Fair Use Policy
Birchills Telecom’s policy towards Fair Usage is that customers should be able to use the service in an appropriate manner to meet their reasonable business needs. This includes calling both mobiles and landlines, as required but does not include premium rate (including 0845 numbers) or foreign numbers.
We do not think that it is fair usage if a Customer drives automated traffic through our network, for example, with power dialling or by automating traffic from a landline to mobiles via our network.
We also do not think it fair usage if a Customer resells or redistributes our service to other parties.
If a Customer’s usage is continually unfair, or is not consistent with the usage we would typically expect, we reserve the right to change customers to a metered package more suited for their usage.
In extreme cases we may suspend or terminate the Customer’s ability to access Birchills Telecom's service.
