harmful origin, or in direct violation of our Acceptable Use Policy / Terms of Service. If you feel that any such content is being blocked in error, please contact us via any of the contact methods available on our website.
- Throttling. AgPro Wireless does not throttle Internet services except for all traffic in aggregate to a given customer based on the speed plan purchased. Basic speed plans and associated throttling limits vary by service location.
- Affiliated Prioritization. AgPro Wireless does not utilize any Affiliated Prioritization.
- Paid Prioritization. AgPro Wireless does not utilize any Paid Prioritization.
- Congestion Management. AgPro Wireless internet services are "best effort" service. Basic QOS settings may be employed to help provide the highest possible quality of service to all subscribers. At no time is any particular type of traffic blocked. We regularly monitor network usage, and attempt to proactively increase resources where available to minimize congestion. At this time, network congestion is infrequent. Congestion management is not usage based.
- Application-Specific Behavior. Agpro Wireless does not apply any Application Specific Behavior.
- Device Attachment Rules. Within the constraints set forth in our Acceptable Use Policy / Terms of Service AgPro Wireless will allow customers to connect any device to our network, provided that said device or its usage does not cause harm to our network. We cannot guarantee the compatibility of any particular device.
- Security. AgPro Wireless uses industry standard AES encryption on all radio transmission equipment. We also employ firewall rules and NAT at our routers, as well as NAT at the customer premise equipment. We encourage all of our customers to protect themselves from malicious and unwanted content by a number of means, including a host of commercially available anti-virus, firewall, anti-malware, and other similar products. We also encourage strong password management to prevent unauthorized access to customers accounts and equipment. The customer is ultimately responsible for their security while utilizing our network.
- Performance Characteristics
- Service Description. AgPro Wireless offers fixed wireless internet service, based on geographic availability. We offer a range of speed plans, again based on availability to end users within our coverage area. Our basic speed plans begin at 3Mbps Download x 1.5Mbps Upload and increase from there. Not all plans are available in all areas. All services are "best effort", and as such will be up to the stated plan max speed. At this time, typical actual speeds reach advertised levels a majority of the time. Several factors can influence speeds seen, including but not limited to: physical obstructions, foliage, atmospheric conditions, age and quantity of connected equipment, performance of customer or company provided equipment, distance from the tower, and total aggregate traffic on the network at a given point in time. Several users of our system work from home, including both VoIP and various other real-time uses without issue. Typical latency to common sites from our end users is <100ms, and for many users is <50ms.
- Impact of Non-Broadband Internet Access Service Data Services. AgPro Wireless does not currently offer any Non-Broadband Internet Access Service Data Services.
- Commercial Terms
- Price. Pricing and installation fees vary based on available services in a given area. The available speed and price packages are disclosed and agreed to at time of installation upon completion of a free site survey. There are no usage-based or early termination fees associated with any of our current plans. Additional network services beyond included basic services are quoted prior to installation or activation. Current customers, as well as prospective customers can obtain current pricing information by contacting us via any of the contact methods on our website.
- Privacy Policies. AgPro Wireless does not share your information with any third party not directly associated with provision of subscribed services. A third party credit card processing service is used for billing and collection of service related fees.
