Bandwidth Fair Usage Policies

The Message Centre provides unmetered data on VPS, Cloud Servers, Shared/Reseller Hosting, Colocation and Dedicated Server packages which offer generous fair use data transfer. Data transfer covers bandwidth usage Nationally (Australia) per month unless otherwise stated as is the case with our Colocation and Dedicated Server plans where this bandwidth policy extends to International data. This bandwidth for Colocation and Dedicated Server plans provides customers with up to 50GB of International data transfer per month as they wish to use without any additional charge.

Customers may use this data for any purpose other than those unacceptable as stated in our Acceptable Use Policy. Customers will receive a notice warning upon reaching 80% of their International allowance. Usage beyond this limit will incur a charge of $5.00 AUD per 1GB of International data transferred (pro-rated to usage). Your server will be limited to 128kb/s for both National and International traffic. Please contact our Support Desk should you wish to purchase an additional data pack.

Should The Message Centre deem a customer’s account as exceeding fair use bandwidth consumption which causes interference with other users, we will notify the customer and allow the customer to remedy the problem. However, should a customers’ bandwidth usage be significantly greater than fair use, The Message Centre reserves the right to suspend or throttle the customers account where appropriate.
