To all PRDC internet customers

We are currently experiencing problems with our internet capacity and the excess demand for internet bandwidth.  These problems have been traced back to excessive use of streaming programs like Netflix and movie downloads.  We are taking steps to manage this problem.

PRDC will cap high demand users to allow all subscribers access to the internet.  Users who exceed a certain level of demand will have their internet access limited on a daily basis to allow other users access to the system. 

This policy is temporary until PRDC can upgrade its service from Bell.  Bell expects to be able to add bandwidth later this year or early in 2015.

Thank you for your patience.
