SERVICE. Laurel DSL will provide you with dedicated access to the Internet, subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein (the "Service"). Speeds on the various plans will vary depending on many factors, including but not limited to distance from the local service provider's central office, internet congestion, upload and download speed of your destination server. Service is provided in conjunction with a circuit provider, which may be your local phone company. The circuit provider retains the right to cancel the service before or after installation at their sole discretion at any time. Although pre-qualification provides a good measure of certainty regarding service availability, it is not a guarantee of service. We recommend waiting until service is installed and tested for a few weeks before assuming that service will be available and of good quality.
PROVIDERS. The application of certain terms herein vary depending on whether the phone line or circuit for a Subscriber is AT&T (an "AT&T Subscriber"), Verizon (a "Verizon Subscriber"), or Covad (a "Covad Subscriber"). Laurel DSL breaks out each phone line or circuit for a Subscriber by Networks. A Subscriber in "Network 1" or "Network 2" is a AT&T Subscriber, a Subscriber in "Network 3" or "Network 8" is a Verizon Subscriber, a Subscriber in "Network 4" is a Covad Subscriber, a Subscriber in "Network 6" is a Qwest Subscriber, and a Subscriber in "Network 13" is a Bell Canada Subscriber.
SUBSCRIBER INFORMATION. You acknowledge that you are eighteen (18) years of age or older, and you agree that you have the legal authority to enter into this Agreement and affirm that the information you supply to us is correct and complete. You understand that Laurel DSL relies on the information you supply and that providing false or incorrect information may result in Service delays or the suspension or termination of your Service. You agree to promptly notify Laurel DSL whenever your personal or billing information changes, including without limitation, your name, address, telephone number, and credit card number and expiration date, if applicable.
GENERAL PRICING AND FEES. Laurel DSL's prices are shown in the Pricing Schedule and you will be charged based on the Plan and Options you select during the ordering process. A Subscriber who selects a "Month to Month" Plan (a "Monthly Subscriber") will pay the monthly price(s) listed on the Pricing Schedule corresponding to the Plan and Options chosen by such Monthly Subscriber at the time of order. However, such monthly prices are subject at any time to increase to Laurel DSL's then current prices. A Subscriber who selects a "1 Year Contract" Plan (an "Annual Subscriber") will pay the monthly price(s) listed on the Pricing Schedule corresponding to the Plan and Options chosen by such Annual Subscriber at the time of order. Such monthly prices for Annual Subscribers are guaranteed for the initial twelve (12) month Term. Following the initial twelve (12) month Term, an Annual Subscriber will automatically become a Monthly Subscriber and will pay Laurel DSL's then current prices, subject to increase as described above, unless such Subscriber registers for a new "1 Year Contract" Plan at such time, to the extent available. An Annual Subscriber may upgrade or downgrade their DSL Service to a different speed plan during their initial (12) month Term. Any such Annual Subscriber so upgrading or downgrading may, at the time of upgrade or downgrade, select either (a) a "Month to Month" rate, in which case such Subscriber shall continue to be subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement for the remainder of such Subscriber's initial twelve (12) month Term and following such initial Term, such Subscriber will automatically become a Monthly Subscriber and will pay Laurel DSL's then current prices, subject to increase as described above, unless such Subscriber registers for a new "1 Year Contract" Plan at such time, to the extent available or (b) a "1 Year Contract" Plan, in which case such Subscriber's initial twelve (12) month Term shall restart on the date of such upgrade, provided that such Subscriber shall continue to be subject to all of the terms and conditions of this Agreement for the period prior to such upgrade or downgrade. In addition to regular fees set forth in the Pricing Schedule, you agree to pay all other charges, including but not limited to applicable taxes, network usage and surcharges, including charges imposed against Laurel DSL by third party providers that it passes on to you. The taxes and surcharges may vary on a monthly basis; any variations will be reflected in your monthly charge. Texas Residents are also subject to an Internet Tax on all monthly services of eight and three-tenths percent (8.3%) after the first twenty-five dollars ($25.00). Canada residents are subject to any applicable GST, PST or HST taxes. When possible, Laurel DSL will break out such charges on the monthly invoice. You may change your plan speed at any time. A One Hundred seventy-five dollar ($175.00) fee will apply to any Covad Subscriber terminates there circuit before the end of the 1 year minimum term.
SETUP AND ACTIVATION FEES. Upon entering into this Agreement, a non-refundable setup fee may apply to Subscribers.
