Traffic management

 

  1. We might have to pause, restrict, end or slow performance of your service if it's necessary for us to protect our networks or manage traffic over our networks. This includes where the usage of our services is excessive and where we need to prioritise certain types of traffic over other traffic at times of congestion.

Fair use

 

  1. IYou need to use our services fairly – we’ve set out our rules on this at clause 2.6 of our General Terms. 

Effects on other services

 

  1. Fibre modems are reliant on power. This means the landline and devices such as medical alarms or cordless phones won't work in the event of a power cut. So, it's important to have a mobile phone handy for emergencies. If you or someone at your place, don't have a means to contact 111 during a power cut and are at particular risk of needing to call 111, you can register as a Vulnerable Consumer. If your application is successful, we will provide you with a way to call 111 during a power cut, at no cost to you. You can apply by filling out an application form. Find out more about Vulnerable Consumers at www.spark.co.nz/vulnerable 
  2. If you want to make calls from a landline (including 111 calls), you’ll need to sign up for Business Max Fibre with landline.  
  3. If you've ordered Business Max Fibre Broadband with a landline, it's possible your existing landline will be disconnected for a few hours when your Business Max Fibre Broadband connection is set up.
