illegal activities. Should we detect
or be informed of any illegal activities,
service will be immediately cut off
and the authorities notified.
SPAM, or using the service to generate
unsolicited e-mails, commercial or

is the electronic equivalent of "junk
mail," and if we detect or are
informed that you are generating SPAM deliberately,
your account will be terminated immediately.

your activities, we will discuss them
with you prior to taking any action.
We expect you to be responsible, and
that expectation extends to all members
of your family, visitors or company
who use our service.
Your computer equipment must be capable
of connecting to the Internet. Much older equipment may not be fast
enough or contain enough memory to
do the job. We recommend you avoid
very cheap, used computers - they are
usually cheap for a reason. We will
be glad to discuss your computer needs
or give advice on a computer you intend
to purchase - call our technical support
line at 918/652-4586.
HDR does not recommend the use of

page downloads, minimizing system crashes,
and the ability to store and display
programs and pages.

Purchased Wireless Equipment
HDR does not buy back equipment from a customer. HDR is under no obligation to repurchase equipment from the customer. Except for the initial 30 day
trial period, all equipment installed at the customer's location is the
property of the customer, and will not be bought back under any
circumstances should the customer elect to terminate service as provided by
HDR, or, should HDR elect to terminate the customer's account per our Right of Refusal policy.
Should the customer have an outstanding bill for equipment, or the equipment is not fully paid off, and service is terminated either by the customer or HDR, HDR has the right to repossess the equipment, and the customer forfeits any and all monies previously paid. Should the customer refuse to return the equipment, HDR will contact the Sheriff's Department to arrange for a legal repossession. We will show up at your door with the police to reclaim our equipment. If you no longer have the equipment or are hiding it, we will take you to Court to satisfy the outstanding amount owed.
Certain Websites will be blocked
HDR reserves the right to block websites that cause interference with our system. Music sharing, Video sharing and other P2P websites may be blocked as they become known to us. These sites use our system, and your computer, to send out files to other users on the internet who are not our customers, and this activity uses up all our available bandwidth, causing our customers to be unable to access other websites. We cannot and will not allow unrestricted uploading through our system.
Any illegal websites, such as those displaying child pornography, will be blocked. If you know of any sites that are illegal, please advise us and we will add them to our blocked list.
What You Get
Internet customers will have their
computer configured by us with the
necessary Radio Card Modem, coaxial
cable and external antenna for a
fee, with some restrictions
as noted below.
Your account can have up to 5 e-mail
names. HDR requires
a password for each name. Names and
passwords are all in lowercase letters,
with no punctuation or spaces. Names
that are in poor taste, vulgar, or
imply vulgarity, or are sexually explicit
are forbidden and will not be issued.
Should a name be disguised (such as
a non-English word, for example) and
we become aware that it violates our
policy, it will be removed immediately.
The same holds true for passwords.
These simply do not fit in with community
norms and do not properly reflect on
HDR's image. HDR retains sole discretion
for this policy, with all decisions
HDR issues important messages about
the system, performance, news updates,
billing, etc. This is done via e-mail.
We will send these to your primary
logon account e-mail name. If you do
not use our e-mail system, please let
us know what e-mail you do use and
we will make the change in our records.
HDR has a free Technical Support telephone
We ask you to limit your e-mail account
size on our server to 10 megabytes.
Please delete unnecessary messages.
While there is no restriction on the
size of a file that can be e-mailed,
the length of time required to transfer
huge files may be impractical. Should
your e-mail inbox exceed 10 megabytes,
and you do not reduce its size after
being requested to do so, HDR will
delete e-mails to reduce the inbox
size starting with older e-mails first.
If you use Outlook Express to
view your e-mails, this will not
be an issue as this program downloads
your e-mails to your harddrive and
off of OnALot.com's server.
You have unlimited use of the wireless system, subject to some restrictions concerning P2P activities.
Your data transfer speed will depend
on the amount of traffic through HDR's
Wireless system at any given time,
up to a maximum of 11 MIPS.
require antennas mounted up on high
points, which in HDR's case is usually the
top of a water tower or radio transmission tower. High metallic
structures attract lightning. HDR has
installed lightning protectors on our
equipment, however, that does not completely
guarantee that damage will not occur.
In the event of lightning or weather related damage to our equipment, HDR will repair our system as quickly
What You Cannot Do
- Music / Video downloaders: This activity is expressly forbidden if done through a peer-to-peer, or P-2-P, network. Many sites offer pay-per-download music and video, which is OK with us since it is download only. You pay OnALot to download files, and you can do so as much and as often as you like.
