We only operate in the UK. Our website and marketing material is solely for the promotion of the service in the UK. Provision of service and Box Broadband equipment. When our network is live past your premises it is likely we can provide the service to you. We will contact you to arrange for one of our approved network installers to install and configure the customer premise equipment (‘CPE’) based on your service requirements, at a time which suits you. The team will have your contact details so that they can let you know when they will arrive, or to deal with any unexpected problems or delays. You are responsible for procuring all necessary consents and permissions required in order for us to connect and maintain the CPE at your premises. We may only install CPE where such permissions and consents have been fully granted and we may ask you for a copy of these permissions and consents before any installation is undertaken. You will allow the installation team to access your premises as arranged in order to install the CPE which requires a standard power socket to plug into. We aim to locate the CPE where you prefer but sometimes this is not possible. In such circumstances, we will discuss with you a suitable alternative location for the CPE. If for any reason you wish to move the location of the CPE, please contact us to discuss your requirements and we can arrange a visit. We are not responsible for any electricity charges incurred as a result of use of the CPE. Non-standard installations. Sometimes an installation will have specific requirements because of the length of the access route or unusual surfaces to dig through, or the size of premises, each which may require additional CPE and/or special techniques to dig and reinstate). This is classed as a non-standard installation and will fall outside the scope of our standard installation terms and charges. In such circumstances, we will carry out a site survey and prepare a written estimate of the installation cost. We will discuss the installation cost with you before the installation commences. If you agree to go ahead with the installation, the installation charges will be confirmed to you in writing and once the network is installed then our service can be delivered to you according to the Order Confirmation. The agreed installation charge will be taken as part of your first monthly payment. Risk assessment. Before commencing installation works the network installer (who will be a Box Broadband employee or subcontractor) will carry out a risk assessment. If the network installer determines that it is not possible to carry out the installation safely, you will be informed and given the opportunity to make any necessary changes to the premises. Changes to your requirements. Please note that if you change your requirements in relation to the service, this may affect your eligibility for a standard installation. If there has been an error in assessing the criteria for the installation of the service, which means you do not qualify for standard installation, the network installer will inform us and we will discuss and agree with you how we may be able to proceed and the charges which may apply. Installation on agreed date. The network installer will do everything possible to achieve the installation at the arranged time, but if it is not possible to continue with the installation because of, without limitation, health and safety issues, the complexity of the installation or the materials required, the network installer will inform us and will ask you to agree to a further appointment to carry out the installation. Activation. Once the service is successfully installed we will activate the service which means you are able to use it. As soon as we have activated the service, you will be liable for a one-off installation charge, and our monthly recurring charges will start to apply, as shown on the Order Confirmation. Our charges and your payments How we calculate our monthly charges. The amount you pay for the service depends on the level of service you have ordered and is shown as a monthly amount, in addition to the VAT owed on your Order Confirmation, such monthly amount is payable in arrears. Payments must be made by direct debit and within seven (7) days from the date of the invoice (‘due date’). Your first payment will also include the installation charge and, where applicable, charges for non-standard installations. Payments will be due monthly thereafter for the Minimum Term, and as applicable, thereafter. Price changes. We may review the charges at any time but any changes in the charges will not apply to contracts which are still within the Minimum Term. If the charges do change after expiry of the Minimum Term, we will give you at least 30 days’ advance notice and you will have seven (7) days from the date of such notice to terminate the contract if you do not agree to the changes. Upgrades. If you decide to change or upgrade the service, we will tell you what your new monthly charges will be and ask you to confirm acceptance of those charges in writing. Any Minimum Term and new monthly charges which apply to your new service will re-commence when we confirm your new order and the upgraded service is ready for you to use. We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order date and the date we activate the service or during the time we supply the service to you, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay and show this on your invoice and you will be responsible for this. Third party charges. We are not responsible or liable for any charges from your service providers or organisations (such as telephone or content providers) which you may incur while using the service If you do not pay.

Payments must be made by direct debit. Your first payment will include the Activation Fee (if any) and, where applicable, charges for non-standard installations.
Minimum Term

Changes and Upgrades
If you decide to change or upgrade your service, we will tell you what your new monthly charges will be and ask you to confirm acceptance. Any Minimum Term which applies to your new service will commence when we confirm your new order.
VAT rates
If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the Activation Date, or during the time we are supplying services to you, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay and show this on your bill. We are not responsible or liable for any charges from service providers or organisations (such
as telephone or content providers) which you may incur while using the services.

Late payment interest
If you do not make any payment to us by the due date, we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Barclays Bank from time to time.

