Decrease your bandwidth usage by following these few simple tips:

1. Disabling music sharing programs (such as Kazaa, Napster, and Morpheus) reduces your Internet service usage. These programs, if not properly configured, may allow any Internet user to consume your bandwidth and your personal computer's resources. Please visit our "How to disable File Sharing programs" pageĀ for more information about this item.

2. Running any type of server also may consume a tremendous amount of bandwidth. Operating a server at the end of a residential Internet connection violates PenTeleData's Acceptable Usage Policy (AUP).

3. Finally, if a wireless device utilizing your residential Internet connection hasn't been configured properly, unauthorized users may consume your Internet access without your knowledge. Please consult with the manufacturer's specifications and double-check your wireless configuration settings to ensure it has been correctly set up.
