This Agreement incorporates by reference the Rates and Charges applicable to the Bandwidth Plan and Equipment Plan selected by Customer while completing our on line signup form and set forth herein, and any Bandwidth Plan subsequently put into effect by Plexicomm and selected by Customer.

Plexicomm will provide the services provided herein (the "Service") to Customer upon the terms and conditions at the rates and charges specified herein or then in effect.

The Service provided by Plexicomm is "Fixed Wireless Internet Access" operating in the Unregulated Frequencies. The Service shall be available to Customer when within the effective working range of Plexicomm's wireless network. Service may be temporarily unavailable or limited because of capacity limitations, and is also subject to transmission limitations caused by atmospheric and other natural or artificial conditions adversely affecting transmissions. Services may also be temporarily interrupted or curtailed due to equipment modifications, upgrades, relocation, repairs, and similar activities of Plexicomm necessary for the proper or improved operation of the Service. As part of the service Plexicomm will provide access to the Internet to each device, which is directly connected to Plexicomm's network. Plexicomm is not responsible for providing Internet connectivity to any devices that are not directly connected to its Wireless Network or that share a connection to its network via a Local Area Network, nor is Plexicomm responsible to provide any networking services to the Customer other than Internet Access as previously stated.

Hardware, Installation and/or consultation, maintenance, or repair services are offered at an additional cost for Local Area Network configuration.

Customer hereby acknowledges that it understands that the bandwidth and connection speed represents that maximum bandwidth available to each customer and that its actual connection speed is likely to vary based on actual internet traffic and other uncontrollable internet backbone issues. Customer understands that Plexicomm provides no guarantee that the bandwidth and connection speed will be achieved during normal operation.

Plexicomm will take all reasonable steps to keep its service in full, working order. However, nothing in this agreement shall be construed as a guarantee of continuous, uninterrupted service. Plexicomm makes no guarantee against loss of business or loss of data, personal internet or PC security either by the reseller or its customers, due to downtime. Plexicomm controls access to the Plexicomm network. Plexicomm will perform due diligence to provide security for Customers, however, Customer PC security and protection from viruses, hackers, or any other possible invasive PC attacks is the sole responsibility of the customer.

If, in the professional opinion of Plexicomm, or its designee, adequate signal is available, this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect and the parties shall enjoy their rights and perform their duties as provided herein. If, however, in the professional opinion of Plexicomm, or its designee, adequate radio signal is not available, the Customer shall have the option to terminate this Agreement or enter into a new Subscriber Agreement. In the event the original Agreement is terminated, by the Customer, and the Customer does not enter into a subsequent or revised Subscriber Agreement, Plexicomm shall credit Customer's account for all amounts collected by Plexicomm, or its designee. In the event the original Subscriber Agreement with a particular customer is voided, and a new Subscriber Agreement is obtained by Plexicomm, or its designee, the amount collected pursuant to the original Subscriber Agreement shall be credited to the Customer's account and Plexicomm shall collect the balance due from the Customer, if any, prior to the activation of service.

If the amount due prior to activation pursuant to the revised Subscriber Agreement is less than the amount collected pursuant to the original Subscriber Agreement Plexicomm shall credit the Customer's account the difference.

The Service is designed and priced for residential customers and is not offered as a business solution, network server, or P2P peer-to-peer network server solutions. The Service is for use by Customer for any lawful purpose. The Service shall not be used to make foul or profane expressions, to impersonate another person with fraudulent or malicious intent, to contact or transmit information in any form to another person as to annoy, abuse, threaten, or harass such other person, or for any purpose in violation of law, or in such manner as to interfere unreasonably with the use of the Service by any of Plexicomm's users.

Customers shall be charged for the services provided by Plexicomm in accordance with the effective Bandwidth Plan. Sub-licensing to third parties or nearby neighbors is prohibited. Re-broadcasting, pirating, or sharing signal beyond the Customers residence is prohibited. Plexicomm reserves the right to monitor bandwidth of each account to ensure single party usage of the connection. Customer hereby agrees to pay Plexicomm $10,000 for each such violation.

Plexicomm may, however, assign all of its rights, duties, and obligations hereunder to any third party. The "Internet" connection provided by Plexicomm shall not be used/shared beyond the customers' property or business location. Customer agrees to not share this connection with other users through the use of any wireless network equipment not authorized by Plexicomm.