If you end your contract during the Minimum Term (other than where you have a right to cancel) then we may charge you an Early Termination Fee up to the amount of the remaining charges for the Minimum Term. If you give us 1 months’ notice to end the contract at the end of the Minimum Term, then no Early Termination Charge will apply.
Payment of Early Termination Charge
We may charge this amount directly to your next bill. By entering into this contract, you are authorising us to do this. We will give you reasonable notice in writing before making these charges. For further information about Early Termination Charges, please contact us.
Ending the contract after the Minimum Term
If we are not at fault and none of the reasons listed in these terms apply, you must give us 1 months’ notice. The contract will not end until 1 calendar month after the day on which you contact us. For example, if you tell us you want to end the contract on 4 February we will continue to supply the service until 3 March. We will only charge you for supplying the service up to 3 March and will refund any sums you have paid in advance for the supply of the service after 3 March.

Voice services

Box Broadband voice services are only available with a Box Broadband service. Your phone handset will plug into our router using the same connector that you have on your existing standard telephone.
When your phone service is live (either via porting your existing number or us providing you with a new number) you will be notified by our provisioning team and at this point you can plug your phone handset into the phone socket on the back of the router. Our technicians will explain how to do this. If you have any questions or concerns with the phone service, please contact Box Broadband on 0330 113 0180 immediately using your mobile and we will test the line for you. At the point when all services are up and running (phone and broadband) we will confirm that you may cancel your existing phone service provider contract.
Phone fees and rates
Fees and rates that apply can be viewed in our tariff guide on www.boxbroadband.co.uk. The Box Broadband monthly phone service charge is inclusive of UK landline and mobile phone calls. Call tariffs for all other destinations and premium rate numbers (including numbers starting 08, 09, 0701, 0702) are available on our website.
If you use our phone services excessively above that of a normal domestic phone user, we may contact you to discuss your phone usage requirements and reserve the right to restrict, suspend or end your services. Or we may charge you our standard rates as published on our website.
Call features and services functionality are subject to variation and may not be available in all areas.
If you use any security, personal alarms or health monitors, please check with your providers to ensure that your alarm or monitor is compatible.
Your voice services are provided over our broadband network. You should keep your broadband router plugged in and switched on at all times to be able to make and receive calls. You acknowledge that in the event of a power or network outage, your phone services will not work and you will not be able to make or receive calls, including calls to emergency services. We recommend that you consider purchasing an external battery unit to power your router in such circumstances. Alternatively, please keep a mobile phone charged and to hand in order to call emergency services if needed. Similarly, any security or personal alarms, or health monitors will not work if there is a power or network outage. Please check with your alarm or monitor provider for guidance. Any other equipment you connect to your phone line may also not work in an outage. Box Broadband Limited will not be liable for any failure of any system associated with security, health monitoring or alarms, or any other such systems, due to incompatibility with our network, power outage or any other matter beyond our control or not arising out of a fault of ours.
If you keep your existing phone number and take a phone line from us as part of the services, you authorise us to cancel that part of your agreement with your old voice provider. Please note, whilst we are usually able to arrange for you to keep your existing phone number when transferring your line to us, we cannot guarantee this.
If you do not wish to keep your existing phone number but are taking a phone line from Box Broadband, we will allocate a number to your phone line. Please note, that the phone number and any rights in it belong to Box Broadband and you may not sell it or agree to transfer the number to anyone.
You agree that we will provide your phone number and address to the emergency services. Unless you state otherwise, we will also provide these details and your name to other authorised public communications providers and regulated directory service providers in order for your details to be added to phone books and other similar service providers.

Broadband

We will provide you with a Box Broadband wireless router in order to use our services. The router remains our property and must be returned to us at the end of service. On installation our technician will power up the router and test for internet connectivity.
Our standard fix time
The fix time for faults on our network is the next working day unless you select our Box Support Plus (4) which provides a 4 hour fix time from receipt by us of your notification of a network outage within our standard support times (8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday).
Our commitment to you
We aim to provide you with continued service, however we will not be liable for service problems due to events arising out of control.
Occasionally Box Broadband will need to carry out maintenance or upgrade works on the network which will be done at times during the night to minimise service disruption. Where possible, we will provide advance email notification when such work will be carried and details provided on our status update page on the website.
Due to the nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee specific levels of performance for internet access to sites outside of our network.
If you wish to change to a higher bandwidth service, please contact our sales department at sales@boxbb.co.uk or ring us on 0330 113 0180.
You agree to comply with our Box Broadband Acceptable Use Policy which can be found on our website.
