  • 2.2. The Services account holder must also be the Direct Debit account holder.

If you are not the landline account holder, you also warrant that you have the permission of the landline account holder to contract for the Services.

You are responsible for any use of the Services via your account and the payment of all Charges.
  • 2.3. You agree that we, or third parties acting on our behalf, may carry out credit checks using the information that you provide.
  • 2.4. By placing your order, you are making an offer to enter into a contract with us for the purchase of the relevant Service from us under the Terms. We will contact you if we accept your offer. We may exercise our discretion, acting reasonably, to refuse to provide any part of the Services to you.
  • 2.5. You need to sign up for an O2 online account on www.o2.co.uk with a user name and password at the time of placing your order. If you have an existing www.o2.co.uk account, you may also be required to sign up to and maintain a new account in order to place an order for the Services. You will need to accept the terms and conditions of use of the O2 online account when you sign up for the account. If you are an existing O2 customer you may not be able to use your existing O2 online account. You will be advised of this at the time of signing up for the Services.
  • 2.6. We or our agents may record or monitor some telephone calls, emails and any other communications between you and us (or our agents) for training and quality control and our lawful business purposes.

3. What equipment do we provide?

  • 3.1. After accepting your order, we will send you the Equipment to your delivery address. The Equipment remains our property and you must take good care of the Equipment while it is leased to you for as long as you continue to receive the Services.
  • 3.2. If your O2 wireless box is faulty, you must notify us immediately and we will repair or replace it at no cost, providing the fault is not caused by your abuse or negligence. If the fault is caused by your abuse or negligence:

    • (a) we may charge you the reasonable costs of any repair or replacement; and
    • (b) you will not be credited for Charges incurred during the period in which the O2 wireless box is not operational.
  • 3.3. You are only permitted to use the Equipment to connect to our network, or a network approved by us. We cannot support any other equipment used to connect to the Services.
  • 3.4. In order to connect to the Services, we may require you install certain Software on your computer. If you do not install this Software, we may not be able to resolve any installation or connection problems you may experience and we are not responsible to you in relation to any matter that arises as a result of your failure to do so.
  • 3.5. Certain elements of the Services are dependent on you having suitable infrastructure available and/or using the correct Software and/or Equipment. In the event that you are unable to provide suitable infrastructure, or fail to use the correct Software and Equipment, then some of the Services may not function correctly, or be able to be supplied to you ("the Affected Services") and O2 shall have no liability for your inability to receive the Affected Services.
  • 3.6. Upon termination of your contract, you must return the Equipment in the prepaid returns envelope provided to you and take it to the Post Office. We must receive the Equipment within 30 days of the termination date. If we do not receive the Equipment within that timeframe, your payment card will be charged or your bank account will be debited a fee of £50. If you keep any Equipment after we stop providing Services, it is supplied to you 'as is', without warranty and we are not able to support it.
  • 3.7. All Equipment, content, software or other copyright material we supply to you is for your own personal use, and you must not copy, change or publish the material or supply it to any other person for any business purposes. Similarly the Services are for your personal use and you shall not resell the Services.

4. Will you get a static IP address?

You will receive a dynamic IP address unless you choose to pay monthly in advance for the static IP option. If you have a static IP address, it will be re-assigned to us or to another customer if your Services are disconnected or terminated for any reason.

5. How do you get connected?

  • 5.1. You must have a computer with a minimum specification (Windows XP or Windows Vista). You can view these in online help at www.o2.co.uk/help/broadband
  • 5.2. You agree to provide any reasonable co-operation and assistance that may be required to get you connected.
  • 5.3. When connecting your landline to the Services, there may be a temporary loss of telephone services or other telecommunications services. We will try to keep this disruption to a minimum, but will not be responsible for any resulting damage, loss or costs caused, unless caused by our negligence.
  • 5.4. The actual speed of your broadband connection under your package will depend on your telephone line. The actual throughput speed that you receive is likely to be lower than the estimated access line speed given to you before your purchase and the headline "up to" speeds featured in our advertising. Your actual speeds will be influenced by a large number of factors including, for example, the distance of your premises from the BT exchange, the quality of your copper line, and environmental line noise, so we cannot guarantee that your connection will reach any specific speeds.
  • 5.5. Your actual connection speed may also be influenced by any traffic shaping or management policies which we may have in place from time to time. If such a policy is in place, details will be available on our website at o2.co.uk/broadband
  • 5.6. While you're connected to our network, you'll need to remain with the landline provider with which you originally took up the Services. If you change your landline provider, or your landline is disconnected or suspended for any reason you may not be able to continue receiving our Services, and the termination provisions in clause 7 will apply.

6. Termination before Services connection

  • 6.1. On the Contract Date, we will charge you a one-off connection fee of £15 (if relevant), a pro-rated amount of the recurring Charges until the end of the month (if relevant), and the next month's recurring Charges in advance.
  • 6.2. We may terminate your contract after the Contract Date but before the Services are connected if we're not able to provide the Services to your premises for any reason (other than as a result of your own act or omission). Any Charges you have paid will be refunded to you as a credit to the payment card or your bank account.
  • 6.3. In the unlikely event that we send you an email confirming a connection date, but do not actually connect your Service for more than one (1) month after this confirmed connection date (other than as a result of your own act or omission), you are entitled to terminate your contract with us by sending a cancellation notice in writing, notwithstanding clause 7.4. Any Charges you have paid will be refunded to you as a credit to the payment card or your bank account.

