Customer Service Agreement

Updated: October 16, 2017


This Agreement describes the terms and conditions between you and Mercury Wireless, Inc. and its subsidiaries and/or affiliates and/or distribution partners referred to herein collectively and individually as (“Mercury Wireless”, “Mercury”, “Us” or “We”) applicable to the Mercury Wireless services. This agreement contains important contract rights, limitations of those rights, and obligations between you and Mercury Wireless. You may call us at (800) 354-4915 or email us at support@mercurywireless.com.

  1. The Service. The Service consists of Internet access service as further described in this Agreement (the “Service”). The Service is available in various locations in the contiguous U.S. and its usage is subject to Mercury’s Acceptable Use Policies. To receive service, a Mercury authorized installer must install the Mercury customer premises equipment at your location.
  2. Minimum System Requirements. Each device receiving the Service must meet certain minimum requirements. As a general rule, any device capable of supporting standard IP protocols should be able to receive the service. Ensuring devices will be capable of receiving the service will be the sole responsibility of the customer.
  3. Service Commitment.
    • Service Term Commitment. If you terminate service prior to the expiration of the Service Term Commitment, you will owe (and your credit card, debit card, or bank account may be charged) the Early Termination Fee of $200.00.
    • Term and Renewal. The term of this Agreement commences on the date your Service is activated and continues for the duration of the Service Term Commitment unless terminated earlier by you or Mercury Wireless in accordance with this Agreement. After the Service Term Commitment expires, the term of this Agreement will automatically renew on a month-to-month basis until terminated by you or Mercury Wireless in accordance with this Agreement.
  4. Responsibilities and Supervision.
    • Account Setup. Installation services for the Equipment will be provided by a Mercury-authorized installer and for verifying and maintaining the account, options, settings and other parameters under which the Service is used, including (without limitation) all related passwords and user identification information.
    • Multiple use of Account. The service plan you ordered does not limit the number of computers at your location that may receive services under a single billing account. However, your “location” does not include adjacent apartments, residences, offices or any type of space not associated with your home or place of business. Any use of the Service other than as specified above constitutes an unlawful and unauthorized use of the Service and a material breach of this Agreement, regardless of whether you receive any compensation for such use, and may result in the immediate termination of the Services and the imposition of the Early Termination Fee, without prejudice to any rights and remedies available to Mercury under this Agreement, at law and at equity.
    • Installation of Equipment. You represent that there are no legal, contractual or similar restrictions on the installation of the Mercury Equipment in the location you have authorized. It is your responsibility to ensure compliance with all applicable building codes, zoning ordinances, homeowners’ association rules, covenants, conditions, and restrictions related to services provided under this Agreement, to pay any fees or other charges, and obtain any permits or authorizations necessary for services provided under this agreement (collectively “Legal Requirements”). You are solely responsible for any fines or similar charges for service in violation of any applicable Legal Requirements. You acknowledge and agree that Mercury or our designated service installer will be required to access your premises or system and to install and maintain the Equipment, including the antenna and its components, necessary for you to receive the Service inside and outside your location. By signing this Agreement, scheduling a service or installation visit, and permitting us or our service provider to enter your premises, you are authorizing Mercury, authorized Mercury vendor, or our service provider to perform all of the above actions. NEITHER MERCURY NOR OUR VENDORS OR SERVICE PROVIDERS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY LOSSES RESULTING FROM INSTALLATION, REPAIR OR OTHER SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGE TO YOUR PREMISES, LOSS OF SOFTWARE, DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION FROM YOUR COMPUTER(S). You are responsible for backing up the data on your computers and we highly recommend that you do so prior to permitting access to us or one of our designated service providers. This limitation does not apply to any damages arising from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of any installation or maintenance service provider. Timeframes for installation, if any, are not guaranteed and may vary depending on the types of services requested and other factors.
      • Subscriber Responsibility. You agree that you are responsible for all access to and use of the Service through your account or password(s) and for any fees incurred for Service, or for software or other merchandise purchased through the Service, or any other expenses incurred in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. You ratify and confirm any obligations a household member, employee, or any other individual with access to your account incurs or assumes. You acknowledge that (subject to any exceptions granted by us) a monthly fee payable in advance will apply for each and every month (or portion of a month) that you are a subscriber, beginning with the date your Service is activated. Your account will continue until you cancel the account in accordance with the method specified by us (unless otherwise terminated in accordance with this Agreement). The monthly subscription fee shall cease to apply for any months after the billing month in which you cancel or terminate your account in accordance with these terms and conditions.
