Subisu has long served with cable Internet over coaxial cable but as the internet shifted towards fiber it gradually lost its relevancy. As Subisu has replaced its Cable net with Fiber, Wireless net is a better option in those places where fiber has not reached.

Subisu, like any other ISP in Nepal, has its own Fair Usage Policy (FUP). The ISPs argue that FUPs are put in place to deliver a uniform browsing experience for all the users.
If some users are downloading large files or streaming high quality videos, it will cause conflict with other users as they all require optimum bandwidth for smooth browsing.
FUP restricts users from hogging bandwidth and provide the same efficient service to all. Different bandwidth subscribers are assigned different FUP parameters. Once they surpass the limits imposed, they will see their speed affected. Check below to find out varying FUP on different subscriptions.
|Subscriptions||20 Mbps||35 Mbps||45 Mbps|
|Bandwidth Allotted||700 GB||800 GB||1150 GB|
|Fall Back||7 Mbps||10 Mbps||12 Mbps|
As the table illustrates if you are on 20 Mbps connection, you will get 700 GB bandwidth per month. If you exceed that limit, FUP will kick in and your speed will be throttled down to 7 Mbps. for 35 Mbps connection you will receive 800 GB per month and fall back to 10 Mbps if you cross the limit. If you are on 45Mbps, 1150 GB will be allotted to you and fall to 12 Mbps if FUP is triggered.
For those on Internet and Clear TV combo, there is a different set of parameters. Check the table below to learn about FUP policy on the premium category.
|Subscriptions||30 Mbps||40 Mbps||60 Mbps|
|Bandwidth Allotted||750 GB||900 GB||1300 GB|
|Fall Back||7 Mbps||10 Mbps||12 Mbps|
If your monthly bandwidth limit has been surpassed, a Subisu representative may give you a call to alert you. They will throttle the connection if you continue to browse to the same degree.
Your connection will be disconnected at worst if you don’t stop your exorbitant internet consumption. You need to stay alert not to surpass the limit set by Subisu, for consistent browsing.
