provide You with an estimated timeline within which it will deliver the Services. Regional
Broadband 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 Regional Broadband
cannot guarantee that it will meet such dates. Regional Broadband will work with the
Wholesale Provider to provide the initial connection to You as soon as possible and in any

site by the Engineer as a result of having to wait, or as a result of having to reschedule the

You may require Equipment in order to receive the Services. Where this Equipment has

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 installation as deemed necessary by the Engineer.
The Engineer 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 the Property. You must be present at the Property at the arranged time for
install, in order to facilitate access, as required and to acknowledge that the works have
been carried out to a suitable standard.

Provision of the services and Service levels
Regional Broadband will, once installed, use reasonable skill and care in supplying the
Services, but there is no guarantee of fault free performance. Regional Broadband 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.
Due to the nature of the Service, it is often not possible for Regional Broadband to fix a

reasonable endeavours to repair faults in a timely fashion, but is not liable for compensation
or refunds to You if targeted service quality levels are not met.
Unauthorised third party access or interference

any loss or damage caused by unauthorised third party logical access to Services or the
Equipment. Security of devices and Equipment is your responsibility.
To ensure equal internet access for all subscribers, Regional Broadband operates a fair
usage policy. Fair usage establishes an equitable balance in internet access across high
speed internet services for all subscribers. A fair usage policy also exists in relation to voice
packages. To ensure this equity, certain types of traffic such as email and browsing may be
prioritized over other traffic. Regional Broadband provides the Service on a “best effort”
basis and does not guarantee upload or download speeds.
A copy of the fair usage policy is available on the website
www.regionalbroadband.ie/fair-usage-policy.pdf. Article 4.1 (d) of Regulation (EU)
2015/2120 requires Regional Broadband to provide a clear and comprehensible explanation
of the minimum, normally available, maximum and advertised download and upload speed of
the internet access services in the case of fixed networks, or of the estimated maximum and
advertised download and upload speed of the internet access services in the case of mobile
networks, and how significant deviations from the respective advertised download and
upload speeds could impact the exercise of the end-users’ rights. Regional Broadband
complies with that obligation by the publication of its Broadband Speeds Information
document on its website;
Those speeds form part of these General Terms and are the contracted speeds for your
