BROADBAND SPECIFIC TERMS OF SUPPLY

2.1.
We use reasonable endeavours to enable your broadband service for the fastest speed possible however certain factors including condition of line and length will affect what speed is commercially achievable.
2.2.
Where reasonably possible in relation to xDSL services, lines will be provisioned on application service and will require a suitable xDSL router.
2.3.
We cannot guarantee the reliability of the service due to Events Outside of Our Control as explained further in our Website Terms and Conditions of Supply (link).
2.4.
Where there is a fault, we will endeavour to raise this with our suppliers who then aim to respond/resolve within the following time scales: 40 hours for Standard Care, 20 hours for Enhanced Care and 50 hours for Vodafone.
2.5.
There is no uptime service level agreement (SLA) offered on standard xDSL services. Whilst we use reasonable commercial endeavours to maintain service levels, we cannot guarantee the Broadband Services will always work. This is due to the nature of the internet, as well as third party service providers.
2.6.
From time to time work or changes may be required in respect of the line to aid stability or other functionality, in preference of speed due to line conditions.
2.7.
For services moved to a fully unbundled supplier, it is your responsibility to contact us to give notice to end your service.
2.8.
Notwithstanding 2.7 above, should you wish to migrate your broadband services to an alternative provider, the gaining provider shall initiate the migration at which point we will be notified and will contact you. You will be advised about your required notice period, as well as provided with a pro-rata invoice for that time. If you are within any fixed term, an invoice for the remainder of the agreed fixed term shall be raised.
2.9.
We will terminate the provision of broadband services where we have not received payment for a period of 14 days or more or we have been unable to contact the account holder via phone, text message or email. Standard cease fees will be applicable in line with the service agreed and these charges are set out in our Price List (link).
2.10.
You must maintain an active phone line for us to deliver broadband to you. If you or your supplier cancels your phone line, your broadband will cease and the cease fee (link) will be payable. Broadband cannot be delivered to you without a phone service. Any notice period or minimum term remaining on your broadband contract will become immediately due in full should your phone line be suspended or terminated.
2.11.
Lead times, and any other timescales, provided by us for service provision are estimates only and time shall not be of the essence except for payment of sums due to us.
