If your service repair requires a re-wire, we’ll cover it all – inside and out.
General Plan Description
The Service Protection Plan is an optional plan that covers the customer for service calls that require repair to inside wiring*. Inside wiring includes the cable, data and telephone lines used to provide the Vast services that run through the walls, conduits, crawl spaces, basement and attic of the customer’s home starting from the outside line entry point and extending to the individual phone jacks and cable outlets. For customers not subscribing to the Service Protection Plan, Vast will repair only inside wiring related to services it provides, and will charge a service fee for the Technician Visit.
Terms and Conditions
For a separate monthly charge, Vast offers a Service Protection Plan for most residential customers who subscribe to Vast services. The Plan is a maintenance program that maintains and repairs the inside cable, data and telephone wiring in a customer’s home that is used to provide the Vast services. The Plan may not be available in all Vast service areas and is not available to commercial services customers.
The Plan is optional and covers certain inside wiring* (as defined below), related service calls, pursuant to the Plan’s terms, for as long as a customer subscribes to the Plan. Please note that: 1) the Plan does not cover certain services related to inside wiring and other items not owned by you (e.g., if you rent your home or apartment); and 2) without the Plan, customers will be charged applicable service call fees for each Technician Visit.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Vast is not responsible for service under this Plan: 1) if it fails to perform due to labor difficulties, government orders, Acts of God, or other circumstances beyond Vast’s reasonable control, 2) if repairs cannot be performed safely due to environmental or other conditions, or 3) if there is deliberate or negligent damage to your inside wiring, coaxial cable or phone outlets, and/or Vast equipment.
If the repair is not covered under the Service Protection Plan, you may: 1) make the repair yourself; 2) hire an outside contractor, or 3) have Vast perform the repair at the standard billing rate.
Except as expressly set forth herein and as permitted by law, Vast shall not be liable for any injuries to persons or property arising out of installations, maintenance or repairs performed in connection with the Vast Service Protection Plan nor shall Vast be liable for any other damages including, but not limited to, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, arising from the customer’s use or inability to use such inside telephone wire, cable wire, Internet wire, telephone jacks or cable outlets. Vast EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES RELATED TO THE VAST SERVICE PROTECTION PLAN. THIS DISCLAIMER EXPRESSLY INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO, DISCLAIMER OF ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. VAST’S LIABILITY UNDER THIS AGREEMENT IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT PAID UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. If you are not the owner of the building where Vast will perform services covered by the Plan and Vast does not already have rights to access the building (for example, where Vast has its own Right of Entry agreement with the building owner), you warrant and represent that you have obtained all necessary permissions from the owner of the building and you will indemnify Vast from any liability arising from a breach of this representation and warranty.
Vast will perform all services under this Plan in accordance with industry standards. If problems arise due to defective materials used by Vast or its workmanship in providing service under this Plan, Vast will make all necessary repairs and/or replace defective materials.
The Plan is effective the day you order the Plan. Charges for the Service Plan and any other terms or conditions applicable to the Plan may change at any time with at least 30 days prior notice. The monthly charge does not include franchise fees, taxes and other applicable fees.
Other restrictions may apply. The Service Protection Plan is subject to Vast’s standard terms and conditions.
