2.3 We try to complete all orders as soon as we reasonably can but if after we send you your Service Confirmation Email, there is a reason we can’t provide you with your Service, such as a problem with the installation we’ll let you know as soon as we reasonably can and we will end Our Agreement. We won’t charge you anything to end Our Agreement unless it is down to your fault (such as a failed credit check) or where it has been cancelled for an installation-related reason – paragraph 13. We may need to perform tests to check whether Services are available to you and we may need to temporarily deactivate your telephone line whilst we do this. We’ll tell you before we do this.

8. The Service
8.1 We will use reasonable skill and care in providing the Service to you but due to the nature of the internet we cannot guarantee that this will be continuous or error free.
8.2 To receive the Service you need to make sure that your equipment, such as your computer or device (tablet or mobile phone) will connect to the equipment by Ethernet or wi-fi connection.
8.3 You acknowledge that the actual speed and performance of the Service you experience will depend on a number of factors, some of which are outside of our control.

However, we will use our reasonable endeavours to inform you of any issues and attempt to resolve them as soon as it is reasonably possible. As some of our Service are provided over 3rd party networks, we will not be liable for faults outside of our control.
8.4 Faults with your Service or equipment must be reported to us as soon as possible. For the avoidance of doubt, any formal complaints raised to us will be investigated from the date the issue was first logged. In the event you are unhappy with the timeline to resolve the fault or the way the fault has been handled you can raise a complaint, see our ‘complaints code of practice here’.
8.5 Installation of some Services, including installation of equipment inside or outside of your home may require the consent of others.

8.10 You should always back up your data against loss and corruption, any loss in data that has not been backed-up will not be our responsibility.
9. Moving Premises
9.1 If you are planning to move home, please contact our support team at [email protected] and we’ll tell you what options you have for your Service and what fees you may have to pay.
9.2 We can only provide our services at your new home if it’s already installed with our apparatus (see paragraph 12.1) or it’s in an area where we can install this immediately – we can let you know about this when you tell us about your move. If you purchase any of our Service for your new home, you’ll be treated as a new customer. This means you’ll have to go through the ordering process again, you may be charged for any installation work and the minimum period for your new Service will start when that Service is activated at your new home.
9.3 If you purchase a like for like Service from us at your new home we may be able to reduce or waive any early termination charge that applies to your existing Service if you’re ending it within its minimum period. If you choose not to, or are unable to purchase any or our Services for your new home, you’ll have to pay the early termination charge that applies to your existing Service if you’re ending it within its minimum commitment period. We’ll let you know how much this will be when you tell us about the move.
9.4 To end your existing Service you’ll need to give us 30 days’ notice in writing in accordance with paragraph 14 – this can be done by emailing [email protected].
10. Our rights to suspend or end the Service
10.1 We may suspend, restrict or disconnect any, or all, of the Service if:
(a) our network breaks down or needs maintenance, enhancement or emergency work (we aim to provide as much notice to our customers as possible in the event of such works);
(b) we are no longer able to provide a Service (or any part of it);
(c) we are required to do so for legal or regulatory reasons or comply with an order, instruction or request of Government, an emergency services organisation or other competent administration, legal or regulatory authority;
(d) to make changes to the Service as requested by you or notified by us to you
(e) we believe your Service or your credit or debit card have been used fraudulently;
(f) you break or we reasonably suspect that you have broken any important term of our Agreement (including failure to pay your bill within 7 days of our reminder) and, if you are able to put things right, you have not done so within 7 days (or such other longer period as we specify) of us asking you to do so;
(g) you do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 7 days of us reminding you that payment is due;
(h) you or anyone you authorise to deal with us on your behalf acts in a way towards our staff or agents which we reasonably consider to be inappropriate.
10.2 Where we suspend, restrict or disconnect a Service, Our Agreement will continue [unless terminated in accordance with paragraph 14 and unless the suspension is under clauses 10.1(a), (b) or (c)] we may require you to pay your fees and our reasonable costs for suspending, restricting or disconnecting your Service and resuming them.
