Fair Access Policy

Switch Enterprise Satellite Internet Unlimited Plans are governed by a Fair Access Policy (FAP) which protects the overall network from remote terminals exceeding their allotted bandwidth allocation based on their contention ratio.

Unlike some other satellite providers, Switch satellite internet customers on our Standard or High-Use plans do not get throttled down or charged with overage fees if they go beyond their allotted bandwidth. Switch simply makes a courtesy call to discuss moving them up to a higher plan or modifying the network user restrictions to protect the network. And with UNLIMITED DATA, customers never have to worry about unexpected cost increases at the end of the month.

Remote Terminal Pricing

Pricing for remote terminals (which include antenna, modem, controller and other necessary hardware) is contingent upon link budgets and site requirements.

We can recommend or provide fixed, fixed-mobile or fully-mobile/stowable systems, so bring your own (as long as it is compatible with our network) or inquire with Switch Sales for more information about purchasing or renting our equipment.

* Unlimited data may not apply to all plans and services. Please inquire.
