    16. On the placing of an order for the Services, Vodafone will provide you with a timeline within which it will deliver the Services. This timeline may vary from customer to customer depending on the circumstances affecting the delivery mechanism for you. Vodafone will use its reasonable efforts to install the Services in accordance with the timeline it agrees with you, but such dates are estimates only and Vodafone cannot guarantee that it will meet such dates. Vodafone will work with the Access Provider to provide the initial connection to you as soon as possible and in any event within ninety (90) days of the date on your Customer Application Form or as otherwise agreed with you.
    17. Each new order for the Services may require a Vodafone Agent visit to install the Equipment in your home or business premises (“Service Installation”). If an engineer visit is required, you will be notified with an initial appointment date and time (within normal working hours) for Service Installation. If you wish to reschedule this initial appointment, you can do so without charge until 5pm on previous working day, prior to the appointment.
    18. The Service Installation will commence with an overview of your home or business premises (the “Premises”) to ensure that the Premises can support the Services. You must allow the Vodafone Agents access to your property in order to allow for the installation of Equipment and so that they may carry out any works necessary for the provision of such Services.
    19. You must have the Premises ready and safe for the Vodafone Agents to arrange the Service Installation. At the time of placing your order where you have requested that an extension kit be installed, you accept full responsibility to ensure that there is a clear and safe environment for the engineer to carry out the Service Installation. This includes moving any furniture likely to obstruct the path of the extension kit cable prior to the arrival of the Vodafone Agents. Under no circumstances will Vodafone Agents engage in such activity and Vodafone reserve the right to charge for any additional time spent on site by the Vodafone Agents as a result of having to wait, or as a result of having to reschedule the appointment due to the Premises not being ready for the Service Installation.
    20. The Service Installation may require works to be carried out on the Premises, which may include a change of phone socket in the wall or drilling a hole through the wall of your property and affixing a coupler box to an external and internal wall and/or any other works which may be required to complete the Service Installation as deemed necessary by the Vodafone Agents. The Vodafone Agents will utilise any suitable available pre-existing overhead and underground infrastructure where possible, although in certain circumstances, underground digs may be required. Where no underground ducts are available, an overhead install solution may be used between homes and/or businesses and/or from a power line, or telephone, pole onto the façade of your premises. You must be present at the premises at the arranged time for install, in order to facilitate access to the premises, as required and to acknowledge that the works have been carried out to a suitable standard.

FAILURE TO OBTAIN THESE CONSENTS SHALL RESULT IN THIS AGREEMENT BEING TERMINATED WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT WITHOUT PENALTY BETWEEN VODAFONE AND YOU. Where rental premises are concerned, it is the responsibility of the tenant to inform and seek permission from the landlord regarding the installation of Equipment, including any required alterations to the premises. YOU AGREE THAT YOU WILL INDEMNIFY VODAFONE IN RESPECT OF ANY CLAIM OF TRESPASS BY A LANDLORD OR ANY THIRD PARTY IN CIRCUMSTANCES WHERE YOU HAVE FAILED TO OBTAIN THE APPROPRIATE CONSENT AS REQUIRED UNDER THIS CLAUSE.

    24. The Service Installation will be completed by the Vodafone Agents. Vodafone does not accept any liability whatsoever for any loss or damage that may occur to the Premises during the Service Installation.
    25. You acknowledge that your power supply may be interrupted during the installation process. Furthermore during the provisioning of a Service you may experience a temporary loss of existing services and Vodafone shall not be held liable to you for any losses or damages howsoever arising during such period.
    26. Please note you will be liable to pay a cancellation/penalty charge to Vodafone in each of the following cases;
      • a. If you have not provided the necessary cancellation notice period in respect of the scheduled Service Installation Appointment (i.e. Up to 5pm of the previous working day) or do not answer your phone within 10 minutes of the scheduled Service Installation Appointment;
      • b. If the Vodafone Agents cannot gain access to the Premises due to a 3rd party access issue, for example within an apartment block;
      • c. If you refuse to allow the Vodafone Agents onto your property on the agreed appointment date;

      • e. Where the environment is considered dangerous or unsafe to the Vodafone Agents, the works may not proceed but the cancellation/penalty charge may be levied regardless.
    27. THE SERVICES

    28. After installation has been completed, Vodafone will provide the Services in accordance with this Agreement.
    29. In supplying the Services, Vodafone will use reasonable skill and care but cannot guarantee fault free performance. Vodafone does not warrant that the Services will be suitable for specific customer applications, that the operation of the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free or that the Services will support or be compatible with any applications or other services which the Customer uses in conjunction with the Services.
    30. Due to the wide range of causes of faults, many of them outside of Vodafone’s control, it is not possible for Vodafone to fix a particular fault in a guaranteed timeframe. However, Vodafone will use all reasonable endeavours to repair faults in a timely fashion. There are no compensation and refund arrangements which apply if targeted service quality levels are not met, the service is provided on a best effort basis.
    31. Vodafone reserves the right, at its discretion and without prejudice to any other provisions of this Agreement, to issue such reasonable instructions concerning the use of the Services as it considers necessary in the interests of safety, quality of the Services, other customers or telecommunications services as a whole.

    32. Vodafone may modify the standard settings and/or features of the Services to offer additional services or value to a Customer’s Services or tariff plan from time to time.
    33. Vodafone shall make reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorised access to the Services by third parties but shall have no liability to the Customer for any loss or damage caused by unauthorised third party access to Services or the Equipment.
    34. FAIR USAGE

    35. Vodafone operates a fair usage policy (FUP). It is important to Vodafone that all eligible Vodafone customers are able to access our Services. Accordingly, we have devised a FUP which applies to all our Services. Vodafone may rely on this fair use policy where your usage of the Services is excessive or unreasonable as detailed in this paragraph. Vodafone has developed a threshold for the Services and the related tariffs by reference to average customer profiles and estimated customer usage of the Services (particularly the estimated volume and length of calls likely to be made and data used by end users) (the “Threshold”). If, at the absolute discretion of Vodafone, Vodafone is of the opinion, that your usage of the Services materially exceeds the Threshold over any month, Vodafone may contact you to advise you that your usage exceeds its fair use policy. If the excessive usage continues to exceed the Threshold after receipt of a request to desist from or alter the nature of such usage, Vodafone reserves the right to charge you for the excessive element of your usage at your price plan's standard rate or to suspend, at its absolute discretion, modify or restrict your use of the Service or to withdraw your access to the Services entirely.
    36. SUSPENSION OF THE SERVICE

    37. You agree that from time to time it may be necessary for Vodafone to temporarily suspend the Services during periods of repair, essential maintenance or alteration or improvement to the Services or otherwise in accordance with the law.
    38. Vodafone may immediately, without notice, temporarily bar, suspend, restrict, and/or disconnect your use of the Services (collectively “Suspension”) wholly or partially for any valid reason, including without limitation, where:

      • b. you fail to observe any other term or obligation set out herein or any relevant law; or
      • c. you engage in any activity (or permits any activity) which Vodafone (as in its discretion shall determine) considers:

        • ii. is or is likely to have an adverse impact on the quality of the Services or the integrity of the Services.
    39. Vodafone shall use reasonable endeavours to contact you, but shall not be obliged to contact you, prior to any such suspension of the Services.
    40. Vodafone shall be entitled to maintain suspension of the Services until any breach outlined in Clause 33 is remedied to Vodafone’s’ satisfaction.
    41. VODAFONE SHALL BE ENTITLED TO CHARGE A RECONNECTION FEE, AS SET OUT IN THE TARIFF SHEET, ON RECONNECTION OF A CUSTOMER FOLLOWING ANY TEMPORARY PERIOD OF SUSPENSION PURSUANT TO CLAUSE 33.
    42. Vodafone may suspend the Services from time to time, without liability or notice, for the alteration, improvement or maintenance of the Services and/or where it is required to do so in compliance with any regulatory, government or legal requirement.