11.1 Before you can use the Service, we have to install all of our apparatus (which includes our sockets, cabling, switches, poles, ducts and any other necessary network apparatus). We will not be liable for loss of Service or damage if you choose to use your own equipment.
11.2 If your property isn’t already suitably installed with our apparatus, you’ll need to arrange an installation visit with our engineers – we, or one of our representatives will contact you to do this soon after your Service Confirmation Email is sent (usually within 2 working days).
11.3 You can also contact customer services where you’ve already got a working Be Fibre socket connected to our network but would like another one in a different location at your property. They can arrange for an engineer to call you to arrange an installation visit and this may incur an additional fee.
11.4 When we, or one of our representatives contacts you to arrange any installation work, they’ll ask you some questions about the layout of your property. This helps them work out in advance some of the details of the installation work needed. Depending on your answers they will:
(a) arrange a date for a standard installation (comprising of a maximum of 15 metres external cabling, 10 metres internal cabling and a router), for which there will be no charge (though it might turn out that on visiting your property, the engineer realises a bespoke installation is needed (see paragraph 11.8);
(b) tell you that we can’t install at your property, (in which case, unfortunately, we’ll have to end Our Agreement – we won’t charge you anything if this happens and will refund any amounts you’ve already paid); or
(c) tell you that we can’t install at your property as a standard installation free of charge but that we may be able to carry out a bespoke installation depending on what the engineer finds on visiting your property. We won’t go ahead with the installation until you confirm that you agree with the route the installation work will take and that you agree to pay the bespoke installation fee that we’ll charge for it (see paragraph 11.8). We won’t be able to tell you this unless our engineer visits. If you decide not to go ahead (either before or after the first engineer visit related to the installation work), then we’ll end Our Agreement – this means you won’t be charged anything and we’ll refund any amounts you’ve already paid.
11.5 The engineer may only realise following a visit to your property that we can’t install. This may be due to technical, health and safety or other practical reasons. If this is the case, we’ll end Our Agreement, you won’t be charged anything and we’ll refund any amounts you’ve already paid.
11.6 If the information you gave the engineer about your property on the call turns out to be wrong and as a result we can’t install at your property (which includes if you don’t want to pay a bespoke installation fee (see paragraph 11.8) for work that would be needed to install), we’ll end Our Agreement and we can charge you an engineer visit fee which is set out in the Price Guide but you won’t be charged for anything else. We’ll also refund you any amount you’ve already paid beyond what you owe us.
11.7 If you’re able to have a standard installation we’ll make every effort to accommodate your preference as to the route the installation work will take. If you decide you’re not happy with it, we may discuss a bespoke installation with you (see paragraph 11.8). If you don’t agree with our proposed route for the bespoke installation (again we’ll try our best to take your preferences into account) and/or don’t want to pay the bespoke installation fee that will apply, we’ll end Our Agreement, you’ll only be charged an engineer visit fee and we’ll refund any amount you’ve already paid beyond what you owe us for the engineer visit.
11.8 It might be that an engineer can only tell if a bespoke installation is needed once they’ve visited your property. We won’t go ahead with any bespoke installation work until:
(a) we’ve told you the route that installation work will take (we’ll make every effort to accommodate your preferences);
(b) we’ve told you how much the bespoke installation fee will be; and
(c) you confirm in writing either to the engineer present or by email to us that you’re happy with the installation route we proposed and agree to pay the bespoke installation fee.
If you don’t do this (or you tell us that you don’t want to go ahead) then we’ll end Our Agreement, you won’t be charged anything, and we’ll refund you any amount you’ve already paid.
11.9 Unless you’ve specifically agreed with us otherwise, you (or a responsible adult that you’ve expressly confirmed to us in writing is authorised to make decisions about the installation on your behalf) must be present at your property for the first engineer visit related to any installation work. This is so that you (or the adult authorised to act on your behalf) can approve the route the installation will need to take or in case the work will involve anything bespoke. You’ll need to agree specifically to any bespoke work (and the fees for it) with us, as mentioned in paragraphs 11.4(c) and 11.8.
