SLA credits must be requested by You within 72 hours following the end of the downtime incident. Credits are provided towards future Company invoices or payments and are not redeemable or refundable for any currency.
Each product has a specified bandwidth limit that is explicitly stated in the product description and during checkout.

Each product also has a specified port speed (such as "1G" indicating a 1Gbps physical connection.) This specified port speed relates to the physical port and accordingly the Company makes no guarantee of throughput speeds.
