Payments are due in advance on or before the First day of the calendar month of the billing cycle. If the payment of any service period is is not received (or cannot be charged to the Credit Card online) by the 5th calendar day from beginning of the service period, MegaNetServe may assess a late fee of 10% of the amount due. MegaNetServe may also at its descretion interrupt services subscribed under this agreement if the account becomes past due without giving further notice. If the Service is interrupted, then there will be a $30.00 Service re-instatement fee imposed per network connection, which shall be due along with the late fees and past due amounts prior to reinstatement of service.
The service you are purchasing includes a certain amount of 'Bandwidth' as shown in the service description. This figure is NOT Data Transfer. It is an approximate 'Network Pipe Size' that will allow traffic of a certain amount of data transfer of a 30 day period. To monitor your 'bandwidth' usage, MegaNetServe uses a monitoring system & graphing tool based on MRTG. Port traffic readings are taken from the network port to which the server is connected, and a usage graph is generated and updated every 5 minutes. This monitoring system shows the traffic in Kbps or Mbps. 'Bandwidth' usage is calculated by sampling the port usage at 5-minute intervals and calculating the monthly peak usage. For billing purposes your usage is calculated at 95th percentile of the peak readings. This means, the highest 5% of the readings collected in a given month (432 highest readings = 36 hours) is removed from the data before determining your peak usage for the month. For billing purpose, the Monitoring Tool Data is translated to Gigabytes per month Bandwidth usage using a formula of:
1024 Kbps (1 Mbps) of peak usage at 95th percentile = 330 Gigabytes Bandwidth usage for the given month.
(This simply means that you can transfer up to 330 Gigabytes per month on a 1 Mbps 'pipe’ over a 30 day period).
If 750 Gigabytes of Bandwidth allocated to your server we expect your peak usage to stay around 2.3 Mbps or less
If 1500 Gigabytes of Bandwidth allocated to your server we expect your peak usage to stay around 4.5 Mbps or less
If 2500 Gigabytes of Bandwidth allocated to your server we expect your peak usage to stay around 7.5 Mbps or less).
Any excess bandwidth usage will be billed to customer in 1 Mbps increments at the rate of $20 per Mbps.
If customer upgrades to an Unmetered Connection option, then the 95th percentile calculation method does not apply; instead the usage is calculated on peak usage of the network port. Any over usage above the pre-purchased Bandwidth size of the Unmetered Connection is billed in 1 Mbps increments at the rate of $20 per Mbps.
Customer shall be responsible for monitoring the bandwidth usage using the monitoring tool provided by MegaNetServe. MegaNetServe will bill customer monthly for any Network Bandwidth Usage in excess of customer's pre-paid Bandwidth Allocation per this service agreement. If customer's bandwidth usage at any time substantially increases above the pre-paid amount, MegaNetServe may at its discretion, require the customer to make an interim payment to cover the additional usage prior to the next billing cycle.
