You must read this ImpactConnect VoIP Service Schedule together with the VTCResidential and Small Business Terms and Conditions to understand the terms and conditions of your ImpactConnect VoIP Service.If there is any conflict between the VTC Telecom Terms and Conditions and the provisions set forth in this Service Schedule, the terms of this Service Schedule shall control.
1. Service Description
Impact Telecom’s voice over Internet Protocol Service is a residential and small business enhanced voice communication service that converts voice communications into Internet Protocol (IP) packets that are carried over Impact Telecom's IP network. It may be referred to as "voice over IP" or "VoIP." The Service includes direct-dialed calling, telephone number(s), and call management features or advanced features, which may be offered at additional cost. If the Service is fixed, it will function only in your home or office. If the Service is mobile or nomadic, it may function from any location where you can connect your device to a high-speed internet access service, broadband or DSL line. Our service may be subject to different regulatory treatment than traditional voice telecommunications service. This treatment may limit or otherwise affect your rights of redress before regulatory agencies.
Impact Telecom may list subscriber names and telephone numbers in printed directories and/or directory assistance databases, or may offer to withhold same from printed directories and/or directory assistance databases at additional cost.
Impact Telecom charges an additional monthly fee for international (non-Canadian) direct inward dial phone numbers (“DID”) for those customers who wish to order that feature. Monthly fees for international DID numbers vary and are available from Impact Telecom’s Customer Service Department. Customers that have international DIDs are provided with these numbers based on current Canadian and overseas regulations. These regulations are subject to change without notice and Impact Telecom may be required to discontinue this Service, without notice. Impact Telecom reserves the right to discontinue International DID services for any reason at any time and is only obligated to refund the pro-rated monthly fee.
The Add-on CellConnect feature allows you to access domestic and international long distance services from your mobile phone.
Special applications for the use of your VoIP Service from your mobile telephones, computers, smartphones, PDA's, tablets or pads can be purchased from Impact Telecom or from authorized manufacturers.
Impact Telecom, in its sole discretion, may add, modify, or delete components of the VoIp Service from time to time.
2. Facilities and Equipment Provided by Customer
ImpactConnect VoIP Service may require a regular touchtone landline telephone, which you must supply and which must be connected to an analog telephone adapter (“ATA” or “Vox Box”) to be provided by Impact Telecom, for which a cost may be charged, depending on plan.
Certain of our other services may be used with devices such as mobile telephones, computers, smartphones, PDA's, tablets or pads which you will be required to provide.
IN ORDER TO USE THE SERVICE, YOU MUST HAVE A HIGH-SPEED INTERNET SERVICE, BROADBAND OR DSL, WHICH IS NOT A PART OF THE SERVICE. You are responsible for subscribing and paying for your high-speed Internet access, broadband or DSL in order to use your Service. The quality of your Service is highly dependent on the data speed, quality and reliability of your high-speed Internet, broadband or DSL connection. It is your responsibility to report and resolve any quality and connectivity issues related to your high-speed Internet, broadband or DSL connection with your provider.
For certain mobile applications, a WIFI or other data connection (e.g. 3G/4G or LTE) is required, which we do not provide.
3. Registered Address; Fixed vs. Nomadic VoIP Service
We require you to provide the physical address (“Registered Location”) where you will be using our VoIP Service for 911 purposes. For E911 and basic 911, this address is used to route 911 calls to your local emergency center. When you initially provide your Registered Location, it can take up to 120 minutes to verify your address and activate 911 service at this address.
VoIP Service can be fixed or nomadic. If you subscribe to a fixed VoIP Service, you agree that neither you nor a third party will move your Equipment used for the ImpactConnect VoIP Service to any other physical location outside of the Registered Location where it was installed. ImpactConnnect VoIP fixed service is not designed to be nomadic and will not function properly if the Equipment is moved or altered. If you require the Equipment to be moved, you must contact Impact Telecom. Failure to do so may result in a failure of the Service and/or in Impact Telecom's termination of your Service.
