Notice: By activating or using Virginia Broadband, L.L.C. services and equipment you agree to be bound by the following:

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

1. Services. VABB shall provide wireless broadband Internet Access Services, together with the Additional Services, if any, (collectively, the “Services”) to the Customer upon the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, including these Terms and Conditions. Except for the Equipment described in Section 2 below, the Customer is responsible, at its sole expense, for obtaining any equipment needed to access, connect to, or use the Services including without limitation a personal computer, and for ensuring that such equipment complies with VABB’s minimum systems and compatibility requirements.

2. Equipment. VABB shall provide certain equipment necessary to access and utilize the Services to the Customer, including antenna, wiring, and VABB Base Station receiver (the “Customer Premise Equipment “CPE”). This equipment remains the property of VABB. Customer is responsible for any and all losses, repairs, or damages to the CPE following installation, regardless of cause. Customer agrees that the CPE shall remain at all times at the Customer’s premises at the time of installation (the “Premises”). Under no circumstances shall Customer remove, uninstall, modify, or change the location of any of the CPE, or attempt any of the foregoing actions. In addition to Customer’s indemnity obligations under Section 14 below, Customer forever waives and releases VABB and its employees, officers, agents, and representatives from and against any and all liability for any loss or damage (including death, bodily injury, and property damage) suffered or incurred by Customer or any other person as a result of any attempt by Customer, or any other person (except an employee or agent of VABB), to install, remove, uninstall, modify, or change the location of any of the CPE. VABB, BEING NEITHER THE MANUFACTURER, A SUPPLIER, NOR A DEALER OF THE CPE, MAKES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, TO ANYONE, AS TO THE FITNESS, MERCHANTABILITY, DESIGN, CONDITION, CAPACITY, PERFORMANCE OR ANY OTHER ASPECT OF ANY OF THE CPE OR ITS MATERIAL OR WORKMANSHIP. VABB FURTHER DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR LOSS, DAMAGES, OR INJURY TO CUSTOMER OR THIRD PARTIES AS A RESULT OF ANY DEFECTS, LATENT OR OTHERWISE, IN THE CPE. THE CPE IS PROVIDED “AS IS”.

3. Additional Installation Fees. The installation fees cover standard installation of the CPE. If additional services or equipment are required in order to install the CPE, VABB shall have no obligation to perform or provide any such additional services or equipment and may terminate this Agreement immediately. If VABB performs or provides any additional services or equipment, Customer agrees to pay all fees, costs, charges, and expenses relating thereto, which shall be determined by the then-prevailing hourly rate for VABB technicians and/or the cost of the equipment provided (the “Additional Installation Fees”).

4. Initial Term; Renewal Term. After the expiration of the Initial Term, this Agreement shall continue on a month-to-month basis until the customer contacts Virginia Broadband to arrange termination and de-installation of the equipment, if any. Termination shall be as-of the effective date of the notice provided to VABB. VABB will not grant credit or allowance for time of service prior to the cancellation date.

5. Payment Terms. Customer agrees to pay VABB the Installation Fees, the Additional Installation Fees, and the recurring monthly fee for the Services (the “Monthly Fee”), together with all applicable regulatory fees and taxes (collectively, “Fees”). All invoices for Services are subject to payment in accordance with VABB’s prevailing terms and conditions as of the date of such invoice, without deduction or setoff of any kind, and payment must be received by VABB by the payment date set forth on the invoice. All customer payments will be made by credit card unless VABB agrees in advance to an alternative form of payment. The Monthly Fee is due and payable in advance of each monthly billing period. All Fees are non-refundable. Customer’s first invoice will include Installation Fees, Additional Installation Fees, and monthly fee. Any invoice not paid when due shall have added to the unpaid balance thereof, on a monthly basis, a late fee equal to one and one-half percent (1.5%) of the outstanding balance (the “Late Fee”). Payments received by VABB from Customer will first be applied to any unpaid Late Fees and then chronologically applied to the oldest invoice. All prices and payment terms are subject to change without notice.

6. Early Termination Fee (“ETF”). In the event that Customer terminates this Agreement (or this Agreement is terminated by VABB for Cause pursuant to Section 10 below) prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or any Renewal Term, Customer agrees to pay VABB an early termination fee in the amount of $199.00 as liquidated and agreed-upon damages. The ETF, together with any other Fees due from the Customer as of the effective date of such termination shall be due and payable immediately by Customer upon delivery of an invoice therefor by VABB. Customer agrees that the ETF is not a penalty, but is a reasonable approximation of damages as of the Effective Date. Customer forever waives any right to protest or challenge the enforceability of the ETF.

