I would be interested to know the thoughts of forum on Fair Acess Policy , this is where shared packages are throttled when excessive downloading exceeds the laid down quotas to lower speeds in order that the Bandwidth is shared equitably.

We hear many times in particular of providers offering packages that are shared but with no FAP but this in our view is impossible to do as it would mean that the package is the same as dedicated and unless the customer is paying dedicated prices then I can not see how the service package is sustainable .

Your thoughts would be welcome

Hi,
I think a FAP is very important but i think u can always do a bandwidth manager can do better.If u have 10 users on a bandwidth of say 512 on the download,meanng 1:10 ratio then u can have all with 51.2 at peak period nd as they reduce. the ratio becomes smaller and the allocation to the remaining on the network increases ie BURST
If u allow an open bandwidth there will always be abuse cos human needs can never be met but it can be regulated