      • Billing and Charges. You agree to pay, in accordance with the provisions of the billing option you selected, any registration, activation or monthly fees, ISP service charges, minimum charges and other amounts charged to or incurred by you, or by users of your account, at the rates in effect at the start of the billing period in which those amounts are charged or incurred. You agree to pay all applicable taxes related to your use of the Service, provision of services, software or hardware or the use of the Service by users of your account. Information on charges and surcharges (if any) that are to be paid to us and are incurred by you or by users of your account will be made available to you on the Mercury website, and you agree that this is sufficient notice for all purposes as to charges incurred and paid or to be paid to us. You understand and agree that you will not receive a paper invoice in the mail for your Service. An electronic statement will be provided to you on request. Additional terms relating to pricing, billing and payment which are an integral part of this Agreement are set forth on the Mercury Wireless Firm Order Commitment and are incorporated into this Agreement. Mercury reserves the right to correct and charge under-billed amounts for a period of 90 days after the incorrect statement was issued. Payment of the outstanding balance is due in full each month.
      • Late Payment. If we do not receive your payment before the next invoice is issued, you may be charged a late fee on the delinquent balance at the greater of 1.5%/month or $5.00/month as permitted by applicable law. If we do not receive payment from you before your next statement is issued, we have the right to suspend your Service or terminate this Agreement without notice. Termination of the Agreement by us due to your default or nonpayment will result in a Termination Fee owed by you.
    • Payment Authorization. Except where additional methods of payment are specifically required or permitted under applicable law or regulation or as otherwise agreed to by Mercury from time to time, you agree that Mercury can charge your credit card or debit card (“Card Payment”), or initiate an electronic funds transfer out of your bank account (“EFT Payment”) for payment of all Service fees, the Termination Fee or any other amounts payable under this Agreement. Additionally, you agree that Mercury will bill your monthly Service fee in advance, and automatically be collected through either a Card Payment or EFT Payment. With respect to such charges the following authorization applies: You agree that the charges described above will be billed to the credit or debit card provided by you when you applied for the Service until such time as you may authorize recurring EFT Payments. You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your billing account, and promptly update any changes (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, credit card expiration date, bank account number). Changes to such information can be made by calling Mercury Wireless or updating them on the Mercury website. If you fail to provide us with any of the foregoing information, you agree that Mercury may continue charging you for any service provided under your account. You agree that Mercury will not be responsible for any expenses that you may incur resulting from overdrawing your bank account.
    • Disputes and Partial Payments. If you think a charge is incorrect or you need more information on any charges applied to your account, you should contact our billing department. You must contact us within 45 days of receiving the invoice on which the error or problem appeared. Mercury will not pay you interest on any overcharged amounts later refunded or credited to you. We may, but are not required to, accept partial payments from you. If partial payments are made, they will be applied to amounts owed by you starting with the oldest outstanding statement. If you send us checks or money orders marked “payment in full” or otherwise labeled with a similar restrictive endorsement, we can, but are not required to, accept them, without losing any of our rights to collect all amounts owed by you under this Agreement. If we choose to use any collection agency or attorney to collect money that you owe us or to assert any other right that we may have against you, you agree to pay the reasonable costs of collection or other action including, but not limited to, the costs of a collection agency, reasonable attorney’s fees, and court costs.
    • Reactivation. If your Service is suspended or terminated, including for failure to submit payment on time or for any other reason, in addition to payment of past due amounts, we may require a deposit before reactivating your Service. The amount of the deposit will not exceed one year of monthly fees. Amounts deposited by you will appear on your statement as a credit, and service charges and other fees will be invoiced as described above. If you fail to pay any amount on a subsequent bill, the unpaid amount will be deducted each billing cycle from the credit amount. Credit amounts shall not earn or accrue interest. If your Service is suspended or terminated for any reason, including at your request or because of your failure to pay past due amounts, and you want to reactivate the Service, you agree to pay a reactivation fee in accordance with our then current rates. In addition you must bring your account up to date through the month of reactivation by making payment in full of any outstanding balance, fees and other applicable charges.
  5. Modifications, Rights of Cancellation or Suspension.
    • Modification of this Agreement. Upon notice published over the Service, we may at any time (and from time to time) modify this Agreement, including, without limitation, our pricing and billing terms. We may, but are not required to, notify you by e-mail, online via one or more of the websites within the Service or other electronic notice. If you do not agree to such changes or additions, then you must terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 5.3 and stop using the Service prior to the effective date of such modifications. Your continued use of the Service after the effective date of such modifications constitutes your acceptance of such modifications.

