Additional Fair Use Terms on Freedom PBX Plans:
Included calls are subject to fair use. Fair use of the upstream Freedom PBX means that you must not use service in an unreasonable or fraudulent manner, or in a way that detrimentally interferes with the integrity of the upstream network.
This service is intended to be used in a way that is consistent with a typical business’ calling usage, according to statistical information known to upstream. If we determine that your use of the service or it’s features is at any time inconsistent with the normal inbound or outbound usage patterns for the type of service or plan that you have purchased, we have the right to suspend or discontinue service. Examples of inconsistent usage patterns include, but are not limited to, using the service in an outbound call centre, for telemarketing, or for providing telehealth services.
This plan can only have single-user devices such as Yealink and Cisco VoIP Phones connected to Hosted PBX Extensions only. SIP Trunking is not included and no PBX systems (Asterisk, 3CX etc) or other line-sharing devices are permitted on Freedom plans. Connection of a PBX or line-sharing device, or a configuration that results in line sharing will result in account suspension and cancellation of the account.
We may take action if you breach this policy, including suspending or cancelling your service. We reserve the right to enact such actions for any reason, at our own discretion, without notice to you.
