Everyone loves a bit of WiFi and there’s plenty to go around, but to ensure we can all benefit, we simply ask you to be mindful of a few guidelines.
Lateral City Ltd
The internet access services, comprising both the wireless service and the fixed internet access terminal (together, the "Service") are provided to you by Lateral City Limited, The Tower, 7 Advocate’s Close, Edinburgh, EH1 1ND ("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 the Terms, please do not use the Service.
Fair Use Policy
This 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?
Customer’s using file sharing software, downloading large files or streaming music and films may impact the service level, particularly at busy times.
Will I be affected by the fair use policy?
If you are not using file sharing software or downloading large files from the Internet it's unlikely you will 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 and request that you reduce your usage.
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.
