These terms and conditions cover the provision of wireless network access on our sites.
The internet access services, comprising both the wireless service and the fixed internet access (CAT5/6 sockets) and internet terminals (together, the "Service") are provided to you by STAYGB LTD. ("we"/"us"/"our"). By continuing and gaining access to the Service, you agree to abide by the terms and conditions below (the "Terms"). If you do not agree to all of the Terms, please do not use the Service disconnect from the network.
Fair Use Policy
We implement a Fair Use Policy so that we can deliver an Internet service that is fast and reliable to all our customers. We monitor the performance of our network and may restrict the amount of bandwidth available to very heavy users during busy periods to ensure that the majority of our customers have a good experience.
Why have a Fair Use Policy?
Some customer's usage is in excess of that expected from normal home use and this may impact on the service level to others, particularly at busy times. This may be due to high use of file sharing software or heavy downloads of music and films. If you don't use file sharing software or download large files from the Internet it's unlikely you'll ever be affected by our policy. If you do, all we request is that you do so with consideration for other customers sharing the network, for instance, downloading outside peak hours.
What happens if my use is very high?
If your usage is frequently high and impacts our network, and the experience of other customers, in a negative way then we will get in touch with you to ask you to change your behaviour. If you intend to use your Internet connection for downloading large files please contact us so we can make prior adjustments to the network.
