Maximum speed, expressed in Megabits per second. The speed may vary over time and be lower, especially during high network traffic.
Volume of data included in your monthly subscription, expressed in Gigabytes (download + upload).
BUSINESS HOUR PROTECTION
Tooway Business packages have prioritized access to satellite resources during the day (7 am -7 pm, local time), greatly reducing potential slowdowns caused by network congestion.
REDUCED PEAK RATE
Once the data allowance (expressed in Gigabytes) included in the subscription is reached (download + upload), transmission speed is automatically reduced to 256 Kbit/s downlink and 256 Kbit/s uplink, until the next monthly subscription cycle.
NETWORK MANAGEMENT POLICY
Traffic management policies may be applied to prevent any individual subscriber from placing excessive demand on available network resources and to guarantee each customers a “fair share” of network capacity. Some policies only may intervene during network congestion status, while others are applied more broadly.
CIR – COMMITTED INFORMATION RATE
A CIR (expressed in kilobit/s) is the amount of guaranteed bandwidth associated to an account. As such, it represents the minimum amount below which bandwidth will never fall, even during instances of heavy network congestion, limiting the nominal “burst” speed of the service.
NIGHT TIME PROFILE
If the Night Time Profile is active on an account, traffic between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. (download or upload) is effectively unlimited, not being accounted against the volume allowance included in the monthly subscription.
Our authorized distributors may offer VoIP phone services (Voice over Internet Protocol) through tooway Internet connection. For specific information about fares and service details, please refer to your distributor commercial conditions.
A connection Kit compatible with Eutelsat KA-SAT 9° East satellite is required to access the service. The Satellite Kit is available for purchase or lease for the duration of the subscription. In case of lease, the kit remains the sole and exclusive property of Eutelsat.
