ACD.net statement on Network Neutrality and Open Access

ACD has a company policy of network neutrality and open access. ACD believes the Internet is best experienced when there is no interference from your service provider. We also believe that customers have a right to know how their Internet service is operated and managed, and they have the right to know that their Internet access will be unfettered by others unduly manipulating their usage of the network. ACD. network management policies prohibit the discrimination of legitimate or legal use of network capacity bandwidth by application, source, destination of traffic or use of the network.

ACD.net employs best effort Internet delivery policy to ensure that any organization, institution or entity connected, directly or indirectly, to the ACD network or backbone may exercise choice in lawful Internet content usage of an ACD provided or competitor service. ACD does not favor any lawful Internet applications or content over others, and is committed to enabling competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers.

ACD.net actively engages and encourages open settlement-free peering with providers and operators. ACD.net offers interconnection wherever technically feasible on reasonable rates and terms to be reached upon negotiation in good faith with requesting parties.

This policy is subject to requirements under the law and the needs of law enforcement.

ACD provides open access and network neutrality because it is our policy. ACD as well is a recipient of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (also known as the Stimulus Act) funding. This act requires ACD to post a statement regarding our compliance with Network Neutrality and Open Access. To read more about our Stimulus application please click here.
