2. Price.

A. General. The Subscriber shall pay to the Company the charges associated with the CPE and DSL rate plan selected within the KansasNet DSL Order Form, including without limitation, deposits, set-up fees, equipment purchase and/or rentals, service charges, etc., for the Term chosen within the KansasNet DSL Order Form.

B. Subscriber is responsible for provision of, operation of and maintenance of CPE and Subscriber’s Computer/Network Equipment. Service interruption due to failure of the Subscriber to provide working CPE will be billable as normal service usage.

C. Changes. Company will give Subscriber 30 days notice in the event of a change in Price. This notice may be sent by Company to Subscriber’s @kansas.net Email Address or by Postal mail to the Billing Address. If the Price changes during the Term, the Subscriber will be given opportunity to end the Agreement without penalty prior to the next Period of Service. If Subscriber does not opt to exercise this right to end the Agreement after the 30 days notice, but, before the next Period of Service (i.e. first day of the next calendar month), it will be assumed that Subscriber accepts the new Price for the remainder of the Term.

D. Price for Periods of Service is due to Company on the first day of the month. Subscribers with balances more than 5 (five) days overdue will be temporarily disabled until full payment is received. A $25.00 reconnect fee will be assessed on all disabled accounts. Returned checks will be charged a fee of $32.00. Except for the first Period of Service, monthly service is not prorated.

E. Taxes. Taxes and other fees as assessed by Federal, State, or Local Governments may apply. These taxes may begin, cease, or vary at any time during the Term of this Agreement based on changing Government laws/regulations. Company reserves the right to recover these Taxes from Subscriber in the manner defined by any applicable laws/regulations. These taxes and fees are not controlled by Company, and are therefore not considered part of Price for service. Changes to these taxes and fees are not considered to be a change in Price as described in section 2.C. of this document and are therefore not grounds for C. Changes. The prices for this service are found in the document titled “DSL Order Form.” 30 days notice will be given in the event of a price change.  If the price changes during the term of the agreement, the subscriber will be given opportunity to end the agreement without penalty prior to their next payment.

D. All periods of service shall begin on the first day of the month. Accounts more than 5 (five) days overdue will be temporarily disabled until full payment is received. A $10.00 reconnect fee will be assessed on all disabled accounts. Returned checks will be charged a fee of $25.00. Except for the first month of service, monthly service is not prorated.

3. Term and Termination.

Agreement commences upon Activation of Service and remains in effect for the selected Term, or until terminated as herein provided. Subscriber may terminate this Agreement upon thirty days advance notice. Advanced notice may be given by Subscriber to Company via an email to billing@kansas.net from Subscriber's KansasNet Email Account, or by filling out a KansasNet Cancellation Form, which can be attained from Company upon Subscriber request. Unless Company has increased Price within a Period of Service prior to Subscriber’s notice of termination or Subscriber has completed their Term. Subscriber shall pay to Company upon termination of DSL, an Early Termination Fee equal to the number of Period(s) of Service remaining in the Term multiplied by Price of DSL service as selected in the KansasNet DSL Order Form. Company shall have the right to suspend or terminate Agreement at any time without prior notice to subscriber. Subscriber also agrees that Company has the right to delete all data, files or other information that resides or is stored on the Company's Equipment, if the Subscriber's DSL with Company is terminated, for any reason, by either Company or Subscriber.
