(a) monthly Service Fees shall be billed in advance of each month’s Service, and toll and other usage charges including overages shall be billed in arrears;

(b) billing of Service Fees and other monthly recurring charges shall commence on the date that is seven days after Customer’s order of Subscription Services, or on the date RTMB provisions such Services, whichever is earlier;

(c) fees for Implementation and Professional Services and other one-time Service charges shall be billed upon order of the Services; and (d) shipping and related charges shall be billed upon shipment of the Equipment. Service Fees for any additional Subscription Services added during a calendar month shall be pro-rated based on the number of days billed during that month.


The initial provisioning process, which creates Customer’s unique account and enables Customer to log-in and access the Services, is generally completed within this seven-day period.

3.3 Payment and Credit Terms
Unless the Customer Agreement provides otherwise, all amounts due and payable under the Customer Agreement shall be payable via charge to the credit card, or ACH account provided by Customer, and payment is due 15 days from the invoice date (Net 15).

All Services provided to Customer on credit shall be subject to RTMB’s review and approval of Customer’s credit, and RTMB, in its reasonable discretion, may discontinue or limit Customer’s credit at any time, require a deposit or bank guarantee, or place a limit on the amount of charges that Customer can incur before making payment. By providing credit card, or ACH account information to RTMB, Customer authorizes RTMB to charge that account for all amounts due and payable hereunder in respect of the Services and Equipment ordered by Customer, and Customer agrees to notify RTMB promptly of any change to such information.

Unpaid balances are subject to a late payment charge of $25.00 and interest that accrues from the due date at the rate of 1.5% per month or the maximum amount permitted by applicable law.

3.4 Taxes Customer is responsible for paying all taxes, levies, imports, duties, charges, fees or similar governmental assessments, including value-added tax ( VAT ), sales, use, withholding, public utility or universal service taxes or fees, and emergency services surcharges (i.e., 911, E911, 999, etc.) assessed or assessable by any governmental, fiscal or other authority relating to the sale and provision of Services to Customer and Customer’s use of Services (collectively, Taxes ), other than those assessable against RTMB based solely on its income.

RTMB shall invoice Customer for all such Taxes that RTMB reasonably believes it has a legal obligation to collect and remit (or in respect of any obligations that RTMB is permitted to pass on to its customers, as in the case of universal service fund contributions and similar Taxes) under applicable Law, and Customer shall pay all Taxes so invoiced. Any Taxes set forth in a quote or Service Order shall be calculated by RTMB in good faith based on the service address or addresses provided by Customer, but shall be non-binding estimates only.

If Customer asserts an exemption from any Taxes, Customer shall deliver to RTMB a valid tax exemption certificate authorized by the appropriate taxing authority, and Customer shall be liable for any Taxes assessed prior to such delivery. In no event shall Customer make any deduction to any amount payable under the Customer Agreement for or on account of any Taxes and withholdings of any nature imposed by any governmental, fiscal or other authority, except as required by law. If Customer is required by Law to make any such deduction, it will (a) first notify RTMB of such obligation, (b) furnish RTMB with receipts evidencing remittance of the money, and (c) pay such additional amounts as are necessary to ensure receipt by RTMB of the full amount that RTMB would have received but for the deduction.

3.5 Disputed Charges Customer agrees to pay all charges due and payable under the Customer Agreement without counter-claim, set-off or deduction, other than amounts disputed in accordance with this Section

To dispute a charge, Customer shall provide notice by email to within thirty (30) days of the charge, setting forth the amount in dispute and the basis of the dispute in reasonable detail.

Failure to so dispute a charge within such 30-day period shall constitute an irrevocable waiver of Customers right to dispute the charge. The parties shall attempt to resolve the dispute in good faith for a period of 30 days from the notice. If any charges remain in dispute at the end of the 30-day period, Customer shall pay the full amount due within 10 days, otherwise RTMB may exercise any available remedies for breach (without regard to any further notice requirement or opportunity for cure under these Terms, which shall be deemed waived).

3.6 Third Party Services
RTMB may offer to bill, collect payment for services, and provide support (such as broadband, MPLS, etc.) provided to Customer by a third-party provider pursuant to a separate service contract between Customer and such third-party (Third-Party Services). Customer authorizes RTMB to bill, collect and remit to the Third-Party Service provider any amounts chargeable for Third-Party Services in accordance with the procedures applicable to Services under this Section 3. Customer acknowledges that: (a) RTMB makes no representations or warranties regarding, and shall have no responsibility or liability whatsoever for, Third-Party Services; (b) RTMB shall not be deemed a reseller of Third-Party Services; and (c) Customer shall look solely to the Third-Party Service provider for any remedies relating thereto.

3.7 Service Fees Rates;
Pricing Changes When RTMB and Customer enter into a Service Order for Customers initial order of Subscription Services in a country, the Service Fee rates specified in that Service Order establish the pricing for those Subscription Services in that country, and those rates shall not be increased for the duration of the then-current Term. Subject to the foregoing, RTMB may increase Service Fee rates during any Renewal Term, but no more than five percent (5%) above the rates in effect at the end of the preceding Term, unless
(a) RTMB gives Customer notice of such increase at least 60 days prior to the commencement of that Renewal Term or
(b) Customer materially reduces its quantity of Subscription Services. RTMB may increase Service Fees for a customer on Month-to-Month Service at any time, up to the then-applicable list prices. Except as provided in this Section 3.7, the rates and pricing for Services and Equipment ordered in a Service Order shall not constitute a commitment of RTMB to offer such rates and pricing for future orders.

3.8.1 Refund Policy
All prepaid fees and other payments by Customer under these Terms are non-refundable and non-creditable.

Promotions and discounts may not be used cumulatively or applied retroactively, and may be changed or discontinued by RTMB at any time in its sole discretion. In no event shall promotional pricing be guaranteed for a term longer than the term for which Customer has ordered the Services. Any promotional shipping rates (e.g. free shipping) provided in a Service Order shall only apply to the units of Equipment ordered in that Service Order.

Any reduction in the number of lines, seats or other units of Service or downgrading of Services (for example, to a Service Plan with a reduced monthly Service Fee base rate) shall be treated as a termination of Service for purposes of this paragraph, and the early termination charge shall be calculated based on the reduction in monthly recurring charges attributable to such reduction or downgrading. CUSTOMER ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE SERVICE FEE RATES OFFERED TO CUSTOMER ARE BASED UPON CUSTOMERS AGREEMENT TO PAY EARLY TERMINATION CHARGES HEREUNDER AND WOULD HAVE BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY HIGHER ABSENT SUCH AGREEMENT.

5.2.3 Disconnect Fees and Other Charges
The early termination charges in this Section 5.2 shall not apply to any Services that are subject to promotional terms that expressly waive, in writing, early termination charges or provide for disconnect fees to be paid in lieu of such charges. If such terms apply, Customer shall pay the disconnect fees (Fees and Charges) to these Terms in lieu of any early termination charges that would otherwise apply. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, upon early termination of Services, Customer shall also be liable for payment in full of the unpaid balance under an RTMB Extended Payment Plan or similar financing arrangement.

(i) disrupt or compromise the integrity or security of the RTMB Platform, the network of RTMB or any RTMB Partner, or the privacy of any RTMB customers or
(ii) cause imminent and material damage to RTMB or any RTMB Partner, but only for as long as reasonably necessary to mitigate the risk of such harm.