11.10 If your installation is for your initial connection to your Service, then once the work is complete, we’ll provide you with our equipment. If our engineer is already at your property for installation work, he/she can set up our equipment up for you. Otherwise, our equipment comes with written instructions to help you do this yourself. If you’d prefer not to, we can send an engineer to set it up, but you’d have to pay an engineer visit fee for this which is set out in the Price Guide.
12. Engineer Visits
12.1 Certain equipment may need to be installed by an engineer in connection with the provision of your Service. We may charge for engineer visits which we will tell you about before the visit.
12.2 Please note if you agree to an engineer visit, someone over 18 must be present for the visit. We reserve the right to walk away from a job if this is not the case and charge you for an engineer visit fee.
12.3 If you do not allow us access to your property to install the Service as arranged and/or equipment cannot be delivered to you (and you do not have a good reason for this) we may charge you additional costs incurred by us as a result, including an Engineer Visit Fee. You will be told about these fees prior to the visit.
12.4 You must provide a minimum of 2 working days’ notice if you wish to cancel an engineer appointment. You may be charged an Engineer Visit Fee if such notice isn’t provided.
12.5 If we need to cancel or change the time of an engineer visit, we’ll give you as much notice as we can.
12.6 If you ask us to upgrade a Service, but don’t consent to necessary engineering work, you’ll stay on your current Service.
12.7 If we perform engineering work at your property, we won’t reverse this work when your Service ends.
13.1 You may need to use certain necessary equipment provided by us to receive a Service, which may include a router. We remain the owner of any such equipment. We will only provide you with the equipment we tell you about in your Service Confirmation Email. Other equipment may be available at an additional cost. We can’t guarantee that the Service will work with equipment other than ours.
13.2 You agree that in order to provide a Service to you we can:
(a) install, keep and use any necessary equipment at your home;
(b) enter your premises for the connection, maintenance, modification, replacement or removal of any such equipment; and
(c) if applicable, connect remotely to manage, repair or upgrade the equipment.
13.3 We are under a legal duty to supply equipment that is in conformity with our Agreement. Please inspect the equipment and let us know about any issues within 7 days of receiving it. To contact us, please see paragraph 20 below.
13.4 Any equipment being returned to us is your responsibility until it arrives with us. If we don’t receive it we may charge you for it.
13.5 At the end of the minimum period the router will no longer fall under warranty therefore we will not be liable to rectify any fault in, or replace, a router if a fault is diagnosed outside of the warranty period for such router.
13.6 In the event the router fails for an unknown reason the equipment must be sent back to us. A replacement router will be sent until we test and conclude the reasoning for the router failure. In the event we conclude the fault was caused by you we reserve the right to charge any costs incurred to replace the router.
13.7 You are responsible for loss of, theft of, or physical damage to the router and in such circumstances we may charge you for this.
13.8 At the end of Our Agreement, you will return any equipment to us.
13.9 You agree to notify us by calling our technical team if the router is lost, stolen or damaged. Failure to do so may result in you being liable for any losses arising as a result.
13.10 You have the right to reconfigure the router to meet your local network requirements however we will not be liable for any security breaches or impacted performance.
13.11 In instances where a fault is diagnosed with the optical network termination equipment we will take the appropriate action to resolve the fault at no cost to you. Typically network equipment faults can be dealt with remotely without the need for an engineer visit.
13.12 If we deem the fault to the network equipment is caused by abuse or negligence, we may charge you for the repair or replacement cost of the network equipment, along with engineering costs incurred to resolve the fault.
13.13 Some network equipment does not belong to us and is owned by 3rd party suppliers, any fees we incur may be passed to you if we deem you caused the fault.
14. Ending your Service or Our Agreement
14.1 Unless you’re within your 14-day cancellation period (see paragraph 3.1), or you do not agree with proposed changes to the contract (see paragraph 19.1) if you want to end Our Agreement (or any Service we provide you under it) you’ll need to give us 30 days’ notice. In any case, you can let us know by calling our support team on 0330 088 8383.

