5. Constant Connection Abuse & Excessive Use.
5.1.1 We reserve the right to disconnect you after approximately 30 minutes of inactivity or after approximately 6 hours of continual use.

All Users of the Service are responsible for configuring their own systems to provide the maximum possible accountability. For example, you should ensure that there are clear “path” lines in news headers so that the originator of a post may be identified. You should also configure their Mail Transport Agents (MTA) to authenticate (by look-up on the name or similar procedures) any system that connects to perform a mail exchange, and should generally present header data as clearly as possible. As another example, you should maintain logs of dynamically assigned IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. You are responsible for all phone company charges that you incur including any charges for calling long distance to one of the Service’s Points of Presence (“POP”). All POP telephone numbers should be confirmed as a local call before being committed to any system settings.
7.1.1 You are prohibited from engaging in improper use or distribution of electronic mail (“e-mail”) over the Internet. Without limitation of the foregoing, it is a violation of this Policy and you are strictly prohibited from engaging in any of the following activities:
7.1.2 Sending unsolicited bulk e-mail (“UBE”, or “spamming”). This includes, but is not limited to, the distribution of UBE for commercial, informational, advertising, political, or religious purposes.
7.1.3 Setting up “mailback” or “drop box” addresses in order to receive responses from UBE, either directly by the user or by a third party on behalf of the user.
7.1.4 Using a mail transport agent (MTA) outside of your own site to relay mail (unless you have received express permission to do so). Even if permission has been received, you are prohibited from forging identities to make it appear as though the e-mail sourced from the relay.
7.1.5 Sending UBE, or posting news, to advertise or promote resources whose connectivity depends in any way on the Service, regardless of whether such UBE or news posting is made using the Service. For example, using another ISP’s services to send UBE, which advertises a web page, hosted by or via the Service is prohibited.
7.1.6 Hiring or using any third party service for the purpose of distributing UBE or excessively “multi-posting” or “cross-posting” any Usenet posting in the name of a User. You will be held responsible for the actions of any third party agent that acts on your behalf or for your benefit, and shall be held directly accountable for any violations of this Policy by such third party agent.
7.1.7 You are strictly prohibited from sending out any bulk and/or unsolicited e-mail, commercial or otherwise (spamming). Bulk e-mail is defined as identical or similar e-mail messages sent to 25 or more recipients. Spamming is defined as solicitation e-mail messages sent to recipients who have not specifically requested materials to be sent to them. Any violation of this policy may result in the immediate termination of your account, at our sole discretion. If you violate this spamming policy, you may be assessed the following fines and penalties, which you hereby agree to pay:
· First offense: $100.00 or possible termination of your account
· Second offense: $500.00 or possible termination of your account
· Third offense: $500.00 and automatic termination of your account.
7.1.8 Bulk e-mail may be sent only to recipients who have expressly requested receipt of such e-mail. Users that send solicited bulk e-mail are required to maintain records of all bulk e-mail subscription requests, and to provide us with such records upon our request, to enable us to investigate complaints from third parties. The sender of any solicited bulk e-mail shall, upon the request of a recipient, immediately remove such recipient from all applicable mailing lists and refrain from further transmissions of e-mail to such recipient.
7.1.9 Use of any auto-responder messages, mailing lists, or any other programs or scripts run by a User to handle or re-distribute e-mail is the User’s sole responsibility, and shall be operated in a reasonable manner. This responsibility includes, but is not limited to, maintaining up-to-date mailing lists to minimize mail bouncing and to facilitate the processing of removal requests, configuring auto-responders so that they do not create mail loops, and the prompt handling of any complaints regarding UBE redistributed through a mailing list onsite.
8. Consequences of Non-compliance.
8.1.1 Violation of this Policy is strictly prohibited. In the event of any actual or potential violation, we reserve the right to suspend or terminate, either temporarily or permanently, without notice any or all Services, to block any abusive activity, or to take any other actions as deemed appropriate by us, in our sole discretion.
8.1.2 If you violate this Policy, you may incur criminal or civil liability. We may refer you to civil or criminal authorities for prosecution, and will cooperate fully with applicable government authorities in connection with the civil or criminal investigations of violations.

DSL Terms of Service
SERVICE. Urbanfibre 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”). Urbanfibre 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” is a Verizon Subscriber, and a Subscriber in “Network 4” is a Covad Subscriber, and a Subscriber in “Network 6” is a Qwest 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 Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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. Urbanfibre’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 Urbanfibre’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 Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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. The current Supplier Surcharge Recovery is one dollar and ninety-three cents ($1.93) for all clients. 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). When possible, Urbanfibre will break out such charges on the monthly invoice. You may change your plan speed at any time. A fifty dollar ($50.00) downgrade fee will apply to any AT&T Subscriber, Verizon Subscriber, or Qwest Subscriber who downgrades their speed. A ninety-nine dollar ($99.00) fee will apply to any Covad Subscriber who upgrades or downgrades their speed. A fifty dollar ($50.00) fee will apply to any Subscriber who switches from a Static IP to a Dynamic IP. Promotional packages are only available to first time Urbanfibre Subscribers.