In particular, we reserve the right at our sole discretion to modify, supplement, delete, discontinue or remove any software, file, publications, information, communication or other content provided to you by Mercury or its vendors in connection with the Service. If we undertake any of these changes, we may, but are not required to, notify you by e-mail, online via one or more of the websites within the Service or other electronic notice. If you do not agree to such changes, then you must cancel your subscription and stop using the Service prior to the effective date of such changes.

You must terminate this Agreement in accordance with its terms; failure to do so may delay or prevent us from knowing that a termination was intended.

    • Notices, Disclosures and Other Communications. Where notification by Mercury Wireless is contemplated by or related to this Agreement, notice may be made by any reasonable means, including, but not limited to, e-mail or publication over the Service.

    • Construction and Delegation. Neither the course of conduct between parties nor trade practice shall act to modify the provisions of this Agreement. We may authorize or allow our contractors and other third parties to provide services necessary or related to making the Service available and to perform obligations and exercise our rights under this Agreement, and we may collect payment on their behalf, if applicable. The provisions of any Sections of this Agreement, which by their nature should continue, shall survive any termination of this Agreement.
    • Miscellaneous. If any term of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable, it shall be construed in such a way as to eliminate the offending aspects while still giving as much effect as possible to the intentions of such term. If this cannot be done and the entire term is invalid, illegal or unenforceable and cannot be so repaired, then the term shall be considered to be stricken from this Agreement as if it had not been included from the beginning. In any such case, the balance of this Agreement shall remain in effect in accordance with its remaining terms notwithstanding such invalid, illegal or unenforceable term. We may enforce or decline to enforce any or all of the terms of this Agreement in our sole discretion. In no event shall we be required to explain, comment on, suffer liability for or forfeit any right or discretion based on its enforcement, non-enforcement or consistency of enforcement of these terms. Captions used in this document are for convenience only and shall not be considered a part of this Agreement or be used to construe its terms or meaning.
    • Assignment of Account. We may sell, assign, pledge or transfer your account or an interest in your account to a third party without notice to you. In the absence of a notice of such sale or transfer, you must continue to make all required payments to us in accordance with your statement.
    • Entire Agreement. This Agreement, as well as the additional online documents specifically incorporated as a part of this Agreement, constitutes the entire and only agreement with respect to its subject matter between you and us, applicable also to all users of your account.

Open Internet Compliance Statement

Updated: October 16, 2017


This Agreement describes the terms and conditions between you and Mercury Wireless, Inc. and its subsidiaries and/or affiliates and/or distribution partners referred to herein collectively and individually as (“Mercury Wireless”, “Mercury”, “Us” or “We”) applicable to the Mercury Wireless services. This agreement contains important contract rights, limitations of those rights, and obligations between you and Mercury Wireless. You may call us at (800) 354-4915 or email us at support@mercurywireless.com.

The Federal Communications Commission issued rules to preserve the Internet as an open platform. These rules went into effect on November 20, 2011 and can be found at this link: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-09-23/html/2011-24259.htm. All Internet service providers are required to post information regarding various issues so that consumers, both residential and business, can make informed choices about choosing an Internet service provider. This document contains information regarding our services and in compliance with the FCC’s rules. The policies contained herein serve as a supplement to the existing terms of service.

