  8. What is my username?
    Many times in our documentation you’ll see the term:

    username or user name 

    When you signed up, you chose a name for your account. We’ll refer to that name throughout this site as either username or user name. Whenever you see that term, replace it with the name you’ve chosen. It’s always in lower case. 

    If you’ve forgotten your username:
    The easiest way to remember your username is that it is first part of your email address. Example – name@telepak.net is the email address. “Name” would be your username. If you still can’t remember the username you chose, call Customer Care at 1-877-835-3725 and ask for assistance. 

    Changing your username:
    After you change your username, mail sent to the old username may bounce (become undeliverable) or, if in the future someone else picks your old user name, will go to that person’s mailbox. Usernames must meet the following criteria: 

    • Must be between 4 to 24 letters or numbers long.
    • All lowercase
    • Special characters like #,%,or ^ are not allowed.

    Think carefully about changing your username. Changing it is like changing your phone number–you may lose contact with some people who won’t be able to get your new email address. If you decide you want to, call Customer Care 1.877.TELEPAK (835-3725). 

  9. What is quota?
    Your quota is how much disk space you are allowed to use on Telepak.net’s servers.

  10. Does Telepak Time Me Out?
    It’s fairly common for subscribers to accidentally leave their computers connected to the Internet long after they have finished with their online activities. Each connected user ties up a line, which is unavailable to other customers while it is in use.To prevent annoying busy signals for the rest of our customers, and unnecessary over-usage bills for those who forget to disconnect, the Telepak system is configured to watch our modems’ idle time. If the servers see no modem activity (i.e. no data transfer) for 20 minutes, the connection will be reset. You’ll be automatically disconnected. If you’re checking your email, or downloading a Web page, you won’t get disconnected. Because the modems are transferring data, the system views your connection as active.
