Performance Characteristics

The Performance Characteristics of the broadband Internet access service provided by Tata Communications will be determined by the performance characteristics of several networks.

Under normal circumstances within the United States, your wireless connection service between the automobile and the wireless network will be provided by one or more underlying wireless service providers, which may vary from time to time. Your service may be affected by their Broadband Internet Access network performance and network management practices and policies.

Coverage isn't available everywhere, and speeds and latency may vary considerably based on factors both within and beyond Tata Communications’ control such as network problems, software, signal strength, your wireless device, structures, buildings, weather, geography, topography, etc. It is important that you consider the capabilities of your device, Tata Communications’ network coverage, and Tata Communications’ network technologies in determining whether Tata Communications’ data services are right for you.

In some cases, users on plans with data allocations may experience reduced speed for those applications for the remainder of the usage period after exceeding their allotments. In particular, usage in excess of 20GB per month, including the usage of all connected devices, shall result in the reduction of throughput speeds for the duration of month. Usage in excess of these limits may be reduced to no less than 200kpbs throughput until your usage cycle resets. Where more than one application uses the connectivity, each of these applications may count toward your monthly data allocation. Because we do resell the connectivity of other providers we cannot assure you of the availability of particular speeds in a particular location, even when operating at a reduced speed due to exceeding your usage allotment.