  1. The FCC’s rules focus on four primary issues:
    • Transparency. Fixed and mobile broadband providers must disclose the network management practices, performance characteristics, and terms and conditions of their broadband services.
    • No Blocking. Fixed broadband providers may not block lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices; mobile broadband providers may not block lawful Web sites, or block applications that compete with their voice or video telephony services.
    • No Unreasonable Discrimination. Fixed broadband providers may not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic.
    • Reasonable Network Management. ISPs may engage in reasonable network management to maintain a high quality of service for broadband Internet access.
  2. Network Practices. ISPs must disclose their network practices, specifically in the four general areas listed below. ISPs may not block lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices, subject to reasonable network management. An ISP may not block consumers from accessing lawful Web sites, subject to reasonable network management; nor shall the ISP block applications that compete with the provider’s voice or video telephony services, subject to reasonable network management. ISPs may not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic over a consumer’s broadband Internet access service, although, reasonable network management shall not constitute unreasonable discrimination. The FCC’s rules state that a network management practice is reasonable if it is appropriate and tailored to achieving a legitimate network management purpose, taking into account the particular network architecture and technology of the broadband Internet access service.
    • Congestion Management. With the exception of VoIP and video streaming traffic, all traffic is carried equally on a “best efforts” basis.
    • Application-Specific Behavior. At our Internet edge, the TOS/DSCP bit on packets is cleared, and set to high priority on packets determined to be Voice over IP using the Cisco “auto qos voip” command.  Within the core of our network, all packets are treated equally.  At the customer edge of our network, packets with this higher priority TOS/DSCP value may given preferred treatment to improve traffic delivery over non-high priority traffic. Certain ports and protocols are blocked for the purpose of stopping the spread of viruses.  Presently, TCP and UDP on ports 135-139 and port 445 are blocked.  Protocol/port combinations may be added or removed from time to time as virus threats come and go.
    • Device Attachment Rules. Only Mercury-provided Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) can connect to Mercury’s fixed wireless broadband network. Any device capable of connecting to an Ethernet port may be connected to the CPE.
    • Security. Single-User (residential) plan customers are given IP addresses that pass through a stateful packet inspection firewall that blocks traffic that originates from the Internet without being requested. Mercury uses industry-standard technologies and practices to assure the security of its network.
  3. Performance Characteristics. ISPs must disclose the following network performance characteristics:
    • Service Description. Mercury is a fixed wireless broadband operator. Speeds vary by plan.  Plans can be found on our web site at www.mercury.net.  Latency to the Internet edge of our network is typically below 20 milliseconds, but average latency under 50 milliseconds is considered normal.  All plans except Bronze are suitable for Voice over IP.  Single-User (residential) plans Gold and above and Multi-User (business) plans Intermediate and above are suitable for Video over IP (IPTV).
    • Impact of Specialized Services. Mercury offers public, static IP addresses for $10 a month. Subscribers of Static IP addresses are not subject to the stateful packet inspection firewall that blocks traffic originating from the Internet, nor the filters that block traffic on certain protocols and ports to stop the spread of viruses, making this optional service ideal for customers wanting to host a server, remote desktop connection, security camera, or other server-hosting function.
  4. Commercial Terms. ISPs must disclose the commercial terms of its broadband Internet access service including those listed below.
    • Pricing. See mercurywireless.com for plans and prices. Data transfer limits and may apply.
    • Privacy Policies. See mercurywireless.com for Online Privacy Policy.
    • Redress Options. Customers should call or e-mail Customer Service and ask for their problem to be escalated to a Manager.
  5. FCC Notice. If a customer believes that these open Internet rules are not being met, the customer may file an informal complaint at the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC urges customers to submit any complaints via its website at the following address: http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm. Customers may also file a formal complaint at the FCC using Part 76 of the Commission’s rules.
  6. Additional Disclaimers. The Open Internet Rules, as adopted, and these Open Internet Principles are not intended to affect, alter or otherwise supersede the legal status of cooperative efforts by broadband Internet Access Service Providers and other service providers that are designed to curtail infringement in response to information provided by rights holders in a manner that is timely, effective, and accommodates the legitimate interests of the company, rights holders, and end users. Furthermore, the FCC’s Open Internet Rules, as adopted, and this company’s Open Internet Principles do not prohibit the company from making reasonable efforts to address the transfer of unlawful content or unlawful transfers of content. For additional information, please review the Acceptable Use Policy.

Customer Service Agreement

Updated: October 16, 2017


This Agreement describes the terms and conditions between you and Mercury Wireless, Inc. and its subsidiaries and/or affiliates and/or distribution partners referred to herein collectively and individually as (“Mercury Wireless”, “Mercury”, “Us” or “We”) applicable to the Mercury Wireless services. This agreement contains important contract rights, limitations of those rights, and obligations between you and Mercury Wireless. You may call us at (800) 354-4915 or email us at support@mercurywireless.com.

