2. Service Order Procedure.
(a) To order a Service, Customer must execute an Order provided by Carrier. Customer may order additional Services from time to time by executing additional Orders. Additional orders that exceed the contract capacity or are not covered by the contract will be charged seperately. Upon receipt of an executed Order, Carrier will email an order acknowledgment letter to Customer. Within five (5) business days following the issuance of the Order acknowledgement letter, Carrier will either: (1) accept the Order by emailing a Firm Order Commitment (“FOC”) date to Customer; (2) request clarification of information on the Order; or (3) reject the Order. Carrier shall be under no obligation to accept an Order.
(b) After installing a Service, Carrier will email an Order completion notification to Customer. If Customer does not notify Carrier in writing within five (5) business days following receipt of the Order completion notification that the Services do not conform to Carrier’s specifications (with evidence of such non-conformance included in the notice), or if Carrier has not performed the acceptance testing by the FOC date due to Customer’s failure to satisfy any of its obligations under this MSA relating to installation, or if Customer begins using the Service for any purpose other than testing, the Service shall be deemed accepted, and such date shall constitute the “Service Activation Date”.
(c) Each Service Term shall commence on the Service Activation Date and shall continue for the period of months specified in the applicable Order, and thereafter shall continue for twelve (12) months unless and until terminated by either party upon ninety (90) days’ prior notice to the other party. In case both parties agree in writing in the Service Order to a month-to-month renewal after the Initial Service Term, the service may be subject to a price increase of 30% starting on the first month of the month-to-month renewal term. In any case, a 90-day previous notice is required for termination of a Service Order.
(d) In case of conflict between the provisions of the relevant Service Order and this MSA, the Service Order shall prevail. For all other matters in which the Service Order is silent or not in conflict with the MSA, this MSA will be enforced and will govern the Service Order.
3. Billing and Payment.
Customer shall pay the Charges for the Services without deduction, setoff or delay. Beginning on the Service Activation Date, Carrier will invoice Customer monthly in advance, and all amounts shall be due and payable no later than thirty (30) calendar days following the invoice date or within the period stipulated in the Order. Pricing on each Order includes all applicable discounts. A Monthly Recurring Charge for any period that is less than a full month shall be a prorated portion of the Monthly Recurring Charge based on the actual number of days in such month.
(a) Past due balances are subject to a two percent (2%) fee plus an interest charge of one point five percent (1.5%) per month or the maximum lawful rate allowable under applicable state law, calculated from the first day after the due date of the invoice until the date of payment and Carrier may suspend the services for late payment after notificating the Customer in writting.
In case of a dispute in the charges invoiced, Customer shall pay the part of the invoice not in dispute and communicate EdgeUno in writing about the charges in dispute, indicating the nature and reason of the dispute and evidence to support the claim. All claims regarding disputed charges must be submitted by Customer within sixty (60) days following receipt of the invoice on which the disputed charges appear. All claims not submitted to EdgeUno within such time frame will be deemed waived. In case the dispute is determined to be unfounded, unwarranted or that the charges were invoiced correctly, Customer will pay such charges within ten (10) days of the notice of dispute resolution.
In any case, EdgeUno may charge from Customer all costs, including attorney’s fees, incurred by EdgeUno to collect such past due payments. Automatic compensation or deductions of any kind are not allowed.
(b) In the event that additional exceeding capacity is delivered to the Customer willfully or accidentally, and this capacity is utilized by the Customer, the Customer agrees to be invoiced and pay for the herein capacity if no objection is documented by the Customer within the initial ninety days.
(c) At any time during the Term, if Customer has failed to make two (2) payments when due in accordance with this Section 3, Carrier may require Customer to remit all payments by electronic funds transfer via Automated Clearinghouse (“ACH”) debits initiated by Carrier. Customer agrees to execute from time to time all appropriate documentation reasonably requested by Carrier to give effect to this Section.
