Unlimited Voice Services or Plans

JVoIP Telecom reserves the right to periodically review usage levels of unlimited minute service plans to ensure that you are not using such service in violation of this AUP and if such an abuse or violation is discovered to terminate or adjust the plan as appropriate. You agree to use the unlimited minute service plans for traditional voice or fax call of a duration comparable to that of the average residential or small business customer presently utilizing JVoIP Telecom’s service and will not employ methods, devices or procedures to take advantage of unlimited plans by using the voice or fax services excessively or for means not intended by JVoIP Telecom. Excessive use is defined by JVoIP Telecom as use that substantially exceeds the average call volume or duration used by all other JVoIP Telecom unlimited plan customers, and attempting to originate or terminate multiple concurrent phone calls through any single line of service. The following types of services are specifically prohibited and may not be accessed through JVoIP Telecom’s unlimited voice service plan: conference calling, monitoring services, data transmissions, transmission of broadcasts or transmission of recorded material. JVoIP Telecom may terminate your service or change your service plan if, in its sole discretion, JVoIP Telecom determines that your use of the unlimited plan violates this prohibition or is otherwise “unreasonable” or results in abuse of the unlimited minute service plan.

We consider your use of our Unlimited plan to be “unreasonable” and therefore subject to immediate termination if you:

  • re-sell, re-brand, re-supply, re-market or commercially exploit our Unlimited Service, without our written consent, in order to aggregate traffic from more than one customer over an “unlimited” line or trunk;
  • set up routing functionality such that only outbound long-distance traffic is sent over the Unlimited Service; or engage in any other conduct which is fraudulent or results in significant network congestion, or degradation.

We consider your use of our Unlimited plan to be “abusive” and subject to immediate termination or adjustment if you utilize:.

  1. Autodialing
  2. Continuous, repetitive or extensive call forwarding
  3. Continuous call session connectivity
  4. Fax broadcasting
  5. Fax blasting
  6. Telemarketing

Any other activity that would be inconsistent with reasonable personal, residential and business use patterns, causes network congestion or jeopardizes the integrity of JVoIP Telecom’s network.

You understand and agree that this list of prohibited uses is meant to be illustrative and should not be considered exhaustive. All determinations related to violations of this Acceptable Use Policy will be made by JVoIP Telecom in its sole, reasonable discretion. JVoIP Telecom reserves the right to change or modify the terms of the AUP at any time, effective immediately when posted to the JVoIP Telecom website. Customer’s use of the JVoIP Telecom Services after changes to the AUP are posted to the JVoIP Telecom website shall constitute acceptance of any changed or additional terms. If you have a complaint about abuse or a breach of this AUP please contact a JVoIP Telecom representative.