14.2 During this notice period, we’ll carry on providing your Service and charging you for it.
14.3 If you end our Agreement, you must pay any outstanding fees up to the end of your notice period.
14.4 If you cancel your Service and/or Our Agreement before the expiry of the minimum period applicable to your Service (and not during the cooling off period) you will have to pay an early termination charge applicable to the fees that would have been payable for full length of the minimum period. We will tell you how much this will be before you cancel.
14.5 If you have asked us to cancel your Service with us but change your mind and want to retain your Service, you can reverse the cancellation, without interruption to your Service and without incurring any additional fees, up to 10 working days before the date your Service is due to be terminated whereupon our Agreement will also be terminated.
14.6 If we end Our Agreement in accordance with paragraph 14.8 below (including for non-payment of fees) within the minimum period, you may have to pay an early disconnection fee to compensate us for our losses for ending the Service early. This will be equal to the fees that would have been payable for the full length of the minimum period should have continued for. Please see be-fibre.co.uk for details of early disconnection fees/cancellation fees.
14.7 You may end our Agreement immediately by notice in writing if you’ve experienced a total loss of your Service (which doesn’t relate to us suspending or restricting it under these Terms) for 30 continuous days and you told us about the problem as soon as it happened. In these circumstances, you do not have to pay an early termination charge.

(i) we are specifically entitled to do so under any other paragraph of our Agreement.
14.9 If you fail to return or make available for removal any item of the equipment which we have provided to you, you may have to pay extra charges for such equipment, including the replacement cost or reasonable recovery costs as set out in the Price Guide. In addition to our other rights, we reserve the right to bring legal proceedings against you for the return of the equipment.
15. Our liability to you

For example, under that Act if we have not exercised reasonable skill and care in providing the Service to you or where goods/digital content provided to you are faulty or do not match their description, then you have the right to ask us to fix a problem (where this is possible) or to receive a reduction in price.
16.2 For more details on your rights as a consumer please visit the Citizens Advice website at www.citizensadvice.org.uk.
16.3 Nothing in your agreement affects these legal rights.
17. How we use your information
17.2 We reserve the right to email service announcements to you in connection with the Service.
18. Monitoring Communications
18.1 If requested to do so by a government or law enforcement body, we may monitor communications using the Service including, without limitation, any content or material transmitted over the Service.
18.2 We reserve the right to record any and all calls between you and any member of our staff to enable us to monitor the quality of our services, to ensure compliance with our regulatory obligations and procedures, in order to prevent or detect crime or to ensure that you are using your Service in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy.
19. Other important terms
19.1 Nothing in Our Agreement and no action taken by you or us pursuant to Our Agreement shall constitute, or be deemed to constitute between us and you, a partnership, association, joint venture or contract of employment, or authorising you to act as agent for us. You shall not have authority to make representations for, act in the name of, or otherwise bind us in any way.
19.2 You may not assign, transfer or delegate Our Agreement or your rights and obligations hereunder without our prior written consent. We may without restriction assign, transfer or delegate our Agreement and any rights and obligations hereunder, at our sole discretion to any third party. This may mean that different companies are responsible for providing the Service under our Agreement. This will not affect how much you pay and the company or companies providing the Service will still be obliged to provide the Services in accordance with Our Agreement. It may mean that a different company is legally responsible for the provision of the Service. Payment requests and invoices will clearly set out which company or companies are legally responsible for the Service.
19.3 Our Agreement is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms except for our group companies.
19.4 Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
19.5 If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking Our Agreement, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the Service, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
19.6 Our Agreement represents the entire understanding between you and us in relation to the Service and supersedes all other written or verbal representations, statements or agreements made by either you or us relating to the Service.
19.7 You shall keep as confidential all information disclosed to you by, or on behalf of us, which could be reasonably considered to be confidential. This shall include, but not be limited to, all information disclosed by us to you which relates to our business which is not in the public domain. You shall not use any information so provided other than to perform your obligations under Our Agreement. All information (and copies of it) shall be immediately returned to us on termination or cancellation of Our Agreement.
19.8 Our Agreement is governed by English law and you can bring legal proceedings in respect of your Service in the English courts.
