Current rate for excess transfer is $1.50AUD per Gig(1000MB). Grace is given for small individual non repeating monthly excesses, but regular excesses greater than 300MB will require the purchase of another Gig.

Warnings will be given, but continued abuse of any of these policies will result in service terrmination.

Disclaimer, Indemnification, Law Stuff

I believe the saying "USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!" fits well.

Any damages suffered as a result of using any MBarron.net Services is by default your own problem. I hate to sound unfriendly but with lawyers prowling the sites at night for victims, I have to protect myself.
