ClearTalk Fair Use Policy

This policy is designed to protect the quality and reliability of the ClearTalk service. In doing so it ensures all customers do not use our services in an excessive or unreasonable manner. Clear Broadband retain the right to vary the terms of the Fair Use policy at our discretion from time to time.

The Fair Use Policy applies to:

  • ClearTalk Starter ‘free’ local and STD (untimed) calls within ClearTalk network;
  • ClearTalk Standard ‘free’ local and STD (untimed) calls within ClearTalk network;
  • ClearTalk Cap ‘free’ local and STD (untimed) calls within ClearTalk network and external networks. Includes up to 300 local/std calls;

We may rely on our Fair Use Policy in circumstances where your usage of ‘flat rate’ or ‘free’ untimed call charges that form part of a pricing plan or promotional offer is deemed to be excessive or unreasonable.

Excessive Use

  • Clear Broadband considers excessive use to be a call duration of more than 90 minutes per call on the ClearTalk World pricing plan. And a call duration of 90 minutes per call (local or national) and/or more than 500 local and national calls per billing period (month) under the ClearTalk Cap and ClearTalk World plans.
  • Clear Broadband monitors average call duration.
  • Clear Broadband considers excessive use where your average call duration is 3 or more times the average of our customer base.

These plans are for residential use only. If you are an excessive user we may ask you to reduce your usage of these calls. If after our request your usage continues at an excessive level we may:

  • Charge you our standard timed International call rate for calls made to all or any of the 37 International destinations associated with the ClearTalk World plan ;
  • Charge you our standard ‘flat rate’ for untimed local or STD calls on either the ClearTalk Cap or ClearTalk World plan;
  • Change your plan.

b) Clear Broadband consider it unreasonable use of the service if you make or receive calls on our network other than for your own personal use. We further consider it unreasonable if your actions limit the ability of others to access the networks. These actions may include and are not limited to:
