2.6       Deposits

(T)

(T)

 
 

Customers unable to establish or maintain their credit worthiness will be required to furnish a deposit not to exceed the estimated charges for two (2) months service.  Deposits will be held for a period of one year.  The Company shall pay interest on a deposit at the rate of 7% per annum.  Interest on a deposit shall accrue annually and, if requested, shall be annually credited to the Customer by deducting such interest from the amount of the next bill for service following the accrual date.                                                                                            

 

A deposit will be returned:

...When an application for service has been canceled  prior to the establishment of service.  The deposit will be applied to any charges applicable in accordance with the tariff and the excess portion of the deposit will be returned.

...Upon the discontinuance of service.  Upon rendition of final bill the Company will refund the Subscriber's deposit plus accrued interest or the balance in excess of unpaid bills for that service.  At the option of the Company, such a deposit may be refunded or credited to the Subscriber at any time prior to the termination of the service. The deposit shall be returned to the customer  within sixty (60) days after the discontinuance of telephone service, after deducting money due the Company.

 

The fact that a deposit has been made in no way relieves the Subscriber from complying with the regulation with respect to advance payments and the prompt payment of bills on presentation.

2.17     Specific Regulations for Inbound Toll Free "800/888" Services (Cont.)

 

            2.17.6        If a Customer places an order for ITC^DeltaCom to carry Customer's already existing Toll Free "800/888" number service, the Customer shall provide to ITC^DeltaCom the contact names, telephone number and address of the Customer's Responsible Organization (Resp. Org.). Upon subscription to ITC^DeltaCom Inbound 800 Service, the Customer may execute a Letter of Authorization to transfer Resp. Org. responsibility of its Toll Free "800/888" number(s) to ITC^DeltaCom Resp. Org. If the Customer elects to retain a non-ITC^DeltaCom Resp. Org., the Customer must notify ITC^DeltaCom of any changes in the Customer's Resp. Org., in writing, within forty-eight (48) hours of the change. The Customer is responsible for all outstanding indebtedness for services provided by a previous Resp. Org. or Toll Free "800/888" service carrier. ITC^DeltaCom assumes no responsibility or liability with respect to any obligations of the Customer to such previous service providers existing at the time of transfer to ITC^DeltaCom.

 

            2.17.7        It is the Customer's responsibility to provide answer supervision back to the ITC^DeltaCom point of connection even when the ITC^DeltaCom Inbound Toll Free "800/888" is connected to switching equipment or a Customer provided communications system. In such case, the equipment or system must provide appropriate supervision so that the measure of chargeable time begins upon answer of the call to the Customer's switching equipment or communications system and ends upon termination of the call.

 

     2.17.8        Subject to execution of a Resp. Org. Service Agreement between ITC^DeltaCom and the Customer, the ITC^DeltaCom Resp. Org. will perform the function of Resp. Org. for all ITC^DeltaCom Inbound Toll Free "800/888" Service orders unless the Customer requests another Resp. Org. ITC^DeltaCom Resp. Org. functions include:

                                   

                              (A)    Search for and reservation of Toll Free "800/ 888" numbers in the SMS/800;

 

                              (B)    Creating and maintaining the Toll Free "800/ 888" number Customer record in the SMS/800; and

 

                              (C)    Provision of a single point of contact for trouble reporting.

2.17     Specific Regulations for Inbound Toll Free "800/888" Services (Cont.)

 

            2.17.9        Where ITC^DeltaCom serves as the Resp. Org. for a ITC^DeltaCom Inbound Toll Free "800/ 888" Service Customer, ITC^DeltaCom will, at the Customer's request, subscribe to Toll Free "800/888" Directory Listing for the Toll Free "800/888" number(s) assigned to the Customer. A charge for Toll Free "800/888" Directory Listings will apply as set forth in Section 3 of this tariff.

 

In the event that a Customer transfers its Toll Free "800/888" Service to another Resp. Org., the Company shall cease to subscribe to Toll Free "800/888" Directory Listing Service on behalf of the Customer and the Customer is responsible for assuring that Toll Free "800/888" Directory Listing Service is maintained through the new Resp. Org. The Customer is responsible for payment of any outstanding Toll Free "800/888" Directory Listing charges, including any unexpired portion of any minimum period applicable to such service, and ITC^DeltaCom shall have no liability for any interruption or other delay, error, mistake, omission or other defect occurring in connection with the transfer of Toll Free "800/888" Directory Listing responsibility.

 

            2.17.10      In the event that a Customer cancels its ITC^DeltaCom Resp. Org. or Inbound Toll Free "800/888" Service, the Customer shall be responsible for all outstanding indebtedness to the Company and any outstanding charges applicable to any service obtained by or on behalf of the Customer by ITC^DeltaCom.

Call timing begins when called party goes off-hook.  Call timing stops when either calling or called party hangs up.

3.2       Annual Usage Commitment Level and Discontinuance Charge

 

Customers who enter into a term agreement must meet an Annual Usage Commitment Level. As long as the Customer maintains service with ITC^DeltaCom,  the requirement to maintain the "Annual Usage Commitment Level" remains in effect. The Customer's Annual Usage Commitment Level is established by using the third (3rd) month's actual usage, excluding directory assistance, multiplying by twelve (12) months, and dividing this amount by 50%.  By the end of the twelfth (12th) month of the Customer's term, usage must be at or above the established Annual Usage Commitment Level. If the Customer's usage does not meet this requirement, in the 13th month, and at the end of each 12 month period remaining in the term to which the Customer agreed, the Customer will be billed the difference between the actual usage level and the predetermined Annual Usage Commitment Level.

 

The Customer may discontinue service by contacting ITC^DeltaCom Customer Service Center within the first 90 days of the term without incurring "Discontinuance Charges". However, upon  cancellation during the first 90 days of the term, the Customer  will be responsible for payment of all accrued charges for  usage to date.

 

All Customer notices of discontinuance must be received by ITC^DeltaCom 30 days prior to the discontinuance becoming effective. If the Customer has entered into a term agreement and cancels service after the initial 90 day period, but before the expiration of the term, due to customer service, sales support or network quality, the customer will be responsible for usage to date of effective cancellation.      

 

If the Customer has entered into a term agreement and cancels service after the initial 90 day period, but before the expiration of the term, due to a competitive bid, the Customer will be responsible for a Discontinuance Charge.

 

The "Discontinuance Charge" includes usage charges to date of effective cancellation and any incentives received during the term, including waived installation charges and/or discounts.

          3.3.6.1 Directory Assistance Service

 

Directory Assistance provides the calling party with the ability to obtain name, address and/or telephone number for a listed telephone subscriber.  Directory Assistance is reached by dialing 1+ area code + 555-1212.  Up to two subscriber listings, within the area code dialed may be obtained on each call to Directory Assistance.

                        -      the Customer is unable to use a telephone directory because of visual or physical handicap; however, the request must be for personal use and billed to the handicapped Customer's residential telephone number;

 

                        -      the Customer experiences poor transmission or is cut-off during the call;

 

                        -      the Customer is given an incorrect telephone number, or;

Customers may receive credit by notifying the Company's business address.
