The Connect Service is not a telecommunications service and we provide it on a best effort basis. Important distinctions exist between telecommunications service and the Connect Service offering that we provide. The Service is subject to different regulatory treatment than telecommunications service. This treatment may limit or otherwise affect Customer rights of redress before regulatory agencies.
Connect Service and Coverage is offered on a monthly or multi-month basis as is determined in this SOW. The term begins on the date that Continuant activates Customer Connect Service and ends on the day before the anniversary date of Customer Term. Subsequent terms of this Agreement automatically renew on a monthly basis unless Customer give us written notice of non-renewal at least thirty (30) days before the end of the monthly term in which the notice is given. Customer is purchasing the Service for full monthly terms, meaning that if Customer attempts to terminate Service prior to the end of a monthly term, Customer will be responsible for the full month’s charges to the end of the then-current term, including, without limitation, unbilled charges, plus a termination fee, if applicable, all of which will immediately become due and payable. Customer will also be responsible for the next full month’s charges in the event that Customer does not provide the requisite thirty-days’ notice of termination prior to the expiration of the then-current term. Expiration of the term or termination of Service will not excuse Customer from paying all accrued and unpaid charges due under this Agreement.
Upon the termination of Customer Service, we may, in our sole and absolute discretion, release to Customer new service provider the telephone number that Customer ported (transferred or moved over) to us from Customer previous service provider and used in connection with Customer Service if:
Continuant requires all phone numbers to remain on our network for at least 1 month before they can be ported out. Customer may be charged a termination fee of $19.99 per standard phone number and at our sole and absolute discretion, up to $500.00 per vanity number if Customer service is terminated for any reason during the Term following the activation of Customer Service.
