Terms and Conditions
These terms and conditions may change from time to time. Consumer Terms and Conditions also apply.
1.1 If you sign up for any Home Service with us, these terms and conditions will apply in addition to the Consumer Terms and Conditions. Other terms and conditions may also apply to the Home Services you choose, including Plan and offer terms and conditions.
2.1 Fixed Term: If you have signed up for a fixed contract term, you agree to receive the Home Service(s) for at least the length of that fixed period. After the fixed period, we will provide the Home Service(s) to you on a month by month basis until they are cancelled in accordance with this Agreement. You agree to pay an early termination charge or transfer fee if you terminate Home Service(s), change to another Plan, or sign up for a new fixed term on your current Plan before the end of the fixed term you have agreed with us. Your fixed contract term will start from the date your Home Service is connected or otherwise made available to you.
2.2 Open Term: If you have not signed up for a fixed contract term, we will provide the Home Services to you on a month by month basis until they are cancelled in accordance with this Agreement.
3. Service availability:
3.1 Not all Home Services are available to all customers in all areas.
3.2 Sometimes we may need to temporarily suspend a Home Service so that we or our suppliers (including a LFC) can carry out maintenance and development work on the Network. We will always try to minimise any disruption to you (except in an emergency where this may not be practicable).
3.3 Some Home Services require power to operate and will not work during a power failure. If you cannot use the Home Services, you will not be able to make any telephone calls including to Emergency 111 services. You may also need to make alternative arrangements if you have a monitored alarm or other legacy device (e.g. a facsimile machine, analogue EFTPOS machine, etc).
4. Broadband Services:
4.1 Our control of data speeds is limited to our own Network.
4.2 Our policy is to provide you with the best broadband experience possible, so we won’t slow down or throttle your connection. However, in some circumstances (such as in the unlikely event of a network attack) we may be required to take reasonable action to protect our customers and effectively manage our network.
4.3 The statements made about the Broadband speed are not guarantees about continuous speed. Where a download or upload speed is specified, the Broadband Services are capable of burstable speeds up to the speed stated.
4.4 Where a download or upload speed is described as “maximum”, you will receive the highest speed your Broadband connection can deliver. The actual speed your Broadband connection can achieve may depend on a number of things including the condition of your line, the distance from the exchange, the equipment you use (including your computer), the time of day you are connecting, and the Internet use by others connected to the Network at the same time as you.
4.5 All traffic, both upload and download, will be counted toward your data usage.
4.6 We are free to choose how we provide a Home Service and the technology used to provide it.
4.7 Unlimited Broadband Data is to be used for standard residential use only and is not to be used for commercial types of activity or purposes. Non-residential, commercial purposes will include (but is not limited to) selling bandwidth to third parties or running an Internet Service Provider.

5.2 You agree to be bound by your LFC’s end user terms as their network is used to provide the Broadband Services to you. The current LFC End User Terms can be found at:
6. Fixed Line:
6.1 Where a call is not a local call, there is a one minute minimum charge for home phone calls. All calls are rounded up and charged by the minute (e.g. if your call was for 1 minute and 40 second, you will be charged for 2 minutes).
6.2 If you call a 0900 or special number you will be charged the rate as published by the telecommunications service provider of that phone number, plus for special numbers, your normal calling rate.
6.3 Each call is charged at the rate which is applicable when the call starts.