PAYMENT, LATE FEES AND OTHER CHARGES. There is no money back guarantee for any Services unless specifically written in a special one time promotion. There are no pro-rated refunds for unused time. Unless otherwise stated in the Pricing Schedule, Laurel DSL will invoice Subscribers monthly. Invoices will be on a full calendar month basis. New Subscribers who enter into this Agreement after the first day of any month will be billed on a pro-rated basis for their first month of Service and thereafter on a full calendar month basis. Subscribers agree to pay within twenty (20) days from receipt of an invoice. If a Subscriber does not pay an invoice within such twenty (20) day period, Laurel DSL may deny, discontinue or otherwise suspend such Subscriber's Service until full payment is received. Subscribers are responsible for paying monthly subscription fees while Services are suspended due to non-payment. All accounts suspended for non-payment may be subject to a re-activation fee. Any account which goes into collection status will be transferred to a collection agency and may incur a processing fee and all other applicable fees and charges. Subscribers must pay a service charge on all returned checks, disputed credit cards, and credit card chargebacks. Past due accounts may accrue a monthly charge based on the past due balance.
EQUIPMENT. Laurel DSL will provide a AT&T, Verizon, Covad, Qwest or Bell Canada Subscriber with the free use of a modem. A use tax may be applicable based on your location. Subscriber must return to Laurel DSL the complete modem kit in a useable condition at Subscriber's expense within thirty (30) days of termination of the Service by Subscriber or Laurel DSL. Subscriber must pay a modem fee plus applicable taxes to purchase any modem Subscriber does not return to Laurel DSL in working condition within such thirty (30) day period.
SOFTWARE. In connection with our provision of the Service, we may provide to you, via download, CD, other media, or other delivery method, the use of certain software which is owned by Laurel DSL or its third party licensors, providers and suppliers, and which may be provided free or for a fee, including client and/or network security software (the "Software"). We reserve the right to update or change the Software from time to time and you agree to cooperate in performing such steps as may be necessary to install any updates or upgrades to the Software. You may use the Software only as part of or for use with the Service and for no other purpose. The Software may be accompanied by an end user license agreement from Laurel DSL or a third party. Your use of the Software is governed by the terms of that license agreement and by this Agreement, where applicable. You may not install or use any Software that is accompanied by or includes an end user license agreement unless you first agree to the terms and conditions of the end user license agreement
TERM. This Agreement is effective upon Subscriber's acceptance as provided above and shall continue until terminated by Subscriber or Laurel DSL pursuant to this Agreement. Each Monthly Subscriber is on automatically renewing monthly terms beginning on the first day of each calendar month (or, for the first monthly term, the full or partial month beginning with Subscriber's acceptance as provided above). An Annual Subscriber is on a twelve (12) month term beginning on the day such Subscriber accepts the terms of this Agreement as provided above. An Annual Subscriber who upgrades or downgrades to a "Month to Month" rate during their initial twelve (12) month Term pursuant to section 4, shall continue to be on the same twelve (12) month Term. An Annual Subscriber who upgrades or downgrades to a "1 Year Contract" Plan during their initial twelve (12) month Term pursuant to section 4, shall begin a new initial twelve (12) month Term on the date of such upgrade. Following the initial twelve (12) month Term, an Annual Subscriber will automatically become a Monthly Subscriber.
TERMINATION BY SUBSCRIBER. Subscriber may terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason by providing Laurel DSL with a thirty (30) day written notice in the form of a valid written termination request and paying all fees and other charges accrued or otherwise payable under the terms of this Agreement. Such thirty (30) day period begins on the date on which Laurel DSL receives Subscriber's valid written termination request. A Monthly Subscriber's termination will be effective on the later of (a) the end of last day of the calendar month during which such thirty (30) day period ends (e.g., a valid written termination request received by Laurel DSL any time during January will result in termination effective at the end of February) or (b) the end of last day of the calendar month requested by the Monthly Subscriber. An Annual Subscriber's termination, if received by Laurel DSL at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of their twelve (12) month term, will be effective at the end of such twelve (12) month term, unless such Annual Subscriber requests an earlier date. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section, if Laurel DSL receives a written termination request from a Subscriber, Laurel DSL may, in its sole discretion, terminate this Agreement on a date earlier than the date otherwise prescribed by this section. If this Agreement is terminated prior to the end of an Annual Subscriber's twelve (12) month term, such Annual Subscriber must pay, in addition to all fees and other charges accrued or otherwise payable under the terms of this Agreement, an early termination fee in the amount of two hundred and fifty dollars ($250.00) ("Early Termination Fee"). In the event an Annual Subscriber terminates this Agreement prior to the end of their twelve (12) month term because of a service-related problem not caused by the Subscriber that Laurel DSL has failed to cure after what Laurel DSL determines in its sole discretion to be a reasonable amount of time based on the circumstances, the Subscriber is entitled to a waiver of the Early Termination Fee. For such waiver to apply, the reason for the waiver stated above must have occurred before termination and the Subscriber must report such reason for termination to Laurel DSL in its valid written termination request. Laurel DSL must in turn be given the opportunity to resolve the problem and the Subscriber must be willing to troubleshoot with Laurel DSL as well as be available for and authorize the dispatch of a network provider technician. Laurel DSL does not monitor Subscriber accounts for activity, and absence of activity or cancellation of a Subscriber's telephone number will never constitute a termination request. A written termination request is valid only if it includes your DSL phone number, main username, date you wish the service to be cancelled and the reason for canceling and is submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
TERMINATION BY Laurel DSL. If, in Laurel DSL's sole discretion, (a) a Subscriber is in breach of any of the terms of this Agreement (including but not limited to the Acceptable Use Policy); (b) a Subscriber's use of the Service is prohibited by law or is disruptive to, adversely impacts or causes a malfunction to the Service, Laurel DSL's servers or other equipment, or the use and enjoyment of other users; (c) a Subscriber acts in an abusive or menacing manner when dealing with Laurel DSL's technical support staff, customer service staff or any other Laurel DSL employees or representatives; (d) Laurel DSL receives an order from a court to terminate a Subscriber's Service; or (e) Laurel DSL for any reason ceases to offer the Service, then Laurel DSL at its sole election may terminate or suspend such Subscriber's Service immediately without notice. For a termination in accordance with this paragraph, Subscriber remains liable for all unpaid fees and other charges accrued or otherwise payable under the terms of this Agreement, including without limitation the Early Termination Fee and equipment charges set forth herein, if applicable.
TERMINATED SUBSCRIBER. Laurel DSL, in its sole discretion may refuse to accept a Subscriber's application for renewal or resubscription following a termination or suspension of such Subscriber's use of the Service. If a Subscriber's Service is terminated for any reason, such Subscriber, upon approval by Laurel DSL, may enter into a new Agreement and must pay a new setup or activation fee as provided above. Upon the termination of a Subscriber's use of the Service, Laurel DSL has the right to immediately delete all data, files and other information stored in or for the Subscriber's account without further notice to the Subscriber.
SPEED OF SERVICE. Speed rate depends upon the Subscriber's Plan and line capabilities (e.g., loop length, line condition, gauge of copper wire and Phone Company provisioning). The maximum speed for ADSL is stated under optimal conditions and may vary significantly. Speeds are subject to a 20% overhead (e.g., 768k stated speed = 768k times 80% throughput = 614k actual speed). Minimum speeds are offered for a AT&T Subscriber and are based on the package's listed minimum speed minus 20% overhead (e.g., 384-1500k/128-256k stated speed = 384k times 80% throughput = 307k actual speed.) Actual speeds that fit the 80% of the minimum throughput criteria are considered acceptable. A Verizon, Covad or Qwest Subscriber has no minimum speeds. All Services are provided on an AS IS basis and throughput speeds are not guaranteed.
EASY ISP CHANGE FOR AT&T OR VERIZON SUBSCRIBERS. Completing the AT&T or Verizon ISP change form authorizes AT&T or Verizon to terminate DSL service with your current Internet service provider and further authorizes AT&T or Verizon to establish DSL service with Laurel DSL. Opting to use the ISP change process will reduce or eliminate the amount of downtime that you may experience when switching from your current Internet service provider to Laurel DSL. Most Subscribers experience less than twenty four (24) hours of downtime during this process but overall downtime can be between zero (0) and four (4) business days. You are responsible, and you hold Laurel DSL harmless, for any and all early termination, cancellation or other fees, charges or obligations resulting from your change of Internet service provider.
INSTALLATION. Unless otherwise requested by the Subscriber, the first available installation date will be provided. Any installation date provided to a Subscriber is only an estimate and is no way a guaranteed installation date. Subscribers understand and agree that circumstances may arise which delay a Subscribers estimated installation date and any such delay will not be considered a breach of this Agreement by Laurel DSL. Payment for your initial month's service (and if applicable: setup fees, installation fees, and equipment) must be received prior to your turn-on date in order for your setup instructions and IP information to be released to you. If your payment is not received by your turn-on date, you will be responsible for the service fees even though your IP and setup information has not been provided to you. A Subscriber's computer must be equipped with an Ethernet Network Interface (NIC) card for proper DSL operation. Laurel DSL does not include a PCI NIC card as part of the modem package.
