Network Practices

PSC will not unjustly or unreasonably discriminate against lawful Internet content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices.

PSC engages in network management practices that are tailored and appropriate for achieving optimization on its network considering the particular network architecture and technology of its broadband Internet access service. PSC’s goal is to ensure that all its customers experience a safe and secure broadband Internet environment that is fast, reliable, and affordable.

Network Management Disclosures

PSC’s network practices include congestion- and security-protocol-management. Such protocols and practices generally will not impact our customers’ user experience.  PSC uses various tools and industry-standard techniques to manage its network to ensure fast, secure, and reliable Internet service. PSC provides the following overview of its network management practices:

  1. Blocking: PSC does not block or discriminate against lawful content, applications, services, or non-harmful devices. We conduct only reasonable network management.
  2. Throttling: PSC does not throttle, impair, or degrade lawful Internet traffic based on content, application, service, user, or use of a non-harmful device. We engage in only reasonable network management practices.
  3. Affiliated Prioritization: PSC does not favor any Internet traffic over others, including through the use of techniques such as traffic shaping, prioritization, or resource reservation, to benefit an affiliate, and we have no plans to do so.
  4. Paid Prioritization: PSC does not favor or prioritize any Internet traffic over others. We do not prioritize Internet websites over others in exchange for any consideration to benefit any content, applications, services, or devices.

Network Management Practices

PSC’s network management practices are intended to ensure that we provide the best possible Internet access to our customers. To achieve this goal, we employ network management techniques such as identifying spam and preventing its delivery to customer email accounts, detecting malicious Internet traffic, and preventing the distribution of, or inadvertent access to, malware, phishing, viruses, or other harmful code or content.

  1. Congestion Management: PSC applies sound network management principles to alleviate and prevent traffic congestion for all Customers. PSC continuously monitors the connections on its network in the aggregate for all types of traffic to determine the utilization rate. Where feasible, PSC will address congestion issues through improvements to its network or the capacity purchased from other providers needed to connect to the Internet. Such processes take time to implement and may not be feasible in all situations. Therefore, PSC may take appropriate measures to relieve undue congestion if it occurs on the network.

PSC’s network and congestion management practices do not discriminate based on the type of application being used. Nor are they based on any particular customer’s aggregate monthly data usage. We examine only current network conditions, not our customers’ online activities.

Customer conduct that abuses or threatens the PSC network or violates our Acceptable Use Policy, Internet Service Terms and Conditions, or the Internet Service Agreement will be asked to stop immediately. If a customer fails to respond or cease such conduct, we may suspend service or terminate the user’s account.

PSC also checks for abnormal traffic flows, network security breaches, malware, loss, and damage to the network. If a breach is detected or high-volume users are brought to light by complaint, we notify the customer via email or phone. If a customer violates the Acceptable Use Policy or other policies and such a violation is not remedied, PSC will seek to suspend or terminate that customer’s service.

Congestion events may occur related to the service capacity from third parties used by PSC to provide the customer with access to the Internet. Such service capacity is outside the control of PSC.

In the event we take any congestion management actions, the vast majority of our users’ Internet activities will be unaffected. Some customers may, however, experience more extended download or upload times or slower surf speeds.

  1. Application-Specific Behavior: Except as may be provided elsewhere herein, PSC does not normally engage in any application-specific network management activities on its network and undertakes no obligation to monitor or investigate the lawfulness of any specific application used by a customer. Customers may use any lawful application as part of their Internet usage. PSC will only take steps regarding an application-specific behavior by a customer if there is a reasonable belief that the application will cause harm to PSC’s network or is unlawful, including, but not limited to, violating intellectual property rights.
  2. Device Attachment Rules: For best results, modems, wireless modems, or other proprietary network gateways used on the PSC broadband network should be provided by PSC. Customers may, however, attach their own devices to their modems, including wired or wireless routers, laptops, desktop computers, video game systems, televisions, or other network-enabled electronics equipment. Customers are responsible for ensuring that their equipment does not harm PSC’s network or impair the service of other customers. PSC is not responsible for the functionality or compatibility of any equipment its customers provide. Customers are responsible for securing their own equipment to prevent unauthorized access to PSC’s broadband network by third parties and will be held responsible for the actions of such third parties who gain unauthorized access through unsecured customer equipment.
  3. Network Security: PSC undertakes no obligation to monitor or protect customer traffic from spam, viruses, denial of service attacks, or other malicious, unlawful, or unwarranted activities. PSC does not guarantee that it can protect customers from any or all security breaches. The customer is using this service at its own risk. Customers are cautioned to purchase spam filtering and antivirus software from commercial vendors to meet their needs. However, a customer subject to spam, virus, denial of service attacks, or similar malicious, unlawful, or unwarranted activities is urged to contact PSC immediately.

PSC will work with the customer on how the customer can make appropriate and economically reasonable efforts to address the matter.

Network Performance

  1. Service Description
    PSC deploys hardwired broadband Internet access to its subscribers via Fiber to the Home (“FTTH”), fixed wireless, and Digital Subscriber Line (“DSL”) technologies.
  2. Network Performance
    The length, capacity, and congestion of transport facilities purchased by PSC from third-party providers impact actual access speeds, delay times, or latency. Significant use of specialized services such as Internet-based video services can also have an effect. PSC cannot guarantee that it will be able to obtain capacity from these third-party providers at commercially reasonable prices if additional third-party capacity is needed to reach Internet nodes.

Additional factors may impact download or upload speeds for a particular distant website or other Internet resources that are beyond PSC’s control, including the speed of the connection from a distant web server to the Internet, congestion on intermediate networks, and limitations on your computer equipment like your wireless router. In addition, your inside-premises wiring could affect service performance. Accordingly, consumers should consider the capabilities of their own equipment when choosing broadband service. You may need to upgrade your computers and other networks in your home or office to take full advantage of the chosen broadband plan.

PSC tests each service for actual and expected access speeds during network installation to demonstrate that the service can support the advertised speed.  These speeds are calculated based on internal testing to the edge of our network using internal speed test tools.

Customers may also test their actual speeds using the speed test on various speed testing websites and request assistance by calling our business office at 812.357.2123 or by emailing


Advertised Connection Speeds are as follows:


50Mb/10Mb | FTTH | 50 Mb | 10 Mb

  1. Impact of Non-BIAS Data Services
    PSC offers Voice-over-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) and streaming video services (PSCstream) to end-users. For our VoIP service and video service, because these services use relatively little bandwidth, they will not adversely affect the last-mile capacity available for, or the performance of, our broadband internet access service.
