2.       PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES

 

2.1.     The purpose of the SLA is to ensure that the proper elements and commitments are in place to provide consistent support and delivery to the Customer by Kiklo.

 

2.2.     The objectives of the SLA are to:

5.3.    FTTH Service Level Definitions

  

Service levels for the FTTH Network are divided into two levels based on the nature of the faults, with the understanding that the Service is intended solely for home use:

 

(i)                  Serious Faults

Faults that cause a Customer to still be completely offline after all remote, first line diagnostics have been completed. Force majeure, Customer caused damage, as well as negligent or malicious damage by third parties, may be excluded from this service level.

 

(ii)                 Minor Faults

Faults that cause service impairment in the quality of the Services. With minor faults the Services remain connected, operational and usable, but materially lower than the agreed quality parameters on the fibre, after all remote diagnostics have been completed. Wi-Fi issues are expressly excluded from the service levels for Minor Faults, due to the lack of control over Customers’ Wi-Fi use and physical environments.

This address must not be used for account queries, use lefta@kiklo.co.za.

 

5.5    The Kiklo FTTH Service is a Best Effort service which means the potential speed that can be obtained will depend on the overall load on the line and the speeds achieved via third party networks.

 

5.6    Kiklo does not give any guarantees with regards to the quality, speed and consistency of the Wi-Fi performance of the CPE.

 

6.       REPAIRS AND MAINTENANCE

 

6.1.     Scheduled maintenance of the Kiklo network, or any portion thereof, will not normally result in Service interruption or outage. Kiklo will exercise commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Customer prior notice of scheduled maintenance that requires a service interruption or outage.

 

6.2.     Kiklo will arrange for any necessary repairs arising in terms of this Agreement. Unless specifically otherwise provided in the Agreement, Kiklo will be responsible for the costs of any repairs arising from faults in Kiklo’s equipment, except where such fault was due to Customer activity or negligence, which costs shall be for the Customer’s account.

 

6.3.     Should a fault be on Customer’s own equipment, or as a result of Customer’s equipment connected to the ONT, a call-out fee may be charged.