SETUP AND ACTIVATION FEES. There are currently no activation fees associated with the URBANFIBRE DSL service.
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, Urbanfibre 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, Urbanfibre 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. Subscribers are responsible for any disputed charges beyond sixty (60) days from the date of the charge. Any account which goes into collection status will be transferred to a collection agency and incur a twenty-five dollar ($25.00) processing fee and all other applicable fees and charges. Subscribers must pay a twenty-five dollar ($25.00) service charge on all returned checks, disputed credit cards, and credit card chargebacks. Past due accounts will accrue a monthly charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the past due balance or one dollar ($1.00), whichever is greater.
EQUIPMENT. During signup, the Subscriber will be given the choice to rent or purchase a DSL modem. If the Subscriber is renting the modem, the Subscriber must return to Urbanfibre the complete modem kit in a useable condition at Subscriber’s expense within thirty (30) days of termination of the Service by Subscriber or Urbanfibre. Subscriber must pay sixty-nine dollars and ninety nine cents ($69.99) plus applicable taxes to purchase any modem Subscriber does not return to Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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).
TERMINATION BY SUBSCRIBER. Subscriber may terminate this Agreement at any time for any reason by providing Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre 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. If this Agreement is terminated prior to the end of a Monthly Subscriber’s initial twelve (12) month term, such Monthly 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 one hundred and fifty dollars ($150.00) (“Early Termination Fee”). In the event a Monthly 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 Urbanfibre has failed to cure after what Urbanfibre 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 Urbanfibre in its valid written termination request. Urbanfibre must in turn be given the opportunity to resolve the problem and the Subscriber must be willing to troubleshoot with URBANFIBRE as well as be available for and authorize the dispatch of a network provider technician. URBANFIBRE 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 URBANFIBRE. If, in URBANFIBRE’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, URBANFIBRE’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 URBANFIBRE’s technical support staff, customer service staff or any other URBANFIBRE employees or representatives; (d) URBANFIBRE receives an order from a court to terminate a Subscriber’s Service; or (e) URBANFIBRE for any reason ceases to offer the Service, then URBANFIBRE 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. URBANFIBRE, 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 URBANFIBRE, 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, URBANFIBRE 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 SUBSCRIBERS. Completing the AT&T ISP change form authorizes AT&T to terminate DSL service with your current Internet service provider and further authorizes AT&T to establish DSL service with URBANFIBRE. 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 URBANFIBRE. 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 URBANFIBRE 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 URBANFIBRE. 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. URBANFIBRE 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. URBANFIBRE 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. A sixty dollar ($60.00) transfer fee will apply to any AT&T or Verizon Subscriber and a one hundred dollar ($100.00) transfer fee will apply to any Covad or Qwest Subscriber who must transfer their service to a standard phone line due to an incompatible phone line or phone system.
SUBSCRIBER SUPPLIED MODEM. All Subscribers must purchase or rent our DSL modem to use the service. Although our service may work with other DSL modems, we will provide no technical support to a Subscriber who uses their own modem.
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. URBANFIBRE does not provide support for router(s). All packages include basic instructions and support.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT. URBANFIBRE assumes that the Subscriber has a basic understanding of their computer. URBANFIBRE 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. URBANFIBRE 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 URBANFIBRE’s hours of operation. If a Subscriber wishes to utilize URBANFIBRE’s technical support, the Subscriber must be available to help troubleshoot the connection or computer setup. URBANFIBRE does not provide on-site technical support.
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. A sixty dollar ($60.00) transfer fee will apply to any AT&T or Verizon Subscriber and a one hundred dollar ($100.00) transfer fee will apply to any Covad or Qwest Subscriber who changes their current telephone service. This includes but is not limited to change of phone number, change of phone line or change of service location. A change in phone service will result in downtime while service is 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 URBANFIBRE. URBANFIBRE 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 URBANFIBRE’s acceptable use policy (“Acceptable Use Policy”) published at http://services.URBANFIBRE.net/html/termsofservice.html. URBANFIBRE reserves the right to make changes to the Acceptable Use Policy without notice.
PORT FILTERING. A port 25 (outgoing mail) filter is applied to all Subscribers to prevent against spam generated from our network. URBANFIBRE reserves the right to block any port without prior notice to protect the network and its Subscribers from potential virus attacks spreading over a certain port.
