TERMS OF SERVICE

Promise To Pay - Service will be provided by VARCOMM Broadband, Inc., (“VARCOMM)” and invoiced in advance on Customer’s monthly by Ducor Telephone Company bill. Payment is due upon receipt of invoice. Company reserves the right without further notice to suspend or terminate Customer’s account and service if Customer’s account is unpaid for 15 days after date of invoice. Such suspension or termination of service does not relieve Customer of the obligation to pay all of Customer’s account charges. A written request from the Customer, given to Company, with 15 day notice is required to terminate service. In the event of account delinquency, Customer agrees to pay Company reasonable expenses, including attorney and collection agency fees incurred in enforcing its rights under this Agreement.

 

Changes in Terms - VARCOMM may change the Terms of Service (including Rates) on not less than ten days written notice by email or by Unites States mail or by posting notifications on www.VARCOMM.net. Your use of VARCOMM’s broadband service after the effective date of any change in the Terms shall constitute your acceptance of and agreement to such change

 

Charges, Billing, and Payment:

Rates – Current rates for broadband service can be found at www.varcomm.net or by calling 888-539-5234. 

 

Billing – VARCOMM will bill you monthly. The fixed monthly rate is payable in advance, on or before the first day of VARCOMM monthly billing cycle. Usage charges, if any, are billed in arrears.

 

Billing Disputes – Unless you notify VARCOMM of an error in VARCOMM’s billing within Sixty (60) days after it first appears on your account statement, the statement will be deemed accepted and waived by you for all purposes. You release VARCOMM from all liabilities and claims resulting from any billing error not reported to VARCOMM within sixty (60) days after the date of the statement on which it appears.

Late Payment or Non-Payment – If VARCOMM does not receive the full amount you owe for VARCOMM broadband service and related fees within fifteen (15) days after the date of VARCOMM’s statement, you shall owe VARCOMM interest at the rate of 1.5% (or the highest amount allowed by law, whichever is less) per month on the outstanding balance until paid in full. Any fees, charges, and assessments due to late payment or nonpayment are liquidated damages intended to be a reasonable advance estimate of our costs resulting from late payments and non-payments. These costs will be difficult to calculate or to predict when we set such fees, charges, and assessments, because we cannot know in advance: (a) whether you will pay for the broadband service on a timely basis, if ever; (b) if you do pay late, when you will actually pay; and (c) what costs we will incur because of your late payment or non-payment. You shall also be liable for all costs of collecting any unpaid balance on your internet service account(s) with VARCOMM, including any collection agency’s fees, attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.

Suspension/Disconnect – If any amount remains unpaid for more than thirty (30) days, VARCOMM shall have the right in its sole discretion in accordance with and subject to applicable law to terminate, suspend, or disconnect your VARCOMM broadband service.

Credit verification may include a review of credit reports received from any commercially available credit bureau. You agree to provide VARCOMM with such personal information as may be required by VARCOMM in order to determine your creditworthiness and you represent and warrant that all of such information is true and correct. You acknowledge that credit privileges, if granted, may be withdrawn at any time in VARCOMM’s sole discretion.
