INTERRUPTION OF BROADBAND SERVICE:
Kiwiwifi is committed to providing the Customer with the best broadband service 24 hours per day. However, Kiwiwifi does not guarantee uninterrupted service and does not guarantee error-free service.
The Customer agrees that Kiwiwifi is not responsible to the Customer for service problems that are not within its control.
The Customer understands that there may be times when the broadband may need to be adjusted and that there may be times when the service may be interrupted.

Issues that may contribute to interruption or instability of service include:

  • Trees (or other obstacles) that have grown or moved between your location and the Service access point providing your connection. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure these paths of connection are maintained and clear for optimum performance. Fees may be charged for diagnosing faults caused by obstructions to your line of sight paths. (See Extra Costs above)
  • Resetting your router. Resetting your router to factory condition will stop your connection by removing the authentication credentials. It is NOT a practice that Kiwiwifi supports – contrary to other provider practices. If you think you need to reset your router, please do call us first on 0800 999 589
  • Kiwiwifi reserves the right, at any time, or in emergencies without prior notice, to restrict or suspend the Services to perform maintenance activities.

SPEED:
Kiwiwifi plans offer download and upload speeds up to the stated Megabits per Second (Mb/s) across the Kiwiwifi Network. Advertised Plan speed refer to the maximum speed possible.

Outside of our network, many uncontrollable factors can and do influence bandwidth of the Service which will vary based on (but not limited to) Network or Internet congestion, your computer configuration, weather conditions. We may in certain circumstances implement traffic prioritization to ensure most important Internet traffic such as, but not limited to voice calls receive priority.

Speed tests operate outside our network however, outside of peak hours, we would expect a test to show speeds close to the plan offering. Speed tests should be considered a very rough guide only. Because of factors that influence speed outside of our control, Kiwiwifi cannot guarantee Broadband Service speeds based on the results of speed testing.

If the customer feels that their Internet speeds are consistently at a significantly lower than expected speed, they should contact the Kiwiwifi technical support team on 0800 999 589.

Virus protection is the responsibility of the customer. Kiwiwifi will not assume any liability for virus infection as a result of our service.
