6.   IFA Broadband Services

6.1 IFA Telecom Agents will provide an estimated timeline for supply and installation of your broadband service. We will use our best endeavours to adhere to this timeline but delays can occur. Our Customer Service Team will provide updates in the event of a delay.

6.2 IFA Telecom provides broadband subject to the limitations of the Access Provider. The published speed of our products are the maximum possible speeds attainable for those products.

6.3 IFA Telecom cannot guarantee that any or all of our broadband products will be available. Limitations to the service may apply depending on a customer’s geographical location or the presence of any physical signal barriers. A prequalification process will take place before the broadband offer can be confirmed.

6.4 IFA Telecom cannot guarantee the speed of the service. The maximum possible speed may not be available due to the distance from your home to the exchange, damage to the physical equipment carrying your signal, congestion to the Access Provider’s infrastructure, the number of devices in your home simultaneously using the service, internal wiring damage, physical barriers to wireless signals in the home, or faulty equipment.

6.5 IFA Telecom cannot guarantee the suitability of the products for the particular applications the customer intends. Some applications require high uninterrupted throughput rates for complete functionality and such rates may not always be available. IFA Telecom will not be liable for loss or damage to the customer caused by a diminished or unavailable broadband service.

6.6 The maximum broadband speeds possible are those speeds as advised to the customer and/or on the IFA Telecom Rate Sheet. The normally available speed should be generally no less than 70% of the maximum, i.e. for an 8Mb/s download speed, the normally available throughput rate should be greater than 5.6Mb/s. For a I Mb/s upload product the normally available throughput rate should be greater than 700Kb/s.

6.6.1 Normally available throughput rates for fibre products are generally better as they do not rely entirely (FTTC) or at all (FTTH) on the telephone infrastructure. Such normally available rates are generally no less than 80% of the maximum advised rate e.g. for a 300 Mb/s product the normally available throughput rate should be no less than 240 Mb/s.

6.6.2 IFA Customer Service Team will use their best endeavours to diagnose and resolve customer broadband queries or faults but are subject to the limitations of the Access Provider.

7.   Broadband Voice Service/VOIP

7.1 IFA Telecom’s VOIP service uses the broadband line to provide traditional telephony-type service. It is thus limited and potentially unavailable in the event of a diminished or unavailable broadband service. It is also dependent on the electricity service (unlike the standard fixed line telephone service). Customers should always have an alternative telephone service (such as a mobile telephone) available in the event of emergencies. The emergency services may not be able to identify the customer’s location, as is possible with the standard landline service, so the customer should always inform any emergency service of their location, if in need of assistance.

7.2 Some telephone numbers may be inaccessible over the VOIP service or the service may be subject to interruptions or delays caused by data packet loss. Some services traditionally using the standard fixed line telephone network such as alarm monitoring may not function over VOIP. The customer is advised to check in advance before employing the service. IFA Telecom will not be liable for any claim, loss or damage caused by the limitations or interruptions to the service.

7.3 All users of the VOIP service in the home should be made aware of the potential limitations of the service.

7.4 In common with standard broadband usage VOIP involves the sending of electronic data over a public infrastructure and is thus potentially susceptible to hacking or interference. IFA Telecom, through the Access Provider provides security measures but cannot guarantee the security of this or other data transmitted over the network.

8.   Customer Care

8.1 IFA Telecom Customer Care number is 0818 924 851.

8.2 IFA Telecom Customer Care Policy is set out in the IFA Telecom Code of Practice, available on ifatelecom.ie.
