- TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1.1. The provision of the FTTH Services and Products by RSAWEB to the Customer shall be subject to the provisions of the Agreement. These services are available for residential use only and cannot be used for business connectivity.
2.1. The definitions contained in clause 1 of the General Terms and Conditions, and further definitions which may be provided elsewhere in the Agreement, shall bear the same meaning in these FTTH Terms and Conditions.
- FTTH COVERAGE
3.1. FTTH Line and the Installation Fee
3.1.1. RSAWEB shall within a reasonable period of time of receipt of an order for the provision of FTTH by the Customer, advise the Customer whether an installed fibre line is available for use by the Customer and the anticipated Customer Installation Completion Date (“CICD”). The feasibility maps are given to us by the Fibre Network Operators, and therefore are subject to inaccuracy at times. This will be communicated to you if applicable.
3.1.2. Not withstanding any other provision of this Agreement, the Customer shall be entitled to cancel, by way of written notice to RSAWEB, an order for the provision of FTTH prior to the CICD if the time period from the date of the order by the Customer to planned CICD exceeds 6 (six) months. Upon such cancellation, RSAWEB shall be entitled to charge the Customer for such costs and expenses as having been incurred by RSAWEB or obligations to which RSAWEB has become necessarily bound arising from the relevant order, from the date of the order concerned up to the date of receipt or deemed receipt of such notice of cancellation, as well as the actual cost of the recovery of any equipment already installed.
3.1.3. If the setup fees are covered by RSAWEB on behalf of the client, and the customer cancels the Agreement in accordance with clause 3.5 of the General Terms and Conditions (i.e. the Customer cancels the Agreement during the Initial Period) in which case the Installation Fee will be dependent on which FNO installed the FTTH line and RSAWEB will advise the Customer accordingly. The installation fee does not apply if you already have a fibre line installed that is not damaged and is still active, however, the connection fee will still be applicable upon cancellation.
3.1.4. The setup fee covered by RSAWEB only covers the standard trenching limit as determined by the Fibre Network Operator. Should the distance of trenching exceed the limit the Fibre Network Operator will engage with the client directly to quote for the additional meterage.
3.1.5. RSAWEB is not responsible for the physical fibre infrastructure or its installation. In addition, the method of installation shall remain within the FNO’s discretion. RSAWEB assumes no responsibility for any error or omission by the FNO.
3.1.6. Prior to any installation taking place, RSAWEB will need to verify that the Customer has FTTH coverage at the premises selected by the Customer. The Customer accepts that, should the Customer not have FTTH coverage at its selected premises, RSAWEB will not be able to provide the Customer with the Services and Products.
3.1.7. If the Customer has an FTTH line but has signed up with a different ISP, it will remain the Customer’s obligation to cancel with this ISP before RSAWEB will be able to provide the Services and Products.
3.1.8. Should the Customer terminate the Agreement during the Initial Period, then the full setup Fee that was initially deferred will be paid by the Customer to RSAWEB.
3.2. Payment of Monthly Fees
3.2.1. The Customer agrees to pay RSAWEB for the Services and Products as set out in the Application Form and this Agreement one month in advance on the first working day of each and every calendar month.

188.8.131.52. purchase the router from RSAWEB at the retail value at the time of cancellation; or
184.108.40.206. return the router to RSAWEB in its original condition.
3.3.4. Should the Customer decide to return the router in terms of clause 220.127.116.11 above, it is to do so within 10 (ten) days from the date on when the Customer’s Services and Products were deactivated and the Customer is to provide its name and RSAWEB customer code when returning the router. The Customer will be liable for all courier charges associated with the return of the router. If the router is not returned within the 10 (ten) day period:
18.104.22.168. RSAWEB will not accept the return of the router and the Customer will be charged for the router at the retail value of the router at the time of cancellation; and

3.3.6. When returning the router to RSAWEB, the Customer is to ensure that the LAN cable, power cable and all other items included in the box containing the router are returned to RSAWEB. Should any items be missing, RSAWEB reserves the right to charge the Customer the cost thereof.
3.3.7 In the event that your fibre network provider increases your line speed to 200 Mbps or higher, you might need an upgraded rental router to fully benefit from these enhanced speeds. As the customer, it is your responsibility to notify us if you require upgraded hardware. In such cases, we offer the following two options:
126.96.36.199. We can coordinate a courier service to replace your current device with the upgraded router at a charge of R390 (including VAT).

- MOVING PREMISES
4.1. The Customer agrees that, should it move premises and wish to change the location where the fibre line is installed, the Customer shall apply to RSAWEB in writing for such a change by logging a ticket and following the prompts. Moving your line does require cancellation at the current location and a new order at the new location.
4.2. Upon receipt of such a request, RSAWEB shall procure that the relevant FNO conducts a feasibility study as to the possibility of accommodating such a request and the costs associated with such a relocation.
4.3. RSAWEB shall, after receiving the relevant information, inform the Customer whether the relocation of the fibre line can be accommodated and, if so, the cost associated therewith.
4.4. Should RSAWEB not be able to relocate the fibre line, unless the Customer is able to successfully cede his / her rights and delegate his / her obligations under this Agreement to the new occupier of the premises at which the fibre line was originally installed, the fibre line will continue to be provided at such location and this Agreement shall not be affected by the Customer’s relocation and the Customer shall remain liable for all charges associated with the fibre line until this Agreement is terminated in accordance with its terms.
4.5. Should RSAWEB be able to relocate the Customer’s fibre line, the Customer shall provide RSAWEB with a written confirmation as to whether the Customer accepts the quote for the costs of such relocation, failing which, the quote will lapse, and the fibre line concerned will continue to be provided at the location originally installed and on the same terms and conditions.
4.6. If a customer wishes to move their fibre service to a new residential address, they must terminate their existing service and sign up for the relocation service.
4.7. If a customer relocates by cancelling their old service and ordering a new service, they must bring their current router to the new location. Please be aware that by choosing to take the router along, the customer will not be able to use it at the previous residence, and the subsequent tenant will need to acquire a new router for their own use.

- UPGRADES AND DOWNGRADES
5.1. An application by the Customer to change the bandwidth range or technical characteristics of an existing FTTH line from that which was originally reflected in the Customer’s order, shall be regarded as an application to upgrade (to a higher bandwidth) or downgrade (to a lower bandwidth) and not as an application to terminate the Services and Products.
5.2. A once-off fee for downgrades to lower bandwidth will be charged in addition to the amended subscription fibre line charges.
