Availability of Service

Availability of Service

The service is provided via wireless microwave, the service may be effected by the terrain, weather conditions, foliage, electronic interference eg microwave ovens, Bluetooth connected devices, other wireless LAN equipment or any other electronic devices. As the service operates in the unlicensed ISM band, there is no legal protection against this interference with the exception that it is illegal to provide Internet access without a Telecommunications Licence. Hence Nelson Bay Online cannot guarantee the acceptability or continuity of the service. The service requires power at both the customers home and the transmission station to function, if access to Emergency or other numbers is required during this time it is the customers responsibility to ensure they have alternative means of making a call. While it may be possible to call Emergency numbers, the location of the caller may not be registered with the call centre and the customer may need to verify their location with emergency services in order to receive an appropriate response.

Managing Your Spend

Managing Your Spend

If you are a residential customer, we will help you control your spend by providing you with notifications via email when you reach 50%, 85% and 100% of your data allowance that is included in your broadband plan. Usage notifications do not happen in realtime but are processed the following day, so there will be up to a 48 hour delay to receive the notification. When you reach your data allowance, the default settings on our plans are to not bill for excess charges but to throttle your download speed.
