5 Fair Usage
5.1 CSL’s terms and conditions contain terms relating to fair usage which shall apply to your use of CSL’s services.

The limits are set by network operators and CSL will inform you of the limits if they apply and when they change. For services using a mobile operator’s SIM card the fair usage limit is 650GB per calendar month. If a fair usage limit is exceeded then CSL may restrict or suspend usage of the affected services.
5.3 CSL (or network operators) may temporarily reduce the bandwidth on a particular connection to deal with network congestion.
