How does Fair Access Policy (FAP) work?
The policy is implemented automatically by monitoring your usage over a rolling 72-hour period. Each YahClick service plan is assigned a Download Allowance. The Download Allowance is the amount of data “in bytes” that can be downloaded by a subscriber without restriction within a rolling 72-hour period. As you download data, your allowance will be depleted.
During periods of low use, your remaining allowance will slowly recover. When your usage over the past 72 hours exceeds that allowance, you will enter the FAP Recovery Zone, and your download speeds will be reduced to 32 Kb/s. During the FAP Recovery Zone, your Download Allowance is slowly refilled, and after approximately 24 hours, your download speed will be restored.
If you continue to use your service to download while in the FAP Recovery Zone, it may take more than 24 hours for your Allowance to be refilled and your speed to return to normal.