(d) If Customer is purchasing Carrier’s burstable Service, Customer will have a minimum bandwidth commitment assigned for a given port (the “Bandwidth Commitment”). The Bandwidth Commitment is agreed upon in the Order and is the minimum amount of bandwidth that will be charged to Customer each month at the base Service price, even if not fully used by Customer during a given month. Customer may burst up to the maximum bandwidth that can be carried on a given port, e.g. 1,000 Mbps for a Gig-Ethernet port, except otherwise stipulated in the Order Form. If Customer exceeds the Bandwidth Commitment on any burstable port in any given calendar month, Customer agrees to pay the additional per Gig charge for excess bandwidth usage over the Bandwidth Commitment as indicated in the Order Form. Such excess bandwidth usage is calculated by Carrier as the difference between Total Bandwidth Usage and Bandwidth Commitment, where Total Bandwidth Usage is determined by collecting bandwidth usage samples every 5 minutes throughout the month for each port and determining the 95th percentile of usage as indicated in the Order Form. Only one sample is captured for each 5 minute period, even though two samples are collected - one for inbound utilization and one for outbound utilization. The higher of the two samples is retained. For partial months, the total number of samples for the calendar month is used; for samples where there is no usage, 0 is the recognized value. For example, in a 30-day billing period, 8640 samples are collected (12 samples/hour x 24 hours/day x 30 days) and listed from highest to lowest. The highest 5% or 432 samples are discarded (representing the top 5% of usage levels). The highest remaining sample (sample 433 in this example) is used to determine Total Bandwidth Usage.
(e) Annual Price Adjustment. Upon conclusion of the first twelve (12) months of service, EdgeUno shall automatically implement a 5% increase to the MRC. This automatic increase will be applied starting on the first day after the initial 12 months of service and will take place every 12 months thereafter.
(f) Customer accepts that the terms and conditions on the price and form of payment of the service can be changed at any time, for which only the publication of the new conditions on www.edgeuno.com will suffice.
(a) All stated charges herein do not include, and Customer agrees to pay, any and all applicable Taxes (other than taxes on Carrier’s net income), including without limitation, all sales, use, value-added, excise, franchise, property, commercial, gross receipts, license, privilege and other taxes, levies, duties, fees, and tax-related surcharges (including the Universal Service Fund surcharge or similar international jurisdiction surcharge) and those charges resulting from Regulatory Activity, whether charged to or against Carrier or Customer with respect to the sale or use of the Services or the facilities provided by Carrier. If the Customer shall be required by applicable law to deduct or withhold any taxes from or in respect of any payment under this agreement, the payment shall be increased as necessary, so that after making all deductions or withholdings, the amount received by the Carrier is that same that would be received if no deduction or withholding was required under law (gross-up). If applicable, Customer shall provide Carrier with appropriate tax exemption certificates demonstrating that it maintains tax-exempt status from collection of all or part of these types of charges.
(b) At Carrier’s request, Customer will take reasonable steps to minimize Taxes in accordance with all relevant laws, including specifically accepting Orders between Carrier’s Affiliates and Customer’s Affiliates such that, as appropriate for a particular geographic location, invoices are issued by Carrier’s local entity to Customer’s local entity.
(c) In the event that any change in law or change in the interpretation of law results in the imposition of any additional cost or expense upon Carrier in connection with providing the Services in order to comply with such law (including without limitation any requirement that Carrier contribute to any funds administered by or on behalf of any governmental authority), the Parties will negotiate appropriate price adjustments and amendments to this Agreement. If the Parties cannot reach an agreement within 30 (thirty) calendar days following Carrier’s notice regarding renegotiation, then Carrier may, on a prospective basis, following such thirty-day period, pass any increased costs to Customer.
5. Customer’s Use of the Services.

(c) Customer is responsible for obtaining and maintaining access rights to Premises and the building where the Premises are located during the applicable Service Term so that Carrier may install, repair, maintain, inspect, operate and remove Service components. If possible, Customer shall provide Carrier personnel access to Service components for maintenance activities twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week, on two (2) hours’ notice.

If Carrier performs Planned Maintenance during business days, it shall do so between 0:00 and 6:00 local time. Carrier shall attempt to minimize interruption to, or impairment of, a Service arising from the implementation of any such enhancement or upgrade.