If you subscribe to a nomadic ImpactConnect VoIP Service, remember that, unlike traditional telephone services, ImpactConnect VoIP Service is portable to any location with high speed Internet access. For example, you can have a New York number and receive calls in Atlanta. You can also take your equipment with you on a trip but, when you travel, unless your 911 call is made from inside inside Canada, the operator will not be able to route your call to the appropriate emergency personnel. If you subscribe to nomadic VoIP Service, if you move the VoIP Equipment or device to another location, you must update your Registered Location. You may register only one Registered Location at time. If you do not update your location, your 911 calls may be sent to an emergency center near your old Registered Location. When you update your location, it can take several hours to activate 911 service at the updated address.
4. Service Limitations
IMPORTANT SERVICE LIMITATIONS APPLY TO 911 AND E911 CALLS. (See the Section below titled “IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE 911 LIMITATIONS”)

9. Termination or Suspension of Service
We may suspend or terminate your ImpactConnect VoIP Service for any reason specified in the VTC Terms and Conditions. Any such suspension and termination is subject to such Terms, including this Service Schedule.
Without limiting other rights set forth in this Service Schedule, Impact Telecom may either terminate your ImpactConnect VoIP Service or transfer your ImpactConnect VoIP Service to a different telephone number without penalty, upon reasonable notice, if Impact Telecom stops providing ImpactConnect VoIP Service either generally or in your area, if at any time 911 service over ImpactConnect VoIP Service is not available, or for other reasons associated with the provisioning of 911 service to your premises.

10. IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE 911 LIMITATIONS
You must notify members of your household and other potential users of your VoIP phone service of the the following nature and limitations of 911 emergency calls.
ImpactConnect VoIP 911 service is different from traditional wireline 911 and cellular/wireless 911.
As noted above, we require you to provide the physical address (“Registered Location”) where you will be using our VoIP Service for 911 purposes. For E911 and basic 911, this address is used to route 911 calls to your local emergency center.
When you initially provide your Registered Location, it can take up to 120 minutes to verify your address and activate 911 service at this address. You will receive an email letting you know when 911 service is activated. (See Section 3 “Registered Address; Fixed vs. Nomadic VoIP Service above.”)
If you move this device to another location, you must update your address. You may register only one location at time. If you do not update your location, your 911 calls may be sent to an emergency center near your old address. When you update your location, it can take several hours to activate 911 service at the updated address. You will receive an email letting you know when 911 service is activated at the updated address.
ImpactConnect customers have access to Enhanced 911 (E911), basic 911 or our national emergency call center. With E911 service, when you dial 911 your ImpactConnect phone number and registered address is sent to the local emergency center serving your location, and emergency operators have access to this information in order to send help and call you back if necessary. With basic 911, when you dial 911, local emergency operators answering the call may not see your ImpactConnect telephone number or your registered address. The emergency center may not be equipped to receive, capture or retain your Impact Connect telephone number and registered address, so you must be prepared to give them this information. Until you give the operator your phone number, he/she may not be able to call you back or dispatch help if the call is dropped or disconnected, or if you are unable to speak. Once local emergency centers are capable of receiving our customers' information, we automatically upgrade customers with basic 911 to E911 service.
If you do not have access to either basic 911 or E911 for any reason, your 911 call will be sent to the Impact Telecom national emergency call center, where a trained agent will ask for your name, telephone number, and location, and then transfer you to the local emergency center nearest to your location.
Because VoIP Customers can move their VoIP phone between locations and because, for technical reasons, the emergency operator may not have their name, location or contact information available, VoIP Customers must immediately inform the emergency operator of their location and contact particulars any time they call 911. Until Customers are told to do so by an emergency dispatcher, VoIP Customers must not disconnect their 911 call. If a Customer is inadvertently disconnected, they must call back immediately.
In addition, VoIP phone service depends on Internet connectivity. In the event of Internet outages (including congestion)you may experience a failure, disruption or delay in your 911 service.
Also, if your service is disconnected or suspended due to non-payment, you may experience a failure, disruption or delay in your 911 service.
YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE TO ALL OF THE INFORMATION IN THIS SECTION 10 REGARDING THE LIMITATIONS OF 911 SERVICE OVER IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE AND THE DISTINCTIONS BETWEEN 911 SERVICE OVER IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE AND 911 SERVICE OVER TRADITIONAL WIRELINE TELEPHONE SERVICE. YOU AGREE TO ADVISE ALL INDIVIDUALS WHO MAY PLACE CALLS OVER IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE OF THE 911 LIMITATIONS DESCRIBED HEREIN.
IMPACT TELECOM MAKES NO WARRANTY THAT THE IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE FOR ACCESS TO 911 WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED, TIMELY, SECURE, OR ERROR-FREE OR BATTERY BACKUP POWER WILL BE SUFFICIENT TO MAINTAIN THE SERVICE THROUGHOUT ANY AND/OR ALL POWER OUTAGES.
911 SERVICE OVER THE IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE IS ONLY AVAILABLE AT YOUR REGISTERED LOCATION IN OUR RECORDS AT THE TIME THAT YOU MAKE THE 911 CALL, AND WHILE CONNECTED TO PROPERLY POWERED EQUIPMENT AND AFTER IMPACTCONNECT VOIP HAS BEEN ACTIVATED.
911 SERVICE OVER THE IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE WILL NOT FUNCTION IF YOUR EQUIPMENT FAILS OR IS NOT CONFIGURED CORRECTLY OR IF YOUR IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE IS INTERRUPTED OR NOT FUNCTIONING FOR ANY REASON, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IN THE EVENT OF A POWER OUTAGE (UNLESS YOU HAVE WORKING BACKUP BATTERY POWER), NETWORK OUTAGE, BANDWIDTH CONNECTION FAILURE, DELAYS THAT CAN OCCUR IN MAKING YOUR REGISTERED LOCATION AVAILABLE THOROUGH THE ALI DATA BASES OR DISCONNECTION OF YOUR SERVICE BECAUSE OF BILLING ISSUES. IF THERE IS A POWER OUTAGE, YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO RESET OR RECONFIGURE THE EQUIPMENT PRIOR TO BEING ABLE TO USE YOUR SERVICES, INCLUDING USE FOR 911 CALLING. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IMPACT TELECOM STRONGLY RECOMMENDS YOU MAINTAIN AT ALL TIMES AN ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF ACCESSING 911 SERVICES, SUCH AS VIA CELLULAR TELEPHONE SERVICE.
YOU ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND THAT IMPACT TELECOM WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSSES INCURRED DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY AS A RESULT OF SERVICE OUTAGE AND/OR INABILITY TO DIAL 911 USING YOUR IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE OR INABILITY TO ACCESS EMERGENCY SERVICE PERSONNEL FOR ANY REASON, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE 911 CHARACTERISTICS AND LIMITATIONS SET FORTH IN THIS DOCUMENT AND/OR THE CHARACTERISTICS, LIMITATIONS, AND/OR FAILURE OF THE 911 NETWORK ITSELF.
WITHOUT LIMITING ANY PROVISIONS OF THE TERMS OR THIS SERVICE SCHEDULE, YOU AGREE TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY, AND HOLD HARMLESS IMPACT TELECOM, ITS SUBSIDIARIES, AFFILIATES, OFFICERS, AGENTS, DIRECTORS, EMPLOYEES, AND ANY OTHER SERVICE PROVIDER WHO FURNISHES SERVICES TO YOU IN CONNECTION WITH THE IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE, FROM ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, LOSSES (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUE), LIABILITIES, DAMAGES, FINES, PENALTIES, DEMANDS, ACTIONS, COSTS, AND EXPENSES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, REASONABLE ATTORNEY FEES) BY, OR ON BEHALF OF YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY OR USER OF THE IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE, REGARDLESS OF THE NATURE OF THE CLAIM, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION CLAIMS RELATED TO 911 DIALING, ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION WITH ANY FAILURE OR OUTAGE OF IMPACTCONNECT VOIP SERVICE OR ANY FAILURE OR OUTAGE OF THE 911 NETWORK ITSELF.
