Specific terms for Digiweb VoIP, or Broadband Talk Services

 

Introduction
The following specific terms and conditions are additional to those in the prevailing Digiweb Ltd General Terms and Conditions (“GTC”). These are the Specific Terms referred to in the GTC and apply to Digiweb VOIP or Broadband Talk Services (the “Talk Service”). These Specific Terms are in addition to the GTC, and in addition to the Specific Terms set out for the broadband service underlying the Talk Service.

The Talk Service is a hosted voice over internet protocol (VoIP) service, providing the facility to make and receive a telephone call on a suitably enabled Digiweb broadband service, and any other facilities that Digiweb agrees to provide You. You are able to make and receive calls to other VOIP users as well as access the public switched telephone, mobile and international networks.

A. Service Limitations (Important – 999 / 112 emergency calls)

1. The ability to make 999 or 112 emergency calls cannot be guaranteed. 999 or 112 emergency calls may fail if there is a failure of mains power or if the internet access service has failed.

2. It will not be possible to make 999 or 112 emergency calls:

(a) from a mobile device using the Talk Service (but 999 or 112 calls may be possible over the mobile network); or

(b) if Digiweb has suspended or interrupted the Service for any reason.

3. Wherever possible You should consider an alternative means to support emergency calls should the Talk Service not be available.

4. Due to the nomadic nature of the Talk Service, Digiweb cannot guarantee that emergency services will be able to accurately locate the origin of the call from Your number.
