Before connecting to and using the Kaniu service you must agree to this non-exhaustive list of restrictions, as well as those set out in the Terms & Conditions. In the event of inappropriate use, Kaniu reserves the right to suspend or cancel your account.

Kaniu reserves the right to modify the Acceptable Use Policy at any time.

1.  Illegal use

2.  Fair Usage Policy
Kaniu internet service is supplied by Kacific and they have deemed it necessary to enable everyone to use the internet fairly. Typically, you will receive the speed and performance you pay for.
