Configurable Settings for Bands
- Band Name The name of a band is not actually configurable, but is listed here for completeness. The name of a band is generated automatically by Jet, to ensure that the name is meaningful and concise. Some examples of such automatically generated names are:
- ‘Up to 500.000000 Mb inbound at no charge.’
- ‘Up to 10500.000000 Mb Inbound at $0.0030 per Mb.’
- Minimum Block This is the minimum ‘slice’ of usage that will be charged for the given band. For example, if the band is set to charge by traffic, and the minimum block is 500 Mb then this band will charge users who use less than 500 Mb as though they had in fact used 500 Mb.
- Cost per Unit This is the actual cost (in dollars) charged per unit. See the ‘Units’ setting, described below, for more about what kinds of units Jet recognises.
- Units This can be either hours, traffic (Mb), or flag fall (a per session charge). Essentially, each band has a usage-unit that its charges apply for. While Maximum Usage and Minimum Block will apply , they aren’t generally applicable alongside flag fall unit usage.
- While the ‘Maximum Usage’ setting and the ‘Minimum Block’ setting will apply for most kinds of units, they may not be appropriate when the unit is set to ‘usage’.
- Prepaid Prepaid bands require a current balance to use the system; recurring bands get charged periodically for usage to date. Note that individual bands cannot be prepaid – for this setting to take effect, the entire plan must be prepaid.
