TELEGO ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
1. Unlimited Voice Services. TELEGO reserves the right to periodically review usage levels of unlimited minute service plans to ensure that you are not using such service in violation of this AUP and if such an abuse or violation is discovered to terminate or adjust the plan as appropriate. You agree to use the unlimited minute service plans for traditional voice or fax call of a duration comparable to that of the average residential or small business customer presently utilizing TELEGO’s service and will not employ methods, devices or procedures to take advantage of unlimited plans by using the voice or fax services excessively or for means not intended by TELEGO. Excessive use is defined by TELEGO as use that substantially exceeds the average call volume or duration used by all other TELEGO unlimited plan customers. The following types of services are specifically prohibited and may not be accessed through TELEGO’s unlimited voice service plan: conference calling, monitoring services, data transmissions, transmission of broadcasts or transmission of recorded material. TELEGO may terminate your service or change your service plan if, in its sole discretion, TELEGO determines that your use of the unlimited plan violates this prohibition or is otherwise “unreasonable” or results in abuse of the unlimited minute service plan.
