Terms of Use & User Agreement

Important: By signing up, using, or otherwise accessing the services provided by X-Stream Services Company,
hereinafter referred to as “internet access service”, you implicitly agree to be bound by the terms of this agreement.
This agreement may affect your rights, so you should read it carefully. Use of our services requires your acceptance of
this agreement, and it may be modified at any time without prior notice from us.

  1. Installation And Service:
    Terms: X-Stream Services Company shall install or arrange installation of products and services as set forth on the XStream Services Company Internet Order Form. All installation fees, charges for additional hardware and recurring
    service fees for the first indicated period on the order form are due and must be paid at the time service installation
    is complete. Customer shall provide all necessary preparations required to ensure proper installation, maintenance
    and operation of all the circuit; and will provide X-Stream Services Company (and its representatives and suppliers)
    all reasonable access to Customer’s premises and telephone equipment to perform any acts pursuant to this
    agreement. Customer is responsible for Professional Installation fees, and all costs of wiring beyond the point of
    demarcation (the “demarc”) as outfitted in 1(b), and for relocation of services once installed.
    Inside Wiring: The demarc will be determined in the course of installation; any wiring performed beyond this point is
    considered “inside wiring.” On a line-shared ADSL/VDSL or Broadband circuit, inside wiring is normally unnecessary.
    X-Stream Services Company (and its representatives) will do the minimum amount of inside wiring work necessary
    and feasible to complete a Professional Install if one is ordered. In some cases, Customer will need to procure
    special permission, insurance, and/or a 3rd party contractor to complete inside wiring; any fees and costs thereof are
    separate from X-Stream Services Company fees and charges, and X-Stream Services Company will not provide any
    credit, reimbursement, or discount for them.
    Professional Install: Customer will pay a Professional Install Fee, which carries a one-time $50.00 cost, if a Six Month
    Contract is signed. If the Customer does not sign the Six Month Contract, the full Professional Install charge of $200
    will be applied. X-Stream Services Company will exercise reasonable effort to arrange these appointments when
    convenient for the Customer. X-Stream Services Company reserves the right to charge a Cancellation Fee prorated
    based on the time left on the One Year Contract signed.
  2. Term of Agreement:
    This agreement shall have a term of Six Months, unless a different term is agreed upon in writing or set forth on the
    X-Stream Services Company DSL or Broadband Internet Order Form. This term shall commence on the date of
    installation completion and shall thereafter automatically renew for successive equivalent or monthly terms as
    applicable, unless terminated as set forth therein or unless written notice of non-renewal by either party is delivered
    to the other party at least thirty (30) days prior to the end of the then current term.
  3. Moving:
    If the Customer moves during the term of this agreement and would like to relocate the service, Customer must
    place a relocation request with X-Stream Services Company as soon as possible. This request must contain the
    requested date of the service termination, plus the address and phone number of the new location if possible and
    the prospective move-in date. Upon receiving a written or email relocation request from Customer, X-Stream
    Services Company will place a “move order” for the location. The Service must be maintained at the old address
    until the Service has been delivered to the new address. All applicable early-termination fees will be charged. If X-
    Stream Services Company and its agents are unable to provide service to Customer’s new location, the Agreement
    shall terminate and the Early Termination fee of $200 shall be applied, prorated based on the Six Month Contract
  4. Payment And Billing:
    Rates are as set forth on the X-Stream Services Company DSL or Broadband price list on the date the order is placed.
    Billing will commence on the date Customer’s DSL or Broadband connection to X-Stream Services Company is
    activated. Unless otherwise agreed by X-Stream Services Company and Customer in writing. Customer’s billing cycle
    will be determined by the initial payment amount as follows: If the initial payment covers a full year (inclusive of
    applicable discounts), the billing cycle will equal one year. If the initial payment covers less than one year, the billing
    cycle will equal one month. Initial charges shall be invoiced in advance, and are due on the activation date.
    Customer’s billing cycle will commence with the date of activation and subsequent payments will be due on that
    date each billing cycle. Charges more than 30 days overdue will subject Customer to interruption of service. Such
    interruption does not relieve Customer from the obligation to pay the recurring charge, and no credit will be given
    for interruptions of service due to late payment. X-Stream Services Company reserves the right to levy services
    charges, early termination fees, and fees on accounts more than 30 days overdue.
