NuLink Digital's IP Network Congestion Management Policy

NuLink is committed to providing each of our customers with the best Internet experience possible. To this end, NuLink employs minimally invasive network congestion management processes that are consistent with industry practices, insure fair and equitable network resources sharing, minimize network congestion and maximize user enjoyment.

 

Because NuLink values each customer and recognizes that everyone's usage of the Internet may differ, NuLink does not impose usage limits, usage caps, or penalties for usage that exceeds a threshold.

 

NuLink uses two processes to accomplish its congestion management goals; traffic prioritization and, to a limited degree, protocol specific equable bandwidth constriction.

NuLink's traffic prioritization works by placing a high priority on time sensitive traffic such as messaging and collaboration, telephone and most on-line gaming traffic. This prioritization is provider neutral, so our customers will experience the same low network latency for these protocols and services whether the traffic originates with NuLink, or any one of the multitude of sources or providers that use the Internet as their transport medium. The use of such prioritization ensures that these time sensitive services perform without issue on NuLink's network. Below is a comprehensive list of specific protocols that are assigned high priority on NuLink's network:

NuLink's protocol specific equable bandwidth constriction works by setting a margin for each video stream established between a user's modem and a legitimate commercial IP streaming video provider to the lesser of the capacity provided by the subscriber's service package, or 2.5 Mbps. This margin is placed on each stream on all modems associated with each residential Internet subscription in an effort to insure that no one stream inequitably dominates NuLink's network resources, and all modems have fair and equal access to those resources. Because a high amount of bandwidth is allocated to each stream's margin, little or no effect should be experienced by NuLink customers.
