All ADSL plans are provided as Internet Grade “Best Efforts” services and are shown in downstream/upstream format and speeds are theoretical network maximum speeds.
Actual speeds may be less due to a number of factors including network configuration, line quality & length, exchange type, customer premises interference, traffic and equipment.
AUP may be enforced if it is shown that an individual service is impacting on quality of Network, Abuse, or in breach of material terms.
ADSL services are non-refundable.
You must be 18 years old or over to connect to a Powercom Pacific internet service
Both uploads and downloads count towards your monthly data allowance. Every month, your usage resets on your ‘anniversary date’ – the day of the month on which your account was first enabled.
For all plans speeds are theoretical network maximum speeds. Actual speeds may be less due to a number of factors including network configuration, line quality and length, exchange type, customer premises interference, traffic and equipment. For example about 70% of customers on the 8000kbps service can access speeds around 6000kbps or more.

Traffic Management Policy – Summary
We reserve the right to implement traffic management policies to ensure minority of heavy users do not affect the service for the majority of users on the network. It is known that 5% of users account for around 70% of data downloaded at peak times. This obviously impacts the majority of users and as such we reserve the rights to traffic manage specific customers download speeds during peak periods to improve the service for other users.
The network is monitored daily on how much data users download during the peak times of the day. From this analysis we can identify the small number of users who are trying to download excessive amounts of data over a small period of time and the even smaller number of users who are downloading vast amounts of data constantly during peak times. Both types of behaviour can be at the detriment of service to the vast majority of users on the network. We reserve the right to traffic manage these users during peak times depending upon the behaviour of the customers in question.
To ensure that all users receive the appropriate level of service at peak times we will limit customers who have downloaded an excessive amount of data during a one hour period of the peak time frame. These customers may be limited on a one off basis to 512Kbit/s for the remainder of the peak period for that day or month depending on their plan. The peak period is specified by plan type and may vary from time to time.
Powercom Pacific recommends monthly credit card payments as any requested changes to services (such as changing Plan) can only be actioned at the start of the next billing period, as per our Terms and Conditions. Also, if selecting quarterly invoicing, the first quarterly service charge plus activation fee and any hardware charges must be paid in full before Powercom Pacific can activate the service – please talk to us if you require further information.
For monthly accounts, the setup fee, hardware and first monthly fee will be charged to your Credit Card upon service activation. Powercom Pacific accepts cash, cheque, money orders and major credit cards to pay an invoice. Powercom Pacific services are non-refundable.
Tax invoices, Powercom Pacific News & Updates are sent to your Powercom Pacific email address.
Please refer to the configuration email (supplied when your service is activated) for details of your Powercom Pacific email address.