  1. The Service. The Service consists of Internet access service as further described in this Agreement (the “Service”). The Service is available in various locations in the contiguous U.S. and its usage is subject to Mercury’s Acceptable Use Policies. To receive service, a Mercury authorized installer must install the Mercury customer premises equipment at your location.
  2. Minimum System Requirements. Each device receiving the Service must meet certain minimum requirements. As a general rule, any device capable of supporting standard IP protocols should be able to receive the service. Ensuring devices will be capable of receiving the service will be the sole responsibility of the customer.
  3. Service Commitment.
    • Service Term Commitment. If you terminate service prior to the expiration of the Service Term Commitment, you will owe (and your credit card, debit card, or bank account may be charged) the Early Termination Fee of $200.00.
    • Term and Renewal. The term of this Agreement commences on the date your Service is activated and continues for the duration of the Service Term Commitment unless terminated earlier by you or Mercury Wireless in accordance with this Agreement. After the Service Term Commitment expires, the term of this Agreement will automatically renew on a month-to-month basis until terminated by you or Mercury Wireless in accordance with this Agreement.
  4. Responsibilities and Supervision.
    • Account Setup. Installation services for the Equipment will be provided by a Mercury-authorized installer and for verifying and maintaining the account, options, settings and other parameters under which the Service is used, including (without limitation) all related passwords and user identification information.
    • Multiple use of Account. The service plan you ordered does not limit the number of computers at your location that may receive services under a single billing account. However, your “location” does not include adjacent apartments, residences, offices or any type of space not associated with your home or place of business. Any use of the Service other than as specified above constitutes an unlawful and unauthorized use of the Service and a material breach of this Agreement, regardless of whether you receive any compensation for such use, and may result in the immediate termination of the Services and the imposition of the Early Termination Fee, without prejudice to any rights and remedies available to Mercury under this Agreement, at law and at equity.
    • Installation of Equipment. You represent that there are no legal, contractual or similar restrictions on the installation of the Mercury Equipment in the location you have authorized. It is your responsibility to ensure compliance with all applicable building codes, zoning ordinances, homeowners’ association rules, covenants, conditions, and restrictions related to services provided under this Agreement, to pay any fees or other charges, and obtain any permits or authorizations necessary for services provided under this agreement (collectively “Legal Requirements”). You are solely responsible for any fines or similar charges for service in violation of any applicable Legal Requirements. You acknowledge and agree that Mercury or our designated service installer will be required to access your premises or system and to install and maintain the Equipment, including the antenna and its components, necessary for you to receive the Service inside and outside your location. By signing this Agreement, scheduling a service or installation visit, and permitting us or our service provider to enter your premises, you are authorizing Mercury, authorized Mercury vendor, or our service provider to perform all of the above actions. NEITHER MERCURY NOR OUR VENDORS OR SERVICE PROVIDERS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY WHATSOEVER FOR ANY LOSSES RESULTING FROM INSTALLATION, REPAIR OR OTHER SERVICES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGE TO YOUR PREMISES, LOSS OF SOFTWARE, DATA OR OTHER INFORMATION FROM YOUR COMPUTER(S). You are responsible for backing up the data on your computers and we highly recommend that you do so prior to permitting access to us or one of our designated service providers. This limitation does not apply to any damages arising from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of any installation or maintenance service provider. Timeframes for installation, if any, are not guaranteed and may vary depending on the types of services requested and other factors.
      • Subscriber Responsibility. You agree that you are responsible for all access to and use of the Service through your account or password(s) and for any fees incurred for Service, or for software or other merchandise purchased through the Service, or any other expenses incurred in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. You ratify and confirm any obligations a household member, employee, or any other individual with access to your account incurs or assumes. You acknowledge that (subject to any exceptions granted by us) a monthly fee payable in advance will apply for each and every month (or portion of a month) that you are a subscriber, beginning with the date your Service is activated. Your account will continue until you cancel the account in accordance with the method specified by us (unless otherwise terminated in accordance with this Agreement). The monthly subscription fee shall cease to apply for any months after the billing month in which you cancel or terminate your account in accordance with these terms and conditions.
