Important Information About Optic Voice Details
Optic Voice service will not work in the event of a power outage unless a battery back-up is installed and in working order
Lynxx Networks offers an 8 hour and 24-hour battery back-up option. Contact the Customer Technology Consultant department for retail prices. A customer can also purchase a battery back-up at the retail store of their own choice.
Optic Voice is a fixed voice service which means it cannot be moved to another location outside of Lynxx’s network. It will not function. Example: A Lynxx Optic Voice customer resides in New Lisbon but spends a couple of months during the year in Arizona. They want to be able to take their Optic Voice service with them to Arizona and utilize it while staying in Arizona. The service will not work in Arizona.
If your internet service is disconnected due to non-payment of your monthly Lynxx bill, your Optic Voice will be disconnected at the same time as your internet. Your Optic Voice service is powered by your internet service. Additionally, when your Optic Voice service is disconnected, you are not able to call 911, 611, or Lynxx’s local office.
Backup Power Information for Residential Customers with Telephone Service
You are receiving this notice because you subscribe to telephone service from Lynxx Networks that is delivered on a fiber optic network. Lynxx Networks is required by the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) to annually inform you of the backup power options available for your telephone service. When your telephone service was originally activated, a power supply with a battery backup was installed at your home to power the equipment that provides the service. The initial battery was provided by Lynxx Networks at no cost. Over time, the battery’s run-time diminishes and it may eventually need to be replaced.
Why would I need a battery backup?
You would need a battery backup if you want to ensure that your telephone service continues to work during a power outage. Because the fiber optic network is not capable of carrying electric current, the service is dependent on power provided at your home. If there is a power disruption, telephone service will not work unless the power supply either has a working battery or is plugged into an alternative backup power source. A standard backup power solution from Lynxx Networks is capable of sustaining telephone service for approximately 8 hours, during which you can continue to make or receive calls and connect to emergency 911 services. The battery backup is not intended to maintain the operation of any services or devices other than telephone service. Keep in mind that if you have cordless telephones, they would also need to be connected to a backup power source for operation during the loss of electric service.
What is the cost of a battery backup unit?
A replacement 8-hour battery backup solution from Lynxx Networks will cost approximately $50.00. A 24-hour battery backup solution will cost approximately $150.00. If you decide to purchase a battery backup solution from Lynxx Networks, there is no cost for the installation. You can also purchase your own backup power solution from a different vendor or retail store. You would simply need to plug the power supply provided by Lynxx Networks into the unit that you purchase.
Proper care and use of a battery backup unit
To extend the overall life of the battery, most manufacturers recommend installation in a low humidity environment that is between 40-100 degrees Fahrenheit. The battery is rechargeable but will not last forever. To ensure that your telephone service will continue to work in the event of a power outage, it is necessary to periodically test the operation of the battery backup by unplugging the power supply from the electrical outlet and verifying that your telephone service still works. If your telephone service stops working immediately or after only a short period of time, it may be necessary to replace the battery.
Again, this is a notice to customers about backup power options for telephone service delivered on a fiber optic network. Customers are not required to purchase any type of battery backup, but it is the responsibility of Lynxx Networks to inform customers of their options.
If you have any backup power issues or concerns or would like to discuss the battery replacement options that are available from Lynxx Networks, please contact Customer Services at 608.427.6515 between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
Your Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) Rights
Lynxx Networks℠ (Lynxx Networks) provides a vast array of telecommunications and television services including local and long distance calling and Internet access. In this notice, we want to assure you that we always take great care in the way we handle sensitive information that pertains to your account, known as Customer Proprietary Network Information or CPNI. We also provide you with an opportunity to let us know if you do not want us to use your CPNI data to market to you new service offerings
Restrictions Apply to the Way We Use CPNI
CPNI includes the type, technical arrangement, quantity, destination and amount of use of telecommunications serves and related billing for those services. Thus, it contains very sensitive and personal information. Please be aware that you have a right to have this information treated confidentially and Lynxx Networks and its affiliates have an obligation under federal law to treat all information that relates to your CPNI, including your calling and billing information, in a confidential manner.
Only Lynxx Networks and its affiliates will use your CPNI. CPNI data will not be shared by Lynxx Networks and its agents with any other company or entity without your approval, except to provide the service or services to which you are already subscribed, or where we are required or authorized by law, regulation or other controlling authority to share the information with an outside party.
May We Use Your CPNI to Better Inform You of Other Service Offerings?
With this in mind, we would like you to know the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulations give you a choice – a choice about how Lynxx Networks can use your CPNI to let you know about the availability of innovative services offerings or service packages you may have not anticipated or even knew we were able to provide to you. You will also be able to enjoy savings and may even be able to combine all these services on one monthly bill.