SELF-INSTALLATION. Self-installation allows the Subscriber to install their DSL equipment. This option provides service to the minimum point of entry ("MPOE") of your phone service. Your MPOE is normally located outside your building. Inside wiring and inside wiring repair is not included with this option. If inside wiring or inside wiring repair is required, you must contract with your circuit provider or other professional for such work at your own cost. Faulty inside wiring is not grounds for cancellation of your contract. Multi-line phones, phone systems, alarm system or special phone configuration may require a professional installation or special multi-line phone filters. Laurel DSL does not provide nor is responsible for any special equipment including but not limited to a POTS splitter or multi-line phone filters. A required professional installation, need for special equipment in order to establish a connection or an incompatible phone line or phone system is not grounds for cancellation of your contract.
PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION. Subscribers may request a Professional Installation from Laurel DSL for a one-time fee. If Laurel DSL does not offer a Professional Installation, then it is the Subscriber's responsibility to hire a third party technician.
SUBSCRIBER SUPPLIED MODEM. If a Subscriber supplies their own modem, the Subscriber assumes the risk of service incompatibility. Incompatible Subscriber modems or other Subscriber equipment shall not relieve Subscribers from any of their obligations under this Agreement while troubleshooting defective or incompatible equipment even if Subscriber's Service is down during such periods of troubleshooting.
SUBSCRIBER PREMISE EQUIPMENT. The PPPoE connection will allow one computer to use your DSL connection. Static IP accounts include a DSL bridge which can be used ahead of one computer or router provided by you. Laurel DSL does not provide support for router(s). All packages include basic instructions and support.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT. Laurel DSL assumes that the Subscriber has a basic understanding of their computer. Laurel DSL will not train you in basic computer skills (e.g., deleting files or creating directories). Technical support is intended to facilitate the setup of your properly functioning computer system for access to our services. Your computer must recognize your modem or network card, and receive a dial tone or network link connectivity before any technical support will be dispensed. Our technical support staff is not trained to, has no obligation to and will not assist you in installing and/or troubleshooting modems, network cards, routers, complex network configurations or telephone lines, neither will they provide any technical assistance or support for any third party Software. Laurel DSL is not responsible for connection problems due to a computer that is infected with viruses, spyware or malware. It is the Subscriber's responsibility to initiate and be available for technical support during Laurel DSL's hours of operation. If a Subscriber wishes to utilize Laurel DSL's technical support, the Subscriber must be available to help troubleshoot the connection or computer setup. Laurel DSL does not provide on-site technical support. However phone company technicians may be dispatched to troubleshoot the circuit with a Subscriber's approval. The Subscriber is solely responsible for all charges involved with dispatching a technician to troubleshoot their line. For AT&T Subscribers and Verizon Subscribers, charges are currently sixty dollars ($60.00) per visit or truck roll which includes one-half (1/2) hour of work and thirty-five dollars ($35.00) for each additional one-half (1/2) hour of work. For Covad Subscribers, charges are currently ($175.00) per visit which includes one-half (1/2) hour of work. For Qwest Subscribers, charges are currently ($100.00) per visit which includes one-half (1/2) hour of work. For Bell Canada Subscribers, charges are currently Ninety dollars ($90.00) per visit and are only charged if Bell Canada is deemed not responsible for the repair issue. If Bell Canada is deemed responsible, then no charges will apply. All such charges are subject to change with no prior notice. Subscriber understands and agrees that any such technician or other person dispatched to troubleshoot Subscriber's line is not an employee or agent of Laurel DSL and Laurel DSL is not liable for any damages, costs or expenses relating to or arising from any acts, errors or omissions by any such technician or other person.
MAINTAINING CURRENT TELEPHONE SERVICE. DSL service shares the Subscriber's current telephone line and service. It is the Subscriber's sole responsibility to maintain the phone line and phone number of original installation in continuous working order with the local phone company in order to receive the Services. A Subscriber who disconnects telephone service remains responsible for monthly service fees, Early Termination Fees and all other fees, charges and other obligations provided for in this Agreement. Any change in phone service will result in downtime while service is disconnected or reestablished.
IP ADDRESSES. Each Subscriber is allowed one (1) computer device per IP address. Upon expiration, cancellation or termination of this Agreement, a Subscriber must relinquish any IP addresses or address blocks assigned to them by Laurel DSL. Laurel DSL may choose to assign any Subscriber a new IP address at any time.
ACCEPTABLE USE. Subscriber agrees to use the DSL Service in accordance with Laurel DSL's acceptable use policy ("Acceptable Use Policy") published at http://www.laureldsl.com/. Laurel DSL reserves the right to make changes to the Acceptable Use Policy without notice.
