- 30 simultaneous connections are allowed. If you have more than 30 simultaneous connections, you will be charged 9 more credits per 30 concurrent connections. For example, if your hotspot reaches 100 simultaneous connections in a month period you will be charged your 9 (or 12) + 3*9 = 36 (or 39 credits).
- A subscription period is 31 days. At the start of each month period (for each hotspot), the credit balance is debited and the subscription can't be changed until the next month period. It is possible to schedule automatic renew, upgrade or cancellation for the next period.
- When cancelling a ticket subscription, you will automatically be charged according to the per ticket pricing.
- The per hotspot pricing is based on the hotspot mac address. You are allowed to have multiple hotspots configured on the same hotspot account, but you will still be charged per hotspot.
- When subscribing, you are not required to indicate a mac address (if you don't know it). On the first user connection, the hotspot will look for a subscription with its mac address. If none is found, it will look for a subscription with no mac address and will assign its mac address to the existing subscription.
- You are NOT allowed to change your hotspot mac address. If such abuse is detected, your account will be canceled.

Per ticket pricing
- The best choice is you are not sure about your hotspot usage.
- Ticket generation and printing is still FREE!
- You are charged only when the ticket is being used for the first time.
- For multiple usage tickets, you are charged when it is used for the first time for each new device.
- For testing purpose, low time tickets (less than 2 minutes) usage are completely free.
- The per ticket price (in credits) is based on the ticket access profile time (average between total connection and expiration time). The price is displayed in the "Manage access profile" page, at the bottom.
- FREE under 2 minutes ( useful for testing or evaluation purposes)
- 0.13 credit for 1 hour
- 0.25 credit for 5 hours
- 0.40 credit for 1 day
- 1 credit for 1 week
- 2 credits for 1 month
- Tickets MUST have an expiration time, otherwise they won't be allowed to connect under the usage based pricing. The profile time taken into account is the average between the total connection time and the expiration time. For example, if you have a 6h total connection time and 24h expiration time, your profile will be considered as 12h long. Maximum profile time is 30 days.
- Once the profile time is determined, the price is a continuous function that goes through the prices displayed above. For example, a 12h ticket is charged 0.31 credits. You can use any time up to one month.
- If you use an unlimited ticket usage period then choose to stop it to get usage based pricing, all unfinished tickets that were started inside the unlimited period will be charged as if started in the usage based period.
