SERVICE PLAN TERMS AND CONDITIONS
By clicking “I agree” and placing an order you are agreeing to purchase your selected service plan (your “Service Plan”). You are also indicating that you have read and agree to the following terms and conditions and agree to any other terms and conditions on our website.
1. PRICE AND PAYMENT
You agree to pay Axia FibreNet, a Bell Canada company, (“Axia”, “us”, “we”, “our” and the like) the activation fees (if any), monthly recurring fees, and any other fees and charges related to your Service Plan (including any changes or termination of your Service Plan) identified by us from time to time plus applicable taxes. We will charge your credit card commencing on the Service Date (as defined below), monthly in advance for recurring charges for the remainder of your Service Plan, as well as for any other fees and charges that may become payable from time to time. You authorize us and any third party that processes payments on our behalf to use your credit card and retain your credit card and payment information for any outstanding balances and you waive pre-notification of the amounts and dates of the charges to your credit card. If we are unable to charge your credit card after 30 days past the payment date, we will terminate your Service Plan. This termination does not release you from your responsibility to pay the fees for the Service Plan or a Cancellation Fee, if applicable.
If you have agreed to pay by pre-authorized debit (PAD): you authorize us, and the financial institution designated (or any other financial institution we may authorize at any time) to debit your specified account commencing on the Service Date (as defined below) and thereafter monthly on the same day of the month as the Service Date (or on the last day of the month) in each following month, in advance for recurring charges for the remainder of your Service Plan, as well as for any other fees and charges that may become payable from time to time. You authorize us, any such financial institution and any third party that processes payments on our behalf, to debit your specified account in such manner and retain your account information for any outstanding balances. You waive your right to receive pre-notification of any change in the amount of the PAD (including any change resulting from an upgrade to your Service Plan or payment of any cancellation fee) or any change in the day or dates of the month on which such PAD is processed. If we are unable to debit your account within 30 days past the payment date, we will terminate your Service Plan. This termination does not release you from your responsibility to pay the fees for the Service Plan or a Cancellation Fee, if applicable. This authority is to remain in effect until we have received written notification from you of its change or termination. This notification must be received by us at least 20 business days before the next debit is scheduled at the address for Notices provided in Section 8 below. You may obtain a sample cancellation form, or more information on your right to cancel this PAD agreement at your financial institution or visit www.payments.ca. You have certain recourse rights if any debit does not comply with this agreement. For example, you have the right to receive reimbursement for any PAD that is not authorized or is not consistent with this PAD agreement. To obtain more information on your recourse rights, you may contact your financial institution or visit www.payments.ca.
2. INSTALLATION; SPECIFICATIONS
We will contact you or provide an online scheduling tool to arrange an installation time. You authorize us to install fibre on your property and to install a device (the “Box”) in your home or business. We own the Box and the fibre and we may change it if we want to or need to in order to provide you with your Service Plan. You can connect your equipment to the Box but you cannot make any other connections to the fibre we have installed for you or tamper with it in any way. If you break the Box or damage the fibre, intentionally or not, we have the right to charge you for another Box or to fix the fibre.
The Box’s specifications are below (or are otherwise provided by Axia) (“Box Specifications”):
Dimensions: 3.8 cm H x 25.4 cm W x 15.2 cm D
• Temperature: 0°C - +40°C.
• Humidity: 5 ~ 90% relative humidity.
• To ensure adequate ventilation, nothing should be placed on the top of the Box.
• 100-240 VAC 50/60 Hz.
• Max Power: 15W.
3. DURATION OF AND CHANGES TO SERVICES
Your Service Plan will start on the day when it is installed and ready for use in your home or business (the “Service Date”) and will continue for the term you selected. When your term ends, your Service Plan will continue automatically on a month-to-month basis; the current fees and Service Plan Terms and Conditions will apply.
You can increase (upgrade), decrease (downgrade) or cancel the bandwidth service selected in your Service Plan by notifying us of the change (the “Request”) in which case the terms and conditions provided below will apply. A Request for an upgrade or downgrade will trigger the termination of your existing Service Plan and the creation of a new Service Plan reflecting the revised bandwidth amount, pricing and new term.
Upgrades: A Request for an upgrade can be submitted at any time and will usually be completed within five business days of receipt of the Request. You will not be charged an activation fee for an upgrade. Any prorated credits for the remainder of the month of lower bandwidth will be applied to the first payment for the upgraded Service Plan.
Downgrades: The deadline for the submission of a Request for a downgrade is no later than 10 days prior to the monthly bill date of your service (the “Downgrade Deadline”). We will downgrade your services on the monthly bill date of your Service immediately following the submission of the Request, if it is provided by the Downgrade Deadline. If the Request is not submitted by the Downgrade Deadline, then the downgrade of services will take place on the next monthly bill date of your service. You will be charged an activation fee for a downgrade. You will not be eligible for any promotions unless the downgrade Request is made during a month-to-month term.
Moves: A Request for a move, within an Axia coverage zone, can be submitted at any time via the “Order New Service” option in My Account. By submitting a Request for a move, you are ordering a new Service Plan for your new location (“New Plan”) and terminating the former Service Plan (“Old Plan”). Termination of the Old Plan will take effect as of the Service Date for the New Plan. In this instance, the Cancellation Fee set out below will not apply. However, you will be charged an activation fee for the New Plan. Please note that a Request for a move outside of Axia’s coverage area will be treated as a Cancellation, as described below.
Cancellation: A Cancellation Fee (as set out below) will apply when a Request for the termination of your Service Plan is submitted. We will stop billing for Services on the day we receive your cancellation request. We will disconnect your service within 5 business days of the request for cancellation. For clarity, cancellation during a month-to-month term will not result in a Cancellation Fee but the same notice and disconnection timelines apply. You are responsible for returning The Box to Axia when you cancel your service.
Cancellation Fee: YOU AGREE TO PAY US ALL FEES DUE FOR THE TERMINATED SERVICE PLAN UNTIL THE DATE OF TERMINATION. YOU AGREE TO PAY A CANCELLATION FEE EQUAL TO 50% OF THE REMAINING MONTHLY RECURRING CHARGES UNTIL THE END OF THE TERM OF YOUR SERVICE PLAN. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THIS CANCELLATION FEE IS TO COMPENSATE US FOR COSTS INCURRED AS A RESULT OF EARLY TERMINATION AND IS NOT A PENALTY.
