Internet Usage Policy Rule

The Houston Astronomical Society is providing Internet service at the site to all its members and member’s guests that use the site. We are limited on the Bandwidth that is being provided, so there are a few rules that apply for this privilege.

  • NO downloading or streaming of movies, music, videos, TV etc...
  • NO viewing of inappropriate sites. If it’s NSFW (Not safe for work), it won’t be here either.
  • NO online games/gaming
  • Turn off automatic updates of Apps, software, or operating systems on your phones, tablets, or laptops
  • Turn off file synchronization of sites such as Dropbox, Google Drive, One Drive, Box, etc...
  • Turn off automatic system backup software such as Carbonite, Crashplan, Mozy, Backblaze, etc...

 You are permitted to check email and weather forecast and the downloading of software for telescope problems only. These rules apply to members and member's guests. Remember that this is being paid out of your dues. If we exceed the monthly Bandwidth, then membership dues will have to be raised to cover the additional cost of this service.
