2. YOUR RIGHT TO CANCEL.
You have the right to cancel this agreement at any time from the date you sign the customer agreement until we commence provision of the services by writing or by sending a fax to us.

You acknowledge that if you cancel the order in this way we may recover the amount of any subsidy from you unless we are able to recover it from any dealer.

These include but are not limited to: the capability of the equipment: the number of people using the network: geographic or atmospheric conditions; maintenance requirements or equipment failures. Any coverage maps are a best estimate, but not a guarantee of coverage.
b) We may at any time set a limit on an amount of services charges you incur during each billing period or place a bar on the SIM card being used on overseas networks or for making international calls or premium rate calls. If you want to vary any such limit or release any such bar you should contact us. You acknowledge that we may undertake credit checks to determine your creditworthiness and that we may refuse to vary any such limit or release any such bar.

The deposit will not exceed more than 3 months service charges calculated by reference to your actual usage of the services or, if you have not used the services for at least 3 months, on the basis of the information you gave to the dealer when purchasing the equipment. Any deposit paid by you will be repaid when this agreement ends or earlier if we agree (but we may in these circumstances reinstate any bar or limit).
d) Due to the investment that Zero Seven Telecom makes in providing commission and/or hardware at point of connection, we reserve the right to enforce a minimum average spend target per account of £45.

Invoices not paid by 30 days from date of invoice will incur a £10 late payment fee which will be applied to the next monthly invoice.

This agreement covers the provision by Zero Seven Telecom (07) to you of our telecommunication services. We may vary these Terms and Conditions at our discretion and at any time by giving you not less than 90 calendar day’s written notice in advance inclusive of the date of posting. If you have subscribed to 07 Broadband, a separate agreement covers these terms.
2. HOW WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES TO YOU
07 provides services via WLR and, for telephones lines with 07 broadband, Next Generation Networks (NGN). WLR means that 07 will bill you for line rental of your BT line and BT Openreach will continue to maintain your line and fix any faults that may occur. Developments in network technology (known as Local Loop Unbundling or “LLU”) may enable us to provide fixed line with broadband service to you through Next Generation Networks. If you have previously agreed to take our WLR service we may transfer you to our LLU network but we will still offer the same services to you as those which you received from us before the transfer. If a Next Generation Network is available to you at the time of your transfer to 07 Telecom, we may transfer you directly to this network. In all circumstances your phone line from the exchange to your premises will continue to be maintained and repaired by BT Openreach.
You acknowledge that in order to avoid delays occurring in the ordering process, 07 will need to be notified by BT of any products or services presently in use on your line that are incompatible with the WLR or NGN service. BT or other network providers are under a strict duty not to disclose information about a customer’s telephone services to a third party unless the customer has consented to such disclosure. In entering into this agreement you give consent to BT or other network providers to disclose such information to 07. You also give 07 authority to act as your agent to arrange connection onto 07 services. If 07 is unable to take over the billing of your line rental, for whatever reason, you hereby authorise us to carry your phone calls only through CPS (see below).
3. CARRIER PRE-SELECTION (CPS)
CPS is the routing of your calls through a carrier other than BT. Your phone line(s) are still maintained by Openreach engineers but the calls are carried on another network. We may select and at any time change any carrier or other service provider for the purposes of providing CPS. You hereby irrevocably authorise us to give all notices, nominations and other authorisations necessary for us to provide the CPS service.
This agreement will have the duration specified on the contract, which was included with your application confirmation letter and will be automatically renewed at the end of the period unless and until either of us gives the other written notice of termination at least 90 days before the relevant anniversary. The agreement may be ended immediately by you if we break a term of this agreement, which after written notice has not been rectified within 14 days. If we have given you at least 90 days notice at any time varying these Terms and Conditions (excluding variations to charges, payments or prices) and you consequently do not wish to continue our services, then before our notice of variation expires you may give us 14 days written notice to terminate this agreement but to ensure continuity time will be of the essence for your notice to be received by us and if we have not received your notice within that time, this agreement will continue on these terms as varied. Either of us may end this agreement without notice if the other stops trading or becomes insolvent or wound up. We may end this agreement without giving you notice if you break any of your obligations under clause 6 & 8. On termination of this agreement for whatever reason, you will:
a. Immediately pay any outstanding invoices.
b. Be responsible for any required engineering reprogramming costs for you to use an alternative supplier. In addition, if you terminate this agreement prior to the end of the period specified on the application form and after your account has been provisioned (except if you terminate, in accordance with the provisions of this agreement, as a result of our breach or insolvency or winding up), you will:
c. Reimburse 07 for any costs incurred in releasing you from your contractual obligations with BT or any other network provider prior to transferring you to the 07 service (if applicable).
d. Pay us (in addition to clauses 4a and 4b) your monthly line rental in advance up to the end of your contractual agreement date or a minimum disconnection fee of £199 + VAT should you terminate your contract within 3 calendar months of your legal termination date.

a. Charges are calculated from data recorded by us and not from your own records.
b. Where a direct debit is unpaid due to insufficient funds or cancellation, a £6.84 administration charge will be included on your next monthly bill.

If, during the first 12months of this agreement, we are forced to increase our call charges to an extent greater than the increase in the Retail Price Index for the relevant period, you may end this agreement without paying the disconnection fee and transfer to your chosen provider. 07 charges are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate (currently 17.5%).