      • Billing and Charges. You agree to pay, in accordance with the provisions of the billing option you selected, any registration, activation or monthly fees, ISP service charges, minimum charges and other amounts charged to or incurred by you, or by users of your account, at the rates in effect at the start of the billing period in which those amounts are charged or incurred. You agree to pay all applicable taxes related to your use of the Service, provision of services, software or hardware or the use of the Service by users of your account. Information on charges and surcharges (if any) that are to be paid to us and are incurred by you or by users of your account will be made available to you on the Mercury website, and you agree that this is sufficient notice for all purposes as to charges incurred and paid or to be paid to us. You understand and agree that you will not receive a paper invoice in the mail for your Service. An electronic statement will be provided to you on request. Additional terms relating to pricing, billing and payment which are an integral part of this Agreement are set forth on the Mercury Wireless Firm Order Commitment and are incorporated into this Agreement. Mercury reserves the right to correct and charge under-billed amounts for a period of 90 days after the incorrect statement was issued. Payment of the outstanding balance is due in full each month.
      • Late Payment. If we do not receive your payment before the next invoice is issued, you may be charged a late fee on the delinquent balance at the greater of 1.5%/month or $5.00/month as permitted by applicable law. If we do not receive payment from you before your next statement is issued, we have the right to suspend your Service or terminate this Agreement without notice. Termination of the Agreement by us due to your default or nonpayment will result in a Termination Fee owed by you.
    • Payment Authorization. Except where additional methods of payment are specifically required or permitted under applicable law or regulation or as otherwise agreed to by Mercury from time to time, you agree that Mercury can charge your credit card or debit card (“Card Payment”), or initiate an electronic funds transfer out of your bank account (“EFT Payment”) for payment of all Service fees, the Termination Fee or any other amounts payable under this Agreement. Additionally, you agree that Mercury will bill your monthly Service fee in advance, and automatically be collected through either a Card Payment or EFT Payment. With respect to such charges the following authorization applies: You agree that the charges described above will be billed to the credit or debit card provided by you when you applied for the Service until such time as you may authorize recurring EFT Payments. You must provide current, complete, and accurate information for your billing account, and promptly update any changes (such as a change in billing address, credit card number, credit card expiration date, bank account number). Changes to such information can be made by calling Mercury Wireless or updating them on the Mercury website. If you fail to provide us with any of the foregoing information, you agree that Mercury may continue charging you for any service provided under your account. You agree that Mercury will not be responsible for any expenses that you may incur resulting from overdrawing your bank account.
    • Disputes and Partial Payments. If you think a charge is incorrect or you need more information on any charges applied to your account, you should contact our billing department. You must contact us within 45 days of receiving the invoice on which the error or problem appeared. Mercury will not pay you interest on any overcharged amounts later refunded or credited to you. We may, but are not required to, accept partial payments from you. If partial payments are made, they will be applied to amounts owed by you starting with the oldest outstanding statement. If you send us checks or money orders marked “payment in full” or otherwise labeled with a similar restrictive endorsement, we can, but are not required to, accept them, without losing any of our rights to collect all amounts owed by you under this Agreement. If we choose to use any collection agency or attorney to collect money that you owe us or to assert any other right that we may have against you, you agree to pay the reasonable costs of collection or other action including, but not limited to, the costs of a collection agency, reasonable attorney’s fees, and court costs.
    • Reactivation. If your Service is suspended or terminated, including for failure to submit payment on time or for any other reason, in addition to payment of past due amounts, we may require a deposit before reactivating your Service. The amount of the deposit will not exceed one year of monthly fees. Amounts deposited by you will appear on your statement as a credit, and service charges and other fees will be invoiced as described above. If you fail to pay any amount on a subsequent bill, the unpaid amount will be deducted each billing cycle from the credit amount. Credit amounts shall not earn or accrue interest. If your Service is suspended or terminated for any reason, including at your request or because of your failure to pay past due amounts, and you want to reactivate the Service, you agree to pay a reactivation fee in accordance with our then current rates. In addition you must bring your account up to date through the month of reactivation by making payment in full of any outstanding balance, fees and other applicable charges.

