CBN is committed to offering reliable Internet access services that will allow our customers to take full advantage of all of the lawful content and services available on the Internet.

CBN, Inc. manages its network with one goal: to deliver the best possible fixed-wireless Internet access service to all of its customers. To further this effort, CBN, Inc. uses reasonable network management practices that are consistent with industry standards. CBN, Inc. uses various tools and techniques to manage its network, deliver its service, and ensure compliance with the Acceptable Use Policy and the Customer Agreement for Internet services. These tools and techniques are dynamic and can and do change frequently. Network management activities may include identifying spam and preventing its delivery to customer email accounts, and detecting malicious Internet traffic and preventing the distribution of, or inadvertent access to, malware, phishing, viruses, or other harmful code or content.
As the Internet and its related technologies continue to evolve, CBN, Inc.’s network management tools will also keep pace so we can continue to deliver an excellent, reliable, and safe experience to all of our customers. We will provide updates here as well as other locations if we make significant changes to our network management techniques.
CBN, Inc. does maintain a system to assist with managing times of congestion. As our network technologies and usage of the network continue to evolve, we reserve the right to implement a new congestion management system if necessary in the performance of reasonable network management and in order to maintain a good Internet access service experience for our customers, and will provide updates here as well as other locations if a new system, or changes are implemented.
CBN, Inc. provides its Internet access service customers with full access to all the lawful content, services, and applications that the Internet has to offer. CBN, Inc. does not block or rate-control specific protocols or protocol ports (except to prevent spam, malicious attacks, flooding, and identity theft), does not modify protocol fields in ways not prescribed by protocol standards, and does not otherwise inhibit or favor certain applications or classes of applications.
CBN Inc. employs a number of practices to help prevent unwanted communications such as spam, to protect the security of CBN, Inc.’s customers and network. We limit the number of login, SMTP, DNS, and DHCP transactions per second (at levels far above “normal” rates) that customers can send to our servers in order to protect them from Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. (We do not disclose exact rate limits in order to maintain the effectiveness of these measures.)
In order to further protect our customers, CBN, Inc. blocks a limited number of ports that are commonly used to send spam, launch malicious attacks, or steal a customer’s information.
