Nondiscrimination and Network Management Policy

Our Policies

As the network operator for Tillamook Lightwave, CoastCom manages its network in accordance with the FCC's Internet Policy Statement adopted on August 5, 2005. CoastCom does not discriminate or favor any lawful Internet applications, content, or services where lawfully used and promotes the ability of our customers to freely access and disseminate lawful content in a manner that respects others' use of the network and that complies with the law. CoastCom supports industry practices for safeguarding children, intellectual property rights of others and our customer's privacy and security. CoastCom follows standard best effort for Internet delivery with respect to allocation of capacity without differentiation among application, providers and sources. Generally accepted technical measures to provide acceptable service levels to all customers will be used by CoastCom, such as application-neutral bandwidth allocation, as well as measures to address service attacks, illegal content and other harmful activities to protect network integrity and reliability.

CoastCom offers physical interconnections for exchange traffic and connections to the Internet where technically feasible as long as they do not exceed current or reasonably anticipated capacity limitations. Reasonable rates and terms will be negotiated with requesting parties.

Further, CoastCom supports the following Internet principles of the FCC:

To encourage broadband deployment and preserve and promote the open and interconnected nature of the public Internet, consumers are entitled to access the lawful Internet content of their choice; to run applications and use services of their choice, subject to the needs of law enforcement; to connect their choice of legal devices that do not harm the network; and are entitled to competition among network providers, application and service providers, and content providers.
