The Service includes connection to the Internet but does not include a connection to any services once connected to the Internet.
Periodic maintenance will be conducted where individual access points will be rebooted which may result in a brief reduction in service, however these will normally be staggered and carried out between 3 a.m. and 6 a.m. on a Sunday to reduce disruption.

We use sophisticated traffic shaping software to optimise a users experience on-line. For more details please see Quality of Service
The wireless coverage is designed to ensure a service to specific areas of each site. It will still be possible to pick up a wifi signal outside those designated areas however there is no guarantee that the service will perform as expected outside those designated areas.
The coverage provided by wireless services depends on many factors outside the control of SoldierNET, including interference from other spectrum users, RF Noise, etc. Whilst we make all reasonable efforts to minimise these effects delivery over wireless cannot be guaranteed
Signal coverage within designated service areas will vary as building construction and layout can cause localised blackspots. If you experience a problem with the signal then you should move to an area where better reception is possible.
Our networks are configured to enforce Client Separation. This is a security policy and means that other users devices cannot attempt to hack your devices. It does however mean that the network cannot be used as a private LAN even between your own devices. If you want to share content or stream content between your devices you may need to use a cable or other method to link them.
When you make an order we use a secure PayPal server. The security of your transactions is the top priority of SoldierNET and PayPal. SoldierNET and PayPal use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which provides crucial on-line identity and security. SSL is an industry standard and is one of the best ways to ensure Internet messages are not intercepted.
The charges for the Service are specified at the time of ordering and are charged in advance. Prices are specific to each location and may be based on download/upload limits and/or time. Pricing information is available on the SoldierNET website at the time of purchase.
A handling fee is charged per transaction by paypal. Paypal may show this as postage and packing.