7 What is the contract period and how does it end?

  • 7.1. Your contract starts on the Contract Date, and the Services start on the Services Connection Date. The Services Connection Date will be notified to you via your nominated email address and mobile phone number.
  • 7.2. After the Minimum Term you will continue to receive the Services until either you or we end your contract in accordance with this clause 7.
  • 7.3. You may terminate your contract within the first 14 days after the Services Connection Date (the "Cooling Off Period") by giving us written notice, to be received by us no later than the 14th day after the Services Connection Date. You will receive a refund of all connection and subscription Charges incurred by you during the Cooling Off Period. If you terminate your contract during the Cooling Off Period, you may not be able to request the Services at the same installation address for six months after the end of the Cooling Off Period.
  • 7.4. After the Cooling Off Period, you may terminate your contract:

    • (a) by sending us 30 days' notice in writing via the O2 Broadband customer service email address given on the Contact Us page of www.o2.co.uk/help/broadband or to the postal address: O2 Broadband Customer Service, Skypark 4, 8 Elliott Place, Glasgow, G3 8EP. You must pay all Charges incurred during the 30 days. If termination is effective within any Minimum Term, you must pay us the monthly subscription charges up to the end of that Minimum Term. This does not apply if you end the Agreement for the reasons in paragraph
      7.4 (c); or
    • (b) by paying an express cancellation fee of £15 and all Charges that would have been incurred during the usual 30-day notice period. If termination is effective within any Minimum Term, you must pay us the monthly subscription charges up to the end of that Minimum Term. This does not apply if you end the Agreement for the reasons in paragraph 7.4 (c). Service will be terminated usually within four (4) days after receipt of your express cancellation notice in writing; or
    • (c) if we increase the Charges or change the Terms to your significant disadvantage, (other than where such increases in Charges or change to the Terms arise as a consequence of a change in prices, tariffs, terms or otherwise made or requested by third party manufacturers or suppliers, or a regulatory body), by giving us 30 days' written notice within 30 days of us informing you of the changes. You must pay all Charges incurred during the 30 days' notice period. However, if termination is effective within the Minimum Term, you will not be charged the monthly subscription charges up to the end of that Minimum Term. This clause 7.4 (c) does not apply where the increase or change relates solely to Additional Services in which case you may cancel, or stop using, that Additional Service.
  • 7.5. We may terminate your contract or suspend all or part of the Services if:

    • (a) we have not been able to take payment, by the due date, of any money you owe us;
    • (b) we reasonably believe that you or others (whether under your control or not) are misusing the Services (see our 'Fair and Acceptable Usage Policy');
    • (c) you otherwise breach the Terms;
    • (d) you are persistently abusive or make threats, repeatedly cause a nuisance or annoyance, or otherwise act illegally towards our staff or our property or that of our agents;
    • (e) you allow to be done anything which in O2's reasonable opinion may have the effect of jeopardising the operation of the Services, or the Services are being used in a manner prejudicial to the interest of the Customer, other customers and/or O2; or
    • (f) we are no longer able to provide you with the Services.
  • 7.6. Either you or we may terminate your contract by giving thirty (30) days' written notice to the other if:

    • (a) there has been a material breach of the Terms or any other agreement between us by the other party (and this isn't corrected within thirty (30) days of a written notice notifying the breach);
    • (b) an event, outside O2's reasonable control, prevents us from providing the Services for more than thirty (30) days; or
    • (c) we go into liquidation or a Receiver is appointed over our assets.
  • 7.7. Your request for a MAC key is not deemed to be your notice of termination. However, if the MAC key is used by another broadband provider and if you do not provide notice under clause 7.4, the date that the MAC key was used will be taken to be the date that we received your notice of termination under clause 7.4(a).
  • 7.8. If we suspend your Services pursuant to clauses 7.5(a), 7.5(b), 7.5(c), 7.5(d) or 7.5(e), then you will be liable for the Charges during such suspension. If we suspend your Services for any other reason, you will not be liable for the Charges during such suspension.
  • 7.9. If we terminate your Services pursuant to clauses 7.5(a), 7.5(b), 7.5(c), 7.5(d) or 7.6(a), then we will be entitled to charge you for the Charges which would have been payable to us as if you had terminated in accordance with clause 7.4(a).
  • 7.10. If you terminate the Services pursuant to clause 7.6(b), all recurring Charges for the period of downtime will be refunded as a credit to the payment card or your bank account.

If you experience a total loss of Service directly caused by us (except where you have requested that the Services are moved to a new premises in accordance with clause 11) for more than five (5) consecutive days, you'll be compensated for each day's disruption (including the first five (5) days) by a credit towards your recurring charges for those days. In order to receive this credit, you will need to notify us as soon as the Service failure occurs and request the appropriate credit by contacting customer service when your Service is restored.

  • 11.1. If your new address is in an area that's covered by the Services, the Services can be moved to your new address, provided you give us written notice, to be received by us at least seven days before the expected moving date.