Under FCC rules, Lynxx Networks is allowed to share your CPNI among its divisions or affiliates that provide services to which you do not already subscribe unless you tell us otherwise. If you do not want Lynxx Networks to share your CPNI with its divisions or affiliates that provide services to which you do not already subscribe, you may “opt-out” by notifying us within the next 30 days in the following manner(select one option):
- Call Lynxx Networks customer service department at 608.427.6515 or toll-free number 1.888.317.6565 within 30 days to register your request. You can contact Lynxx Networks during normal business hours or after hours. If you call Lynxx Networks after business hours or on a holiday, please leave a message for the Customer Service Department. In the message, please state your name, the name on your account, your account number, a daytime telephone number and a statement that you wish Lynxx Networks to “restrict the use of my CPNI”.
- E-mail Lynxx Networks at email@example.com. Be sure to include in your email the name that appears on your account with Lynxx Networks, the telephone number associated with your account and a statement that you wish Lynxx Networks to “restrict use of my CPNI.”
- Mail the completed form at the bottom of this letter using the United States Postal Service. The address to mail the form to is: Lynxx Networks, PO Box 267, Camp Douglas, WI 54618
“Opting Out” Does Not Affect Your Current Service
The restriction will remain in effect until you notify us otherwise. Restricting use of your CPNI will not affect the services that you currently have with Lynxx Networks. Please note that restricting your CPNI will not eliminate all of our marketing contacts with you. You could still receive marketing contacts from us that are not based on your CPNI. Also, FCC rules permit Lynxx Networks to use your CPNI to contact you about additional service offerings related to the services to which you already subscribe or to market other service offerings with your permission in the context of a customer service call.
You Can Always Change Your Mind
You can always change your mind about Lynxx Networks’ use of CPNI simply by telling us. Your instructions to our family of companies will remain in effect until you revoke or limit that approval or denial. (Please be aware that every two years, we send notices similar to this one to remind customers of their options). Regardless of whether you decide to “opt out” or not, Lynxx Networks is committed to continuing to provide you with the same high-quality services that you have come to expect from us.
I do not wish Lynxx Networks℠ or its affiliates to use my CPNI to market communications related services that I do not presently subscribe to.

LVT Corp DBA LYNXX NETWORKS Network TRANSPARENCY Statement
LVT Corp dba Lynxx Networks (“Lynxx Networks” or “Company”) provides this Network Transparency Statement in accordance with the FCC’s Restore Internet Freedom Rules to ensure that you have sufficient information to make informed choices about the purchase of broadband services. Information about Lynxx Networks’ other policies and practices concerning broadband are available at www.getlynxx.com (“Lynxx Networks Website”).
Lynxx Networks engages in network management practices that are tailored and appropriate for achieving optimization on the network considering the particular network architecture and technology of its broadband Internet access service. Lynxx Networks’ goal is to ensure that all of its customers experience a safe and secure broadband Internet environment that is fast, reliable and affordable. Lynxx Networks wants its customers to indulge in all that the Internet has to offer, whether it is social networking, streaming videos and music, to communicating through email and videoconferencing.
Lynxx Networks’ network management includes congestion- and security-protocol-management and customers generally will not be impacted by the protocols and practices that Lynxx Networks uses to manage its network.
A). Lynxx Networks’ Network Transparency Disclosures
Lynxx Networks uses various tools and industry standard techniques to manage its network and deliver fast, secure and reliable Internet service. Lynxx Networks believes in full transparency and provides the following disclosures about its network management practices:
- Blocking: Lynxx Networks does not block or discriminate against lawful content.
- Throttling: Lynxx Networks does not throttle, impair or degrade lawful Internet traffic.
- Affiliated Prioritization: Lynxx Networks does not prioritize Internet traffic and has no plans to do so.
- Paid Prioritization: Lynxx Networks has never engaged in paid prioritization. We don’t prioritize Internet for consideration to benefit particular content, applications, services or devices. Lynxx Networks does not have plans to enter into paid prioritization deals to create fast lanes.
- Congestion Management: Lynxx Networks monitors the connections on its network in the aggregate on a continuous basis to determine the rate of utilization. If congestion emerges on the network, Lynxx Networks will take the appropriate measures to relieve congestion.On Lynxx Networks’ network, all customers have access to all legal services, applications and content online and, in the event of congestion, most Internet activities will be unaffected. Some customers, however, may experience longer download or upload times, or slower surf speeds on the web if instances of congestion do occur on Lynxx Networks’ network.Customers using conduct that abuses or threatens the Lynxx Networks network or which violates the company’s Acceptable Use Policy, Internet service Terms and Conditions, or the Internet Service Agreement will be asked to stop any such use immediately. A failure to respond or to cease any such conduct could result in service suspension or termination.Lynxx Networks’ network and congestion management practices are ‘application-agnostic’, based on current network conditions, and are not implemented on the basis of customers’ online activities, protocols or applications. Lynxx Networks’ network management practices do not relate to any particular customer’s aggregate monthly data usage.Lynxx Networks monitors its network on a continuous basis to determine utilization on its network. Lynxx Networks also checks for abnormal traffic flows, network security breaches, malware, loss, and damage to the network. If a breach is detected or high volume users are brought to light by complaint, Lynxx Networks provides notification to the customer via email or phone. If a violation of Lynxx Networks’ policies has occurred and such violation is not remedied, Lynxx Networks will seek to suspend or terminate that customer’s service.
