Billing and Payment
Connect will provide the Customer with a monthly bill setting forth the charges incurred for the use of the Services. Connect makes the Customer's bill available over the Internet. In that case, the Customer's responsibility is to create an online account management profile, subscribe to electronic bill notifications, and check the online account every month for the Customer's bills. Regularly recurring charges are billed in advance, and expenses incurred on a per-use basis are billed in arrears. Suppose the Customer's bill is lost or does not receive a bill. In that case, the Customer is still responsible for making the required payment to Connect.
The services are provided to the Customer subject to the payment of all applicable service rates and any additional charges identified to the Customer at the time the Customer applied for the Services or otherwise in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, including installation and activation fees, together with all applicable taxes and government charges.
All bills are due in full on the due date specified on the bill. Charges not paid by the due date specified on the bill are assessed a late payment charge, calculated, and compounded monthly, of 2% per month (26.82% per year), calculated from the due date for those charges, which the Customer must pay in addition to all other amounts owing to Connect. Connect will charge $35.00 for each non-sufficient funds cheque or additional payment paid by the Customer and denied for any reason by a financial institution.
Administrative and collection charges may apply if the Customer's account goes into arrears, including because of returned or rejected payments or the Customer's failure to inform Connect of any change to the Customer's account information for pre-authorized The Customer is responsible for any costs, including legal fees and expenses, collection agency fees, or court costs, incurred by Connect to collect any amounts owing under these Terms and Conditions.
All charges and credits to the Customer's account shall be deemed validly incurred unless the Customer disputes the charge or credit within thirty (30) days after receiving the bill that includes the charge or credit.
Provided there is no deception to avoid payment. The Customer is not responsible for paying an unbilled or under-billed portion of a charge unless Connect correctly bills the charge within one (1) year from the date it was incurred. In these circumstances, Connect will not charge any interest on the amount of the unbilled or under-billed charge owing until the correct charge has been billed to the Customer's account.
The Customer will provide all information reasonably requested by Connect and complete any credit applications offered by Connect to investigate the Customer's creditworthiness. The Customer authorizes Connect to collect, use, disclose and rely upon the credit information supplied by the Customer, the information in credit applications and any data available from commercial credit reference services to assess the Customer's account.
Connect may require a security deposit from the Customer:
- before the Services are provided, if the Customer does not have a satisfactory credit history with Connect or does not provide other proof of creditworthiness sufficient to Connect; or
- at any time, this Agreement applies if the Customer has an unsatisfactory credit history with Connect because of the Customer's payment practices.
Connect may apply any portion of the security deposit against unpaid charges on the Customer's account at any time and, upon the termination of this Agreement or where the conditions justifying the security deposit no longer apply, will refund any outstanding security deposit retaining only the amount then owing on the Customer's account.
Your Payment and Late Fees
Payment is due in full as specified on your invoice. Connect will also charge you costs associated with paying a collections agency to collect unpaid balances from you and an administration fee for Connect to collect unpaid balances. Connect will charge $35.00 for each payment denied for any reason by a financial institution. Acceptance of payments (even if marked "paid in full") does not waive Connect's right to collect all you owe Connect. If Connect does not receive payment in full by the end of the billing month specified on your invoice, the Equipment could be deactivated.
If you think there has been an error in a charge posted, you must notify Connect within 30 days after the charge has been posted or within 45 days after receiving the invoice. If you fail to do so, the charge will not be adjusted.
You must pay all federal, provincial, and local taxes, fees, and other assessments that Connect is required by law to collect and remit on the Services and Equipment provided to you.

Tax exemptions generally will not be applied retroactively.

The Customer may terminate this Agreement at any time by notifying Connect at least five (5) business days before the first day of the month, in which case termination will be effective at 12:01 AM on the first day of the month, provided that, if the Customer terminates before the expiry of the Term, the Customer will remain liable for the payment of all charges that would otherwise have been payable to Connect for the remainder of the Term.

The Customer acknowledges and agrees that Connect shall not be responsible or liable to the Customer or any third party for any suspension, restriction, or termination of the Services.

There are gaps in coverage within Connect's estimated coverage areas that, along with other factors both within and beyond Connect's control (e.g., network problems, software, signal strength, your router, structures, buildings, weather, geography, topography, etc.), may result in dropped and blocked connections, slower data speeds, or otherwise impact the quality of Service. Services that rely on location information, such as 911 and GPS navigation, depend on your device's ability to acquire satellite signals (typically not available indoors) and network coverage.