Open Internet Compliance Statement

Updated: October 16, 2017


This Agreement describes the terms and conditions between you and Mercury Wireless, Inc. and its subsidiaries and/or affiliates and/or distribution partners referred to herein collectively and individually as (“Mercury Wireless”, “Mercury”, “Us” or “We”) applicable to the Mercury Wireless services. This agreement contains important contract rights, limitations of those rights, and obligations between you and Mercury Wireless. You may call us at (800) 354-4915 or email us at support@mercurywireless.com.

The Federal Communications Commission issued rules to preserve the Internet as an open platform. These rules went into effect on November 20, 2011 and can be found at this link: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-09-23/html/2011-24259.htm. All Internet service providers are required to post information regarding various issues so that consumers, both residential and business, can make informed choices about choosing an Internet service provider. This document contains information regarding our services and in compliance with the FCC’s rules. The policies contained herein serve as a supplement to the existing terms of service.

  1. The FCC’s rules focus on four primary issues:
    • Transparency. Fixed and mobile broadband providers must disclose the network management practices, performance characteristics, and terms and conditions of their broadband services.
    • No Blocking. Fixed broadband providers may not block lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices; mobile broadband providers may not block lawful Web sites, or block applications that compete with their voice or video telephony services.
    • No Unreasonable Discrimination. Fixed broadband providers may not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic.
    • Reasonable Network Management. ISPs may engage in reasonable network management to maintain a high quality of service for broadband Internet access.
  2. Network Practices. ISPs must disclose their network practices, specifically in the four general areas listed below. ISPs may not block lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices, subject to reasonable network management. An ISP may not block consumers from accessing lawful Web sites, subject to reasonable network management; nor shall the ISP block applications that compete with the provider’s voice or video telephony services, subject to reasonable network management. ISPs may not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic over a consumer’s broadband Internet access service, although, reasonable network management shall not constitute unreasonable discrimination. The FCC’s rules state that a network management practice is reasonable if it is appropriate and tailored to achieving a legitimate network management purpose, taking into account the particular network architecture and technology of the broadband Internet access service.
    • Congestion Management. With the exception of VoIP and video streaming traffic, all traffic is carried equally on a “best efforts” basis.
    • Application-Specific Behavior. At our Internet edge, the TOS/DSCP bit on packets is cleared, and set to high priority on packets determined to be Voice over IP using the Cisco “auto qos voip” command.  Within the core of our network, all packets are treated equally.  At the customer edge of our network, packets with this higher priority TOS/DSCP value may given preferred treatment to improve traffic delivery over non-high priority traffic. Certain ports and protocols are blocked for the purpose of stopping the spread of viruses.  Presently, TCP and UDP on ports 135-139 and port 445 are blocked.  Protocol/port combinations may be added or removed from time to time as virus threats come and go.
    • Device Attachment Rules. Only Mercury-provided Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) can connect to Mercury’s fixed wireless broadband network. Any device capable of connecting to an Ethernet port may be connected to the CPE.
    • Security. Single-User (residential) plan customers are given IP addresses that pass through a stateful packet inspection firewall that blocks traffic that originates from the Internet without being requested. Mercury uses industry-standard technologies and practices to assure the security of its network.
  3. Performance Characteristics. ISPs must disclose the following network performance characteristics:
    • Service Description. Mercury is a fixed wireless broadband operator. Speeds vary by plan.  Plans can be found on our web site at www.mercury.net.  Latency to the Internet edge of our network is typically below 20 milliseconds, but average latency under 50 milliseconds is considered normal.  All plans except Bronze are suitable for Voice over IP.  Single-User (residential) plans Gold and above and Multi-User (business) plans Intermediate and above are suitable for Video over IP (IPTV).
    • Impact of Specialized Services. Mercury offers public, static IP addresses for $10 a month. Subscribers of Static IP addresses are not subject to the stateful packet inspection firewall that blocks traffic originating from the Internet, nor the filters that block traffic on certain protocols and ports to stop the spread of viruses, making this optional service ideal for customers wanting to host a server, remote desktop connection, security camera, or other server-hosting function.
  4. Commercial Terms. ISPs must disclose the commercial terms of its broadband Internet access service including those listed below.
    • Pricing. See mercurywireless.com for plans and prices. Data transfer limits and may apply.
    • Privacy Policies. See mercurywireless.com for Online Privacy Policy.
    • Redress Options. Customers should call or e-mail Customer Service and ask for their problem to be escalated to a Manager.
  5. FCC Notice. If a customer believes that these open Internet rules are not being met, the customer may file an informal complaint at the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC urges customers to submit any complaints via its website at the following address: http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm. Customers may also file a formal complaint at the FCC using Part 76 of the Commission’s rules.
  6. Additional Disclaimers. The Open Internet Rules, as adopted, and these Open Internet Principles are not intended to affect, alter or otherwise supersede the legal status of cooperative efforts by broadband Internet Access Service Providers and other service providers that are designed to curtail infringement in response to information provided by rights holders in a manner that is timely, effective, and accommodates the legitimate interests of the company, rights holders, and end users. Furthermore, the FCC’s Open Internet Rules, as adopted, and this company’s Open Internet Principles do not prohibit the company from making reasonable efforts to address the transfer of unlawful content or unlawful transfers of content. For additional information, please review the Acceptable Use Policy.
