Do you have any connection, message, rate or other limits on accounts?

Ably imposes limits on accounts to prevent abuse, whether intentional or by mistake.  Without limits in place, abuse of an account can adversely affect the performance and quality of service we provide to all other customers. We are committed to providing a low latency reliable service to all customers, and as such, account limits allow us to honour this commitment.

Enterprise packages offer complete flexibility over any limits configured on an account.  Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a custom package for your business.
