    Open Internet Policy & Network Transparency Disclosure

    Download Policy PDF

    Mashell Telecom, Inc. d/b/a Rainier Connect adopts this Open Internet Policy to promote the Internet as an open platform enabling customer choice, freedom of expression, end-user control, competition, and the freedom to innovate without permission.

    No Unreasonable Discrimination: Rainier Connect does not unreasonably discriminate in transmitting lawful network traffic over a customer’s broadband Internet access service, subject to reasonable network management. Reasonable network management practices are set out below.

    Rainier Connect does not:

    • Discriminate among specific uses, or class of uses, of its network.
    • Impair, degrade or delay VoIP applications or services that compete with its voice services or those of its affiliates
    • Impair, degrade, delay or otherwise inhibit access by customers to lawful content, applications, services or non-harmful devices.
    • Impair free expression by actions such as slowing traffic from particular web sites or blogs
    • Demand pay-for-priority or similar arrangements that directly or indirectly favor some traffic over other traffic
    • Prioritize its own application, services or devices or those of its affiliates
    • Discriminate among Internet providers or edge-service providers. However, in order to make voice service available over cable modem or other broadband services, voice traffic is favored over Internet traffic

    No Blocking: Rainier Connect does not block lawful content, applications, services, or non- harmful devices, subject to reasonable network management as defined below and in its Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) at Network management practices are set forth below.

    Use of Network: In no case will Rainier Connect descriminate among customers on the basis of the type of content, applications, services or devices which the customer uses.

    Network Management Practices

    General: Rainier Connect manages its network to provide an enjoyable and useful service to its customers. Rainier Connect uses a variety of measures it deems appropriate to protect its network and customer information. However, Rainier Connect cannot guarantee that it can prevent spam, viruses, security attacks, network congestion and other actions which can affect service, but does use various filters, monitoring efforts and other measures to minimize the effects of spam, viruses, security attacks, network congestion and other actions which can affect the service provided to customers.

    Congestion: It may be possible that congestion events could occur in the future, particularly as may be related to the service capacity from third parties used by Rainier Connect to provide the customer with access to the world or sudden changes in customer usage patterns due to newly introduced, popular services that may be made available by third party providers. Such service capacity is outside the control of Rainier Connect.

    Where feasible, Rainier Connect will address congestion issues through improvements to its network or the capacity purchased from other providers needed to connect to the outside world. Such processes take time to implement and may not be feasible in all situations. Therefore, Rainier Connect reserves the right to monitor and identify which customer accounts are using the greatest amount of bandwidth during periods of heavy congestion and to work to provide solutions to address those issues. If a preferred solution cannot be worked out with the customer or customers, Rainier Connect reserves the right to manage the Internet traffic of high volume customers during periods of significant congestion. This means that the affected customers will still be able to access the Internet and engage in activities that they desire, but during certain periods of time they may experience conditions such as longer times to download or upload files, slower access and slower movements during online game playing. It is expected that any periods of traffic management due to congestion will be brief and infrequent.

    Applications and Devices

    Applications: Customers may use any lawful and commercially available application which they desire. Rainier Connect does not normally monitor the contents of the traffic or applications of the customers and undertakes no obligation to monitor or investigate the lawfulness of any specific application used by a customer.

    Rainier Connect will take steps regarding an application-specific behavior by a customer if there is a reasonable belief that the application will cause harm to Rainier Connect’s network or is unlawful, including, but not limited to, violating intellectual property rights.

    Devices: A customer may use any lawful, compatible type-accepted and commercially available device which they desire on the network provided by Rainier Connect, as long as such device does not harm the network and is not unlawful.


    Security: While we may provide some filters, Rainier Connect undertakes no obligation to monitor or protect customer traffic from spam, viruses, denial of service attacks or other malicious, unlawful or unwarranted activities nor do we guarantee the filters we provide will be effective. Rainier Connect 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 their own spam filtering, ransomware and antivirus software from commercial vendors to meet their needs. However, a customer that is subject to spam, virus, denial of service attack or similar malicious, unlawful or unwarranted activities is urged to contact Rainier Connect as soon as possible. Rainier Connect will work with the customer on how the customer can take appropriate and economically reasonable efforts to address the matter.
