The Acceptable Use Policy for all Uncapped services (including discontinued services) can be found here. By accepting the Terms and Conditions, you also agree to the afore-mentioned AUP. All uncapped services are billed within a calendar month (1st to last day of every month). Your proof of payment is to reach us before 5pm on the last day of the month to prevent service interruption on the 1st of each month.

Prepaid services are a once off purchase and are valid for a period of 12 months (1 year), you are able to top up the prepaid service with additional bandwidth of the same service type at any time, with each top up the validity of the prepaid service will be extended with an additional 12 months (1 year).

The capacity of the Network and available bandwidth is in no way guaranteed on any of the bandwidth based services offered by Coolhost  and as such we reserve the right to manage (shape, throttle, limit protocol through-put) all services in accordance with the available network capacity at all times. Our first priority will always be to provide the best possible experience to all of our users when/if it becomes necessary to manage services.

Capped Services

Rollover of Data Should you not use all of your purchased data within a month (1st to last day of each month); the unused data will carry over to the following month for a period of 3 months. As your data is exhausted the unused data from the oldest months accumulated data will be added to your service. In order to use your rollover you must first deplete your monthly allocation of data, once the monthly allocation is depleted your rollover data will automatically become available.

EXAMPLE You have not used up all your data for June, July and August. In September you run out of data, we will automatically allocate the unused data from June to your data service first. If you deplete this data too, we will automatically allocate the unused data from July and if you deplete this, we will automatically allocate the data from August. If you reach the end of September and you only needed to use your rollover data from June and July, the unused data from August will be available to use in October.

Rollover of Data is only applicable to services which are paid up to date and are renewed monthly. If your debit order or credit card payment fails for any reason all data that has accumulated will fall away and will not be re-allocated on payment for the service. Should you cancel your service any accumulated data will fall away.

The Uncapped Services may not be repackaged/broken down and sold to 3rd parties, may not be used to provide network services like hosting/mail/ftp/backhaul for Wifi/internet cafes and other networks.

Telkom ADSL Lines

By purchasing/applying for an ADSL Line service it is agreed that you accept and agree to the Terms & Conditions as stated below:

I/We hereby authorise Coolhost (Pty) Ltd to apply for a new convert, migrate, migrate back, convert back of my/our ADSL Line from Telkom SA Ltd or my current ADSL Line Supplier on behalf of Telkom:

In order to apply for an ADSL Line, you are required to have an active monthly billed telephone line with Telkom SA Ltd. ADSL Lines remain the property of Telkom SA Limited, installations and repairs remain their responsibility. ADSL Line sizes are supplied at the maximum stable speed available that is requested by the client, the Telkom SA Ltd network is supplied as a best effort network and therefore service cannot be guaranteed. Telkom SA Ltd. runs automated health checks on all ADSL Lines and might adjust the speed of your line in order to supply the best service possible. Should you experience complete downtime on your ADSL Line for a period exceeding 24 hours, a dispute will be logged with Telkom SA Ltd once the fault has been cleared requesting a credit for the period the line was down. Once this credit has been issued, the client's account will be credited accordingly. Coolhost (Pty) Ltd will on behalf of our client as far as possible deal with Telkom SA Limited on the client's behalf. Should a fault be logged with Telkom SA Ltd. on the client's ADSL Line which results in a Technician being dispatched and it is found that the fault is due to faulty equipment or incorrect setup of equipment by the client an Unnecessary Call-Out charge may be charged to the client's Coolhost  account. Any credit due to the client by Telkom SA Limited after the transfer of their ADSL Line to Coolhost (Pty) Ltd remains the responsibility of Telkom SA Limited and the client will need to converse with Telkom SA Limited directly to arrange this if not done automatically. The activation of a new line is dependent on the exchange being ADSL ready as well as ports being available, the activation of a new line, cancellation, upgrade/downgrade or transfer is dependent on Telkom SA Limited as such cannot be guaranteed by Coolhost (Pty) Ltd. Telkom SA Limited do not allow two actions to be performed at the same time, we are therefore not able to perform a transfer and an upgrade/downgrade at the same time, we need to process each action separately.

In order to transfer an existing ADSL Line from Telkom/another ISP to Coolhost  (PTY) Ltd it is necessary for the client to request their current ISP/Telkom to perform a migrate back application. Only once the migrate back application has been completed will Coolhost (Pty) Ltd be able to apply for the transfer. During this process of transfer between ISP's/Telkom the ADSL line will be in a suspension state with no ADSL access. The client has 30 days from the date of the migrate back application to request re-activation of the ADSL Line, if the re-activation is not done within 30 days, the ADSL Line will be completely cancelled. Applications received where the incorrect number has been supplied by the client will be charged for until the application has been cancelled by Telkom. No refund requests will be considered where the incorrect number was supplied on application.

The client will continue to be billed by Telkom SA Limited for the telephone/fax line rental and telephone/fax calls as well as any other services provided to them directly by Telkom. Should your line be suspended by Telkom SA Ltd, the ADSL service on your line will not be usable until Telkom SA Ltd have lifted the suspension on the line.

The ADSL line rental will be billed to the client by Coolhost (Pty) Ltd together with any other services provided to them. On completion of a new, transfer or upgrade/downgrade of an ADSL Line an invoice will be generated and debited via the clients nominated payment method.

Should your debit order payment against your bank account or credit card be returned (initial and monthly) unpaid the ADSL Line will be migrated back if the outstanding amount is not settled within 7 days. A migrate back will result in the ADSL Line being suspended and completely cancelled 30 days thereafter if the outstanding amount is not settled.

Payment for the rental of the ADSL Line is due before the 1st of every month, failure to pay will result in the ADSL line being migrated back. Should you approach Telkom directly to have your telephone number ported, the ADSL service on your line will automatically be cancelled. Please advise us of your intent to port (move) your telephone line to a new address so that we may arrange for the ADSL line to be moved together with your telephone line. Should an incorrect telephone number be provided for the ADSL line and the service is successfully activated, the client will be liable for any costs arising from the activation of the ADSL Line service.

Please also note that ADSL lines are not cancelled during the month but only at the end of the month, if you wish to have your line cancelled during the course of a month you will not be refunded any monies already paid for that month.

Please be aware that Telkom do not allow us to submit cancellations for a specific date. In an effort to avoid the cancellation or migrate back of the line taking place before the last day of the month we submit these applications on the last 2 working days of every month. It is possible that the cancellation/migrate back will be actioned before the last day of the month or only take place the following month.

Please note that as standard practice the up to 20Mbps VDSL service is activated by Telkom as an ADSL2+ service which has a lower upload speed than the VDSL service. Please contact us on 087 001 0306 or lines@coolhost.co.za should you wish to change to VDSL. We will then submit a request to Telkom to have the line changed to VDSL if possible. The upload speeds for up to 20mbps ADSL2+ are 1Mbps and the upload speed for up to 20Mbps VDSL is 2Mbps.

Queries pertaining to your ADSL line can be directed to lines@coolhost.co.za during office hours, if you are experiencing technical difficulties you can contact our 24 hour Support Line on 087 001 0306.
