Net Neutrality Disclosures

NCC, LLC/Blue Lightning is committed to providing high-quality Internet access services  and is committed to being a responsible member of the Internet Community, Including adhering to the “net neutrality” rules set forth by the Federal Communications commission (FCC).

Transparent network management Practices

NCC, LLC/Blue Lightning data network is designed to provide its customers with highly reliable Internet access and data transmission services. We do not dedicate capacity to individual customers utilizing our mass market Internet access products. We constantly manage our data network capacity to avoid blockages.  NCC,LLC/Blue Lightning has a 7x24x365 team of people who proactively monitor all network elements and services. This team uses advanced industry tools to gain visibility to impairments as well as services that may become impaired. These tools provide NCC, LLC the ability to identify deteriorating situations allowing us to resolve problems before they become service impacting. Our fundamental network design and build strategy is aimed at avoiding blockages. It is important to note that NCC, LLC has hundreds of peering partners. While data transmission over our network is rarely subject to blocking, that is not necessarily true for the networks with which we interconnect. Consequently, customers may experience blockage due to the network serving the destination or origin of their traffic or because an intermediate carrier’s network is congested. We take trouble reports and investigate every instance where customers report blockage or other service issues. We continually seek out new peering partners to make data transmissions more efficient and work with our existing peering partners to improve service.

No Blocking or Unreasonable Discrimination

Subject to our Acceptable use Policy and internet Access Policy, NCI does not block or impose rate-controls for specific protocols nor restrict interconnection of specific networks devices. Complaints and net neutrality concerns can be directed to NCC, LLC Customer Care.
