The availability targets referenced below do not account for scheduled outages on Innovative IoT’ carrier networks or events outside of Innovative IoT’ control, including, but not limited to, force majeure events or Customer equipment outages.
WIRELESS INTERNET AND DATA:
The throughput Customer receives will vary from carrier to carrier depending on a variety of factors such as tower site locations, signal strength, equipment used, internal wiring, Internet traffic, and other variables outside of Innovative IoT’ control. Due to this, Innovative IoT will not, and cannot guarantee download/upload speeds, or uptime availability. Also, any latency, jitter, or packet loss is NOT guaranteed.
In the case of a stationary connection: Innovative IoT does understand that issues can and do happen. If customer has multiple issues, within a 30-day time period, to a connection that is NOT mobile, customer can request a change to their connection. Customer must work with Innovative IoT to improve the situation and agree with Innovative IoT the new course of action. If that improvement involves multiple connections to the same site, then customer is financially liable for any increased data costs. Customer is also liable for other costs of improvement including Site Survey, Test Plan, Installation, Equipment, and all data used.
In the case of mobile connection:
Innovative IoT does understand that mobile issues can and do happen. If customer has multiple issues, within a 30-day time period, to a connection that is mobile, customer can request a change to their connection. Mobility adds to connection challenges and it may not be the fault of the equipment or the connection. Challenges such as busy towers, overloaded internet, equipment updates, and multiple other things that are completely outside of Innovative IoT’s control. Innovative IoT welcomes discussions on fixing the issue. Any proposed fixes will be done only at the approval of Innovative IoT. Customer must work with Innovative IoT to improve the situation and agree with Innovative IoT the new course of action. If that improvement involves multiple connections to the same site, then customer is financially liable for any increased data costs. Customer is also liable for other costs of improvement including Site Survey, Test Plan, Installation, Equipment, and all data used.
All Internet & Data Connectivity Services
Innovative IoT does not guarantee “ping times” for any product. Ping times are often misunderstood as indicative of throughput or speed of Customer’s line. If Customer has any questions or concerns regarding ping times or throughput, Customer should contact Innovative IoT Technical Support.
If Innovative IoT provides CPE, all Innovative IoT provided CPE is pre-configured for the service ordered. Support for the external configuration of Customer’s hardware (i.e., WAN configuration) comes with the service; however internal configuration for Customer’s private network (i.e., LAN configuration) is not supported by Innovative IoT. Innovative IoT cannot guarantee Customer’s hardware’s compatibility with Innovative IoT’ services or Innovative IoT’ ability to support it. If a technician visit is required to configure pre-owned or non-Innovative IoT provided hardware, an additional charge may be involved.
If a technician dispatch is necessary to repair any non-Innovative IoT initiated changes to the on-site equipment or wiring that renders the service inoperable, there will be a Technician Dispatch Fee. Dispatch Time spent on site and/or additional repairs may be billed per Innovative IoT’ discretion. This does not apply to dispatches needed for a repair due to normal service outages unless deemed necessary by Innovative IoT.
Other than as specifically described in these Terms of Service, Innovative IoT makes no guarantee or warranty of any kind. Innovative IoT does not warrant or guarantee that its service is fit for Customer’s particular purpose.
