Other Requirements

Traffic Management


  1. We manage traffic which may influence your broadband performance. This means 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. See clause 6.6 of our General Terms for more details.

Service Restrictions


  1. We have some service restrictions which may impact you. See clauses 6.6 – 6.10 of our General Terms for more details.

Fair Use



  1. If you're on Spark's Max Wireless Broadband plan a fair use policy applies. This means you cannot use the service in a way that is overly excessive or unreasonable. This policy is based on how most people use the service and helps us make sure everyone using it gets to enjoy it. We've set out our rules on this at clauses 2.6 and 14 of our General Terms.  

Effects on Other Services
















  1. Your modem requires mains 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.

  2. If you have existing services you're planning to use with your wireless broadband connection, you should check with the provider of those services to make sure they'll work. This could include medical alerts, monitored home alarms, and interactive features of Sky TV. Take care to advise your service provider that your broadband service is delivered over wireless broadband (5G) technology to ensure their service is compatible with wireless technology.
  3. If you want to make calls from a landline (including 111 calls), you'll need to add a landline for an extra $10 a month. Your landline will run over wireless. 
  4. If you've ordered Max Wireless Broadband with a landline, it's possible your existing landline will be disconnected for a few hours when your Max Wireless Broadband connection is set up.
