Connection Speed and Service Levels
ADSL, Wireless and VOIP is provided as a best-effort service and up time and connection speeds cannot be guaranteed. During any technical failure, modification or maintenance of the service provided, C-Way Computers will always use all reasonable and to the best endeavors to resume the service as soon as possible. This excludes upstream provider infrastructure that is not within the control of C-Way Computers.
ADSL and Wireless Internet connection speeds are not guaranteed. Connection speeds are sold as “up to” products. This means that if you purchase a 2Mb connection, the fastest connection you will get will be 2Mb. This does not mean you “will have” a 2Mb connection to the internet. As service providers cannot guarantee connection speeds, it always remains a “best effort”connection. Data transfer speeds are subject to upstream providers and network utilization over a license excempt frequency that is free to use by everyone and therefor no guarantees are possible. Speed and quality is determined by “Radio Frequency” in use by all Wireless internet users. This is from our own network and from other wireless suppliers of which we have limited control over. For this reason Speedtests does not consider nor reveal your current usage on you line but merely test traffic flow possibilities at that specific moment the test was conducted. This is true for all ADSL Capped, ADSL Uncapped, and Wireless Internet Connections regardless of the Internet Service Provider you are using. Kindly be aware of this before you lodge a complain about the “Connection Speed” you get.

ADSL Lines remain the property of Telkom SA Limited, installations and repairs remain their responsibility. ADSL Line sizes are supplied at the maximum stable speed available that is requested by the customer, the Telkom SA Ltd network is supplied as a best effort network and therefore service cannot be guaranteed.

Once this credit has been issued, the customer’s account will be credited accordingly. C-Way Computers DSL PTY (Ltd) will on behalf of our customer as far as possible deal with Telkom SA Limited on the customer’s behalf. Any credit due to the customer by Telkom SA Limited after the transfer of their ADSL Line to C-Way Computers DSL PTY (Ltd) remains the responsibility of Telkom SA Limited and the customer will need to converse with Telkom SA Limited directly to arrange this if not done automatically. The activation of a new line is dependent on the exchange being ADSL ready as well as ports being available, the activation of a new line, cancellation, upgrade/downgrade or transfer is dependent on Telkom SA Limited as such cannot be guaranteed by C-Way Computers CC. Telkom SA Limited do not allow two actions to be performed at the same time, we are therefore not able to perform a transfer and an upgrade/downgrade at the same time, we need to process each action separately.
The customer will continue to be billed by Telkom SA Limited for the telephone/fax line rental and telephone/fax calls as well as any other services provided to them directly by Telkom. Should your line be suspended by Telkom SA Ltd, the ADSL service on your line will not be usable until Telkom SA Ltd have lifted the suspension on the line. The ADSL line rental will be billed to the customer by C-Way Computers CC together with any other services provided to them. On application for a new line or a transfer of a line the full amount for the ADSL line size chosen will be billed and debited, once the new line, transfer has been completed we will credit the original amount paid and a prorata amount will be billed, the balance will be used towards your renewal for the following month. In the case of an upgrade/downgrade of a line, we will bill you a prorata amount once the upgrade/downgrade of the ADSL Line has been completed and this amount will be debited to your nominated bank account/credit card, in the case of a downgrade any credit amount due will be used towards the following months renewal. Should your debit order payment against your bank account or credit card be returned (initial and monthly) unpaid the ADSL Line will be suspended immediately, failure to pay the outstanding amount within 7 days will result in the ADSL Line being transferred back to Telkom SA Limited which will result in your telephone/fax line account being charged for the ADSL Line by Telkom SA Limited.
Cancellations need to reach us by 4pm, no later than 7 working days before the end of the month, all cancellations received after this will only be cancelled at the end of the following month and the account holder will be liable for the ADSL line cost.
Please also note that ADSL lines are not cancelled during the month but only at the end of the month, if you wish to have your line cancelled during the course of a month you will not be refunded any monies already paid for that month.
Please be aware that Telkom do not allow us to submit cancellations for a specific date. In an effort to avoid the cancellation or transfer back of the line taking place before the last day of the month we submit these applications on the last 2 working days of every month. It is possible that the cancellation/transfer back will be actioned before the last day of the month or only take place the following month.