- Application-Specific Behavior: Except as may be provided elsewhere herein, Lynxx Networks does not currently engage in any application-specific behaviors on its network. Customers may use any lawful applications with Lynxx Networks.
- Device Attachment Rules: Customers must use PPPoE for authentication of point to point connections between devices on the network. There is a limit of one (1) PPPoE session per account. For best results, DSL modems, wireless modems, or other proprietary network gateways used on the Lynxx Networks broadband network should be provided by Lynxx Networks. Customers may attach devices of their choosing to their modems, including wired or wireless routers, laptops, desktop computers, video game systems, televisions, or other network-enabled electronics equipment. However, customers are responsible for ensuring that their equipment does not harm Lynxx Networks’ network or impair the service of other customers. Lynxx Networks is not responsible for the functionality or compatibility of any equipment provided by its customers. Customers are responsible for securing their own equipment to prevent unauthorized access to Lynxx Networks’ broadband network by third parties and will be held responsible for the actions of such third parties who gain unauthorized access through unsecured customer equipment.
- Network Security: Lynxx Networks knows the importance of securing its network and customers from network threats and annoyances. The company promotes the security of its network and patrons by protections from such threats as spam, viruses, firewall issues, and phishing schemes. Lynxx Networks also deploys spam filters in order to divert spam from an online customer’s email inbox into a quarantine file while allowing the customer to control which emails are identified as spam. Customers may access the spam files through the email. Spam files are automatically deleted if not accessed within 30 days.As its normal practice, Lynxx Networks does not block any protocols, content or traffic for purposes of network management, but Lynxx Networks may block or limit such traffic as spam, viruses, malware, or denial of service attacks to protect network integrity and the security of our customers.
B). Network Performance
- Service Descriptions
Lynxx Networks deploys Internet access to its subscribers through hardwired broadband access (Fiber Optic Network/Fiber to the Premise).
- Network Performance
Lynxx Networks makes every effort to support advertised speeds and will dispatch repair technicians to customer sites to perform speed tests as needed to troubleshoot and resolve speed and application performance caused by Lynxx Networks’ network. Lynxx Networks measures availability, latency, and aggregate utilization on the network and strives to meet internal service level targets.
However, the bandwidth speed at which a particular distant website or other Internet resources may be downloaded, or the speed at which your customer information may be uploaded to a distant website or Internet location is affected by factors beyond Lynxx Networks’ control, including the speed of the connection from a distant web server to the Internet, congestion on intermediate networks, and/or limitations on your own computer equipment, including a wireless router. In addition, your service performance may be affected by the inside wiring at your premise. Accordingly, you, the customer, must consider the capabilities of your own equipment when choosing a Lynxx Networks broadband service. Your computers and/or wireless or other networks in your homes or offices may need an upgrade in order to take full advantage of the chosen Lynxx Networks broadband plan.
For the wireless service, Lynxx Networks measures Bit Error Rate (BER) and the Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) parameters for transmission rates, latency, and traffic every 15 min. For DSL, Fiber and T1 service, Lynxx Networks measures traffic every 5 min. All services are best effort.
Lynxx Networks tests each service for actual and expected access speeds at the time of network installation to demonstrate that the service is capable of supporting the advertised speed.
Customers may also test their actual speeds using the speed test located at http://speedtest.airstreamcomm.net on Lynxx Networks’ website and may request assistance by calling our business office at 608.427.6515 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Impact of Non-BIAS Data Services
The FCC has defined Non-Broadband Internet Access Services (Non-BIAS) to include services offered by broadband providers that share capacity with Broadband Internet Access Services (BIAS) (previously known as “Specialized Services”) also offered by the provider over the last-mile facilities.
Real time services, such as Non-BIAS services, include Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and Internet Protocol (IP) video services, command optimal bandwidth. As Non-BIAS traffic is combined with general Internet traffic on Lynxx Networks’ network, broadband customers could experience service delays, although very unlikely, if there is an occurrence of congestion on Lynxx Networks’ network. In any such event, the Non-BIAS traffic is given priority over general Internet traffic.
Lynxx Networks provides Voice-over-the-Internet-Protocol (VoIP) to its fixed wireless customers. The VoIP traffic uses private RFC 1918 addresses, dedicated paths for VoIP and QoS on the routers/switches it touches. The QoS priority is based on the source and destination IP. Where VoIP traffic is combined with best effort Internet traffic and QoS priority is employed, the network could endure marginal delays if there are instances of bandwidth contention, although very unlikely.
Lynxx Networks offers IP video service to end-users. This non-BIAS data service does not adversely affect the last-mile capacity available for the Lynxx Networks’ broadband Internet access services or the performance of such services. Customer should note that significantly heavier use of non-BIAS services (particularly IP video services) may impact the available capacity for and/or the performance of its broadband Internet access services. Lynxx Networks will monitor this situation and appreciates feedback from its customers.
