TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR USE OF FREE WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE
Southbourne Grove Hotel
The internet access services, comprising the wireless service ( the “Service”) are provided to you by The Southbourne Grove Hotel, 96 Southbourne Road, Bournemouth BH6 3QQ. (“we”/”us”/”our”). By 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.
Fair Use Policy
The Fair Use Policy has been implemented so that we can deliver a broadband service that is fast and reliable to all our guests.
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 guests 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.
Will I be affected by the Fair Use Policy?
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 guests, in a negative way then we will get in touch with you to ask you to change your behaviour.
How can I manage my usage more efficiently?
If you intend to use your broadband connection for downloading large files we suggest you try and do this outside of peak hours.
