Electronic Communications Privacy Act Notice
netBlazr makes no guarantee of confidentiality or privacy of any information transmitted through or stored upon netBlazr technology, and makes no guarantee that any other entity or group of users will be included or excluded from netBlazr’s network. In addition, netBlazr may periodically monitor transmissions over its network for maintenance, service quality assurance or any other purpose permitted by the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, P.L.

Open Internet Disclosure
This page is in response to the FCC’s Open Internet proceeding and the resulting rules published in the Federal Register here on September 23, 2011. netBlazr is committed to being far more open than most ISPs, but of course we also conform to all applicable laws, rules and regulations, so here goes.
A person engaged in the provision of broadband Internet access service shall publicly disclose accurate information regarding the network management practices, performance, and commercial terms of its broadband Internet access services sufficient for consumers to make informed choices regarding use of such services and for content, application, service, and device providers to develop, market, and maintain Internet offerings.
The FCC rule applies to “mass market” services where mass market is defined as “a service marketed and sold on a standardized basis to residential customers, small businesses, and other end-user customers such as schools and libraries.” netBlazr provides standardized fixed Internet access services to residential customers and to businesses with a focus on small and medium enterprises, typically with 5-200 employees, so these rules apply to us.
netBlazr does not practice any form of traffic-specific congestion management.
netBlazr does not engage in any application-specific blocking or rate control or apply any other application-specific policies.
netBlazr does not have any device attachment restrictions as defined by the FCC.
netBlazr does not engage in any security practices which would limit customer traffic.
We have two classes of service. “Dedicated Circuits” receive priority over “Shared Services” and our dedicated circuits provide services that are not over-subscribed. As a result, customers with dedicated circuits should always be able to receive their committed data rates while shared service customers could experience a slow-down during periods of peak usage. As a design objective, we try to ensure that every link in our network has enough extra capacity above the measured peaks in actual traffic that shared access customers do not see congestion. However, we are growing rapidly, so occasions may arise that we are scrambling to upgrade specific portions of our network.
Typical latencies between customer premises and our upstream fiber connections are <2 ms per wireless hop. All customers are within four or fewer wireless hops of a fiber connection. Latency could increase if there were congestion or in the event of interference on a wireless link.
Please send any complaints or questions by email to [email protected] and we will endeavor to resolve them directly.
