Terms & Conditions of Business

The agreement is made between GGB Ltd (we) and The Customer (you) for the supply of broadband internet services.

THE SERVICE

The service provides you with broadband access to the internet and is provided via the wireless network operated by us to your premises, being a single postal address, through equipment owned by you.  We will use reasonable skill and care to ensure that the service is continuously available to you.  There will be occasions when the network will be unavailable due to maintenance or technical failure.  We will give you reasonable notice of planned maintenance periods and we will use our reasonable endeavours to minimise the duration of unexpected network unavailability.
We undertake to provide the network service to an agreed point at your premises.  As part of our installation service, we will make sure that your equipment is successfully connected. Thereafter, maintenance of your equipment is your responsibility.

CONTRACT COMMENCEMENT, DURATION AND TERMINATION

The contract commences on the date of first connection between your equipment and our network.  The initial contract is for a minimum period of 12 months.  During your contracted period you will be eligible to subscription package improvements offered by GGB.  After this period you will be invited to renew your contract for another 12 months with these improvements. If you decide not to renew your contract but go onto a ‘rolling’ month by month contract, GGB reserves the right to return your package to the one most recently signed up for.  The contract continues until terminated by either party giving one month’s notice.   We may terminate this agreement immediately for breach of the terms contained in it by you.  You may terminate the agreement if we fail to provide the promised service.

 

OWNERSHIP OF EQUIPMENT
