Unplan Wireless and Unplan Netflix Wireless Terms / Offer Summary

When you sign up for Unplan, we both agree to these Plan Terms. That includes any updates made along the way. Remember, it’s also a good idea to be across the General Terms – these apply to everyone using Spark services for personal use. The Mobile and Wireless Terms apply to you too.

Service Overview

Service Description

  1. Unplan is a broadband plan that flexes with you. Based on your usage each month, you’re automatically moved between three price tiers. This means you have the freedom to use more data when you want to, and to save money when you use less data.
  2. With Unplan, you can choose to add a landline. You can also choose to upgrade to Unplan Wireless Netflix.

Availability

  1. Unplan and Unplan Netflix is not available in all areas and eligibility criteria applies. Take a look at the address checker to see what is available to you. Check your address
  2. If you are eligible for Unplan, Spark will select wireless as the most appropriate technology for you to use Unplan based on:
    1. the network technologies available at your address; and
    2. the usage patterns you indicate to us during the setup of the Unplan or Unplan Netflix service at your address.
  3. If either of the factors listed above changes during the term of your agreement, we may change your broadband (at our absolute discretion) to an alternative technology or a new plan.

Service Charge

  1. The monthly price for each type of Unplan over wireless is set out below and on our broadband plans and pricing schedule. View the plans and pricing schedule
  2. Your monthly charges will vary depending on how much data you’ve used. So, whenever we invoice you for Unplan, it’ll be for the previous month’s usage.

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. We’ve covered this at clause 6.6 of our General Terms.
  2. On Unplan over wireless, these Unplan or Unplan Netflix services are delivered via Spark’s wireless network. So that we can manage network traffic:
    1. For most Unplan wireless customers, if your data usage exceeds 350GB in one month or 300GB a month for three consecutive months, we may change you (at our discretion) to fibre or a different plan; but
    2. If you’re on Unplan Metro (available at eligible addresses only), 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. If you engage in overly excessive or unreasonable usage, we will contact you. If this usage continues, you will be given the choice to move to fibre or a new plan.
  3. If you consider that the change to fibre or the new plan under clause 14 has a negative impact on you or your use of the service (or new service) you can exercise your right to terminate the service and no early termination fee will apply.

Fair Use

  1. You need to use our services fairly – we’ve set out our rules on this at clause 2.6 of our General Terms. There's also the Fair Use Policy for Unplan Metro which we've set out at clause 16 of these terms.

 

Effects on Other Services

  1. Your modem requires mains power. So, if there’s a power cut your broadband service won’t be available and you won’t be able to use it to contact emergency services. Make sure you have a charged mobile phone handy to use in a power cut in case of emergency. If you have existing services you’re planning to use with your 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. Advise the provider of those services that your Unplan Wireless or Unplan Netflix Wireless service is delivered over wireless broadband (4G) technology to ensure their service is compatible with wireless technology.
  2. If you want to make calls from a landline (including 111 calls), you’ll need to sign up for Unplan with a landline. Your landline will run over wireless.
  3. If you’ve ordered Unplan with a landline, it’s possible your existing landline will be disconnected for a few hours when your Unplan connection is set up.

Other Charges

  1. If you choose to have a landline, from the start of your Unplan service all your national and international calls will be provided and invoiced by Spark. Local calls are free. We charge for national, international and mobile calls, but have a range of calling plans to suit most people.
