USE OF THE SERVICES – BROADBAND SPECIFIC
Your broadband speeds can and will vary depending on the type of broadband available in your area and the broadband product you have chosen. Pure Telecom rely on our wholesale network partners in providing you with information on your maximum available broadband speeds at the point of sale (i.e. over the phone or online) however, we will confirm the specific maximum achievable speed information to you as soon as possible after you have connected/installed the services.
Broadband Product Maximum Advertised Download Speed Broadband Product Category Unlimited 3MB up to 3Mbps Other Broadband Unlimited NGB 8MB up to 8Mbps Other Broadband Unlimited Fibre up to 100Mbps FTTC (Fibre to the cabinet) Instant up to 150Mbps FTTH (Fibre to the Home) Premium up to 300Mbps FTTH (Fibre to the Home) Lightning up to 1GBps FTTH (Fibre to the Home)
- We do not advertise a minimum download OR a minimum or maximum upload speed.
- The maximum available download speed provided at the point of sale and/or confirmed following your installation may not be available at all times. The reasons for this are outlined in more detail further on in this section.
- The maximum available download speed is the highest speed that we are realistically able to deliver and it will be specific to your line, i.e. your maximum available download speed will depend on the distance of your home from the cabinet or local exchange. The achievable download speed is the speed you should receive during use of the broadband service.
- 'FTTH - Fibre to the Home' Services (Instant, Premium and Lightning). If you can connect by Fibre to your Home, then the maximum achievable download speed on your line will be confirmed in advance of connection to the Services. Pure Telecom will commit to a maximum achievable and normally available download speed above 90% of the advertised speed. For example, on our Lightning Product (1Gbps) you should normally expect to achieve speeds above 900Mbps.
- 'FTTC - Fibre to the Cabinet' Service (up to a Maximum speed of 100Mbps). The normal download speed achievable for all of our FTTC customers should be above 80% of the maximum available download speed, as measured on your line after it has been connected to the Pure Telecom broadband service (i.e. for a line with 60Mbps maximum available, the normal speed achievable would be 54Mbps or more).
- 'Other Broadband' Services (up to a Maximum speed of 8Mbps). The normal download speed achievable for all of our Other Broadband services customers should be above 70% of the maximum available download speed, as measured on your line after it has been connected to the Pure Telecom broadband service (i.e. for a line with 8Mbps maximum available, the normal speed achievable would be 5.6Mbps or more).
- Please note the line speed is different to the throughput rate you experience on your device. The throughput rate i.e. the speed you experience, can depend on a number of factors such as:
- Whether you are using Wi-Fi or direct fed cabling to connect devices in your home.
- The number of devices connected to your Wi-Fi.
- Interference with Wi-Fi signal from thickness of walls, distance from router and other household electrical signals.
- The speed your devices run at.
- The quality of your internal phone line wiring.
- Potentially faulty equipment.
- The capacity of the host provider of the content you are accessing.
- High ping times and jitter in the transmission of data or packet loss can result in your broadband running slowly, not loading web pages or you may experience problems with services like VOIP and VPNs. If there is packet loss or delay in broadband data transfer, certain applications may suffer from momentary interruptions. For example, the length of time to download a movie or a box-set might increase. The more third-party services you subscribe to and actively use simultaneously will have an impact on your speeds.
- Our Instant, Premium, Lightning Fibre to the Home and Unlimited Fibre broadband services will generally have a maximum available upload speed of between 20 and 100 Mbps and can expect to achieve a normal upload speed of 5% of the maximum available upload speed or a minimum of 1Mbps (whichever is the greater). Our Other Broadband services will have a maximum available upload speed of 512kbps and can expect to achieve a normal upload speed of 25% of the maximum available upload speed or a minimum of 128Kbps (whichever is the greater).
- If you experience any continuous or re-occurring discrepancy with the actual performance of your broadband service, then please contact Pure Telecom by email at [email protected], by phone on 01-2469000 or visit our website www.puretelecom.ie/contact-us for further details. We will endeavour to resolve any issues with your broadband service within 5 working days or alternatively provide a specific timescale for resolution if outside of this timeframe in line with Pure Telecom’s Code of Practice, which you may view by clicking here. Please note we will often rely on information from our wholesale network partners to assist with troubleshooting and diagnosing broadband and line issues. If, having gone through our resolution process, it is not possible for Pure to remedy a situation where you are not achieving the speeds that we have communicated then you may select an alternative Service, we may offer a discount or you may choose to terminate your Service without penalty. You may also choose to exercise your rights under common law such as seeking rescission of the contract or under consumer law, such as the Sales of Goods and Supply of Services Act, 1980 (as amended) in accordance with your rights under Irish law.
- In supplying the broadband services, Pure Telecom will use reasonable skill and care but cannot guarantee fault-free performance. Pure Telecom does not warrant that the services will be suitable for specific customer applications, that the operation of the Services will be uninterrupted or error-free or that the Services will support or be compatible with any applications or other services which the Customer uses in conjunction with the Services.
- Due to the wide range of causes of faults, many of them outside of Pure Telecom’s control, it is not possible for Pure Telecom to fix a particular fault in a guaranteed timeframe. However, Pure Telecom will use all reasonable endeavours to repair faults in a timely fashion. There are no compensation and refund arrangements which apply if targeted service quality levels are not met, the service is provided on a best-effort basis.
- Pure Telecom reserves the right, at its discretion and without prejudice to any other provisions of this Agreement, to issue such reasonable instructions concerning the use of the Services as it considers necessary in the interests of safety, quality of the Services, other customers or telecommunications services as a whole. Pure Telecom may also issue details as to minimum system requirements.
- Pure Telecom may modify the standard settings and/or features of the broadband services to offer additional services or add value to existing customer’s services from time to time.
- Any complaints will be managed in accordance with our Code of Practice as set out at www.puretelecom.ie/code-of-practice. If, having gone through our troubleshooting process, it is not possible for Pure Telecom to remedy a situation where you are not experiencing the speeds that we have communicated your line should achieve, then you may select an alternative service, we may offer a discount or you may choose to terminate your service without penalty.
