4. Fixed Line Broadband Services

4.1 Speed: Statements about the speed of your Fixed Line Broadband Service are based on theoretical maximums and are not guarantees of continuous speed. The actual speed that your broadband connection can achieve will depend on a number of factors which may include: your equipment (including your computer and Wi-Fi capability); your internal and external premises wiring; your Access Type; the distance of your premises from the exchange; New Zealand and overseas networks; internet traffic congestion; other environmental factors; how many other people are using it at the time. In really good conditions on Office Net Max, we expect you’ll get download speeds of 700-900Mbps and upload speeds of 400-450 Mbps.

4.3 Tuning: changes in the environment impacting on our network and your premises can alter the electrical interference encountered, and cause unwelcome error rates or even instability. Because of this, we may tune your Fixed Line Broadband Service on a regular basis. The speed and performance of your Fixed Line Broadband Service may change as a result of these environmental changes and our tuning of the Service.

5. Equipment

5.1 We will supply you with a router. This router holds secure configuration information required for your Fixed line calling VoIP service to work with our Network. The Fixed line calling VoIP service will not work with another router. This router remains our Equipment and must be returned at the end of the term. We may charge you for this Equipment if it is not returned.
