Your Value Added Services which include your monthly service level agreement fee (SLA), your monthly telephone management service fee (TMS) and your professional voice recordings (PVR) is debited automatically from DSL Telecom on or before the 1st day of every month. The monthly services become active on installation of your physical phone system and the first payment will be deducted on or before the first of the upcoming month.The first debit will also be double debit which covers the set-up fee and also ensures that service is not disrupted should there be any payment challenges in future.
If you have a business fibre, microwave or voice product from Neotel, Neotel will bill you directly via debit order for the product from the time when the service is delivered to your premises. (ie a Neotel point on the wall). The onus is then on you the client to connect the Neotel service to your internal network (LAN). This may involve the specialised skill set of your IT person but in most cases DSL Telecom can help connect the service to your LAN. Your first bill may be quite high as it includes your NRC (Non-recurring installation cost) as well as your MRC (Monthly recurring cost) upfront for the coming month and any pro-rated MRC (monthly recurring cost) for the previous month if applicable.
If you have opted to take connectivity from Vox Telecom (VoIP, Internet, E-mail, Fax or Hosting) an additional debit order will come off on the 1st, 15th or 25th of the month directly billed from Vox Telecom. Cash/EFT accounts become due on the 1st and are payable before the 5th of the month.The amount due is payable directly to Vox Telecom on or before this date to avoid suspension of services.
Once DSL Telecom has physically delivered the hardware to your premises you as the client take ownership of the stock and therefore payment becomes due on this date. There are many factors that may hinder the solution being fully complete such as number porting, changes in connectivity and fibre installation lead times, please do not let this postpone final payment for the hardware
Yes. Your Vox VoIP service comes with a default call limit of R1500.00pm. This resets to zero on the 1st of each month. You can always top this up if you hit your call limit during the month but this can be a hassle. We suggest that if you expect that you will call more than this amount during any month that you send an e-mail now to email@example.com with a limit increase request and the amount you would like to raise this limit to
Subscription services (Internet, Cloud Services, Line Rental, SLA’s etc.) are billed upfront for the month. Usage based services including pay as you use ADSL, mobile data and voice usage is billed in arrears. If a service has been activated mid-month e.g. 14th June you will also get a pro-rated charge on your bill from the 14th June-30th June, your new subscription upfront for July will then activate on the 1st July making your first bill that you receive on the 1st June look higher than it would be for a normal month. There may also be once off set-up or installation fees which will make your first month’s bill higher than usual.
Most Vox adsl accounts reset on the 1st of each month. If you feel you may run out of data during the month you can always top-up your own internet by logging into your Vox Telecom account (see customer support portal). Alternatively contact your local branch and we can get you surfing in no time.