However, a P-2-P network turns your computer into a server, which sends your files to other non-OnALot users as well as prematurely wearing out your Computer's Hard Drive. This uploading uses up almost all of our bandwidth, effectively preventing other OnALot users from getting online. And quite often you, the user, are totally unaware of this upload activity since these sites don't advertise it well nor make it easily understood. We actively block P-2-P websites and will contact you if we notice excessive upload activity (which may also be a sign of a virus infected computer). If you are using a P-2-P network, and will not stop your activities, we will cut you off and may terminate your relationship with OnALot.com permanently if you do not agree to comply. There will be no refund on installation or equipment should this occur, so don't ask.
- Bit Torrent programs are forbidden for the same reasons shown above for P2P activities.
- You cannot host any activity. Hosting
includes but is not limited to chat
rooms, web sites, ping sites and
any other commercial or noncommercial
activity where other external Internet
users will be adding or extracting
information from your computer. HDR
is also in the business of hosting
web sites, and you can contract with
us for your needs at www.onalot.net
- You cannot use your computer as
a server with or connect a server
to OnALot.com's service.
- You cannot provide a gateway from
OnALot.com to any other Internet
service or provider. The intent here
is to prevent you from becoming a
reseller of another ISP's services.
- You cannot resell, reuse, transfer
or convey HDR's services, either
for free or for a fee or other compensation.
You are allowed to network the computers
contained inside your home or business
only. HDR offers a 2 account special
should you need a connection at your
home and another at your office.
- You are not allowed to share an
HDR provided Internet connection
by connecting another person or business'
computer to yours when the other
person is not related to you, or
the other business is not owned by
you. You and your neighbor cannot
share an account. Account sharing
of any kind is not allowed, except
by members of the same household
who live under the same roof. All
sharing is to be done on the same
campus, and not in separate locales.
- Should you knowingly pursue an
activity that damages, compromises
or disables HDR's system or systems,
or compromises the privacy of our
other customers, or damages their
computers or other property, or interferes
in any way with anything anyone else
is doing, you will be prosecuted
to the fullest extent of the law.
Hacking is not allowed. Interfering
with the operation of any computer
or electronic system that you do
not own is a crime. Our logfiles
will be given to prosecutors and
- Intentional creation and / or distribution
of what is commonly known as a "Computer
Virus" is not allowed, and is
- Do not ask HDR to provide software,
upgrades or copies of commercially
available products. You are free
to buy those from retail outlets.
- If your Windows operating system
becomes corrupt for any reason, you
should recover it using the original
disks and keys as provided by Microsoft.
If you bought a used computer, and
these disks and keys were not provided,
HDR cannot help you. You should seek
assistance from the person or company
where you obtained the computer.
Speed Reduction, Service Termination and Limitations
HDR's systems are all shared systems, meaning, you and our other customers all share the same radio system, and you each get a portion of the total bandwidth available. If no one else is on, you get it all. If others are on, you will get the maximum throughput that the system will parcel out, which is dependant on the other's activities.
Some customers disregard the needs of our other customers, and disregard HDR's policies on things such as P2P sharing. Once identified, HDR considers them to be abusive users of the system. We define them as follows:
When you have been determined to be an abusive customer, the following actions will be taken against you:
- Your throughput will be severely cut. Your maximum upload speed will be reduced to 16,000 bps, and your maximum download speed will be reduced to 512,000 bps, or less.
- Should you still excessively use the system, we will temporarily cut you off.
- If we return your service, and the abuse continues, your service will be permanently cut off. There is no refund on equipment for any reason if you are cut off due to abusive use of the system.
HDR does not and will not sell, give
away, reveal or convey any information
about you, your account, your e-mail
activity or any other activity of yours
that we may be aware of without your
written consent. The sole exception
to this is that HDR will cooperate
with any Law Enforcement agencies regarding
Your account information, bank preferences,
credit card numbers and any other financial
information is kept confidential.
HDR cannot "see" what you
are doing when you are on the Internet,
and we have no desire to eavesdrop
on your activities. HDR has the ability
to view your e-mail accounts on our
servers, but does not do so unless
you request it. HDR, only at your request,
will open your e-mail account and perform
requested tasks, such as remove viruses,
reduce account size or change account
names. As part of our normal monthly
system maintenance, HDR will reduce
the size of your e-mail inbox to a
maximum of 10 megabytes, but only after
we request you do so and if you do
not comply within a reasonable amount
of time. Size reduction requires we
open your e-mail files and view messages
HDR has a robust anti-SPAM filter on our email server. This filter rejects nearly all unsolicited emails so they don't fill up your inbox.
By connecting to the Internet using
the system known as OnALot.com provided
by HDR, you fully agree to all of the
above terms and conditions.
HDR reserves the right to modify this
agreement at any time and without prior
notice of any kind. HDR also welcomes
your input on all of the above. If
there are special circumstances that
need to be accommodated, HDR, with
no guarantees and at it's sole discretion,
may make changes as concerns your needs.
A fee may be involved to do so.
