ION’s Services are not to be used as a back-haul for any ISP type of use. The ION bandwidth is
provided on a shared and dedicated basis and the ION network is configured to provide an
outstanding business-grade level of service to all its customers. To maintain that level of service ION
will not permit a small fraction of its users to monopolize the network to the detriment of its other users
and therefore reserves the right to limit the available speed or amount of throughput available to any
customer. ION reserves the right to limit, when necessary, the use of the network and/or its Services
by those users whose network bandwidth consumption is among the highest 10% in order to keep
their usage patterns from negatively affecting other users.

Services through his/her account or password(s), whether or not authorized by the Subscriber and for
any and all fees and expenses incurred for these Services. The Subscriber will monitor the use of
his/her account and if necessary enforce a limit for their employees. The Subscriber acknowledges

termination fees, all applicable taxes and other amounts charged to or incurred by a Subscriber or
users of a Subscriber's account, whether authorized or unauthorized; at the rates in effect for the

and other payment obligations of the Subscriber must be paid in U.S. Dollars via bank transfer/wire.
Payment by credit card will be made available on request with the addition of an administrative
surcharge. The Subscriber acknowledges and agrees that if payment is not received before or on the
“Due Date” ION will add at its own discretion a “late fee”. ION may, in its sole discretion, as an
exception accept partial payments from a Subscriber. In case ION has consented in writing to receive
partial payments from a Subscriber, such partial payments will be applied to the Subscriber's account,
beginning with the oldest outstanding statement. ION´s acceptance of any partial payment from a
Subscriber can not be seen as a waiver of any other obligations of same Subscriber under this

Services for non-payment; in that case the Subscriber consents to any service fees charged by ION.
4.2.1 Pro-rata after requesting a change in Service

pay the reasonable costs associated with the enforcement of this Agreement by ION against said
Subscriber including, without limitation, any and all collection costs, court costs and attorney fees. In
the event that a court of competent jurisdiction finds that the Subscriber has not breached this

invoice (wether online, through email or paper) the Subscriber understands and agrees that ION may,
in its sole discretion, report this to the appropriate credit reporting agencies.
4.6. Reactivation. In case ION deactivates a Subscriber's access to its Services for the Subscriber's
failure to make timely payment or for any other reason, ION reserves the right to require a deposit or
advance payment of one month before reactivating same Services. This is in addition to ION's current
reactivation fee. Furthermore ION will not reactivate its Services until the Subscriber has paid any and
all outstanding balances.

fully compatible terminal equipment and communication devices to access ION´s Services as