7. Compliance.

Customer agrees that Customer and all Users shall (a) comply with all of the terms of this Agreement, including these Terms and Conditions, and the Policy; (b) comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations; and (c) not use the Services in any manner to violate, infringe, or misappropriate any party’s intellectual property or proprietary rights, including without limitation any copyright, trademark, trade secret, or patent rights of any party. Without limiting the foregoing, Customer agrees that when using the Services, Customer and all Users shall comply with all copyright laws, including without limitation the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). If VABB becomes aware of alleged, actual, or apparent copyright infringement, VABB may take any action it deems necessary or appropriate, including without limitation any action permitted under copyright law, other applicable laws, and these Terms and Conditions, including, removing and/or blocking access to the allegedly infringing material, and terminating Customer’s use of the Services.

Customer acknowledges and agrees that VABB shall have the right to monitor Customer’s “bandwidth consumption” (i.e. aggregate volume of data that may be sent or received) at any time and on an on-going basis, and to limit excessive bandwidth consumption by Customer (as determined by VABB) by any means available to VABB, including suspension or termination of Services. VABB reserves the right to implement specific limits on the maximum amount of bandwidth consumption available to Customer per month – defined as 30 consecutive days, beginning on the first day of service for the level of ISP Service subscribed for by Customer. If Customer exceeds the bandwidth consumption limits assigned to the level of ISP Service for which Customer has subscribed in any month, VABB has the right to limit bandwidth consumption by Customer in excess of such level by any means available to VABB, including to impose an additional fee of $.02/Megabyte and/or suspension of Services.

These limits are (new as of June 1, 2013):

  • Seniors Package – 1 GByte/mo.
  • 2 GB Plan- 2 GBytes/mo.
  • 5 GB Plan- 5 GBytes/mo.
  • 10 GB Plan- 10 GBytes/mo.
  • 25 GB Plan- 25 GBytes/mo.
  • 50 GB Plan – 50 Gbytes/mo.
  • Additional GB package – each adds 10 Gbytes/mo.

This Bandwidth Limit policy, regardless of reason, applies to all Virginia Broadband subscribers with Internet access service. Bandwidth overage will be automatically charged to the Customer’s credit card number on file. If a credit card is not on file, an invoice – payable upon receipt will be sent via email to the customer’s primary VABB.com email address.

The Customer (a) shall not use the CPE or the Services, except for Customer’s internal business purposes; (b) shall not make any part of the Services available to members of the public, including through the use of a wireless network or by providing or offering the Services to neighbors, or other tenants in a multi-tenant facility; and (c) shall not use, or make available, the service for the operation of an Internet Service or Service Bureau.

9. Intellectual Property.

All websites, corporate names, service marks, trademarks, trade names, logos, and domain names (collectively “Marks”) of VABB are and shall remain the exclusive property of VABB and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to grant Customer the right or license to use any Marks. Customer acknowledges and aggress that Customer is not granted a license or right or to use any VABB Intellectual Property other than a limited, nontransferable, revocable license to use such VABB Intellectual Property in connection with Customer’s use of the Services as necessary to access the Internet, provided that such use is in strict compliance with the terms of this Agreement. Any other use by Customer of any VABB Intellectual Property shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement entitling VABB to immediately terminate this Agreement in addition to all other remedies available at law or in equity (including, without limitation seeking injunctive relief). Customer agrees that under no circumstances shall it reverse compile, disassemble or reverse engineer or otherwise attempt to derive the source code from the binary code of any VABB Intellectual Property.

10. Termination; Default. VABB may terminate this Agreement, and Customer’s use of the Services, for any reason whatsoever by providing Customer with thirty (30) days prior written notice of termination. VABB may terminate this Agreement for Cause if Customer or any User breaches any term of this Agreement and fails to totally cure such breach within thirty (30) days following Customer’s receipt of written notice from VABB, specifying such breach; provided, however, that VABB may immediately terminate this Agreement without prior notice to Customer, and without a cure period, if (a) Customer or any User breaches any of the provisions of Sections 7, 8, and 9 of these Terms and Conditions, and/or any provision of the Policy; or (b) Customer becomes insolvent, executes an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, voluntarily files a petition in bankruptcy, or has a petition in bankruptcy filed against it under the United Sates bankruptcy laws.

Unless alternative arrangements are agreed by VABB in writing, if, following the termination of this Agreement, Customer fails to permit VABB access to the Premises to remove and retrieve the CPE, or otherwise fails to return any CPE to VABB within ten (10) business days of the effective date of termination of this Agreement, Customer agrees to pay VABB an CPE fee (the “CPE Fee”) of Fifty Dollars ($50) for each day thereafter that Customer retains possession of the CPE. Customer agrees that the CPE Fee is not a penalty, but is a reasonable approximation of VABB’s damages as of the Effective Date. Customer forever waives any right to protest or challenge the enforceability of the CPE Fee. In the event that any CPE is not returned in acceptable condition, normal wear and tear excepted, Customer shall pay VABB all reasonable repair costs, or the cost of replacement.
