911 SERVICE & LIMITATIONS (FOR FULLY HOSTED SERVICE)
The CRTC requires that Inline Communications Inc. provide e911 service to all customers using the Service within Canada. The terms in this section apply to all customers regardless of location. The e911 service provided by Inline Communications Inc. works differently than traditional wireline 911 emergency services. These characteristics may make e911 services unsuitable for some customers. Because Customer circumstances vary widely, customers should carefully evaluate their own circumstances when deciding whether to rely solely upon the e911 service. The customer acknowledges that it is the Customer’s responsibility to determine the technology or combination of technologies best suited to meet the Customer’s emergency calling needs and to make the necessary provisions for access to emergency calling services.
Customer acknowledges that the Service, including e911 service, will not function in all conditions, including but not limited to the following:
ABSENCE OF ELECTRICAL POWER
If there is a power outage, the Customer may be required to reset or reconfigure the Equipment before being able to use the Service and e911 service.
The Service and e911 service will not function if there is an interruption of the Customer’s broadband or high-speed internet access service.
CONFIGURATION AND AVAILABILITY
Customer’s e911 services will not function if Customer’s phone fails or is not configured correctly or if the Service is not functioning for any reason, including suspension or disconnection of Service because of billing or other issues.
Due to technical factors in network design, and in the event of network congestion on the Inline Communications Inc. network, there is a possibility that an e911 call will produce a busy signal or will experience unexpected answering wait times and/or take longer to answer than standard 911 calls placed via traditional, legacy, circuit-switched telephone networks.
The Service and e911 service may not function without dialing systems including home security systems, medical monitoring equipment, TTY equipment, and entertainment or satellite television systems. The customer has no claim against Inline Communications Inc. for interruption or disruption of such systems by the Service, including e911 service.
Inline Communications Inc. passes through to the Customer a mandatory e911 service subject to current regulatory terms to cover the costs associated with providing this service. This fee will be charged to the Customer for each occurrence.
Customers who subscribe to e911 service will be required to register the physical location of their Equipment with Inline Communications Inc., and agree to update the location whenever the physical location of their Equipment changes.
It is the customer’s responsibility to verify each of these emergency response addresses to ensure first responders are able to assist the Customer in case of an emergency. The customer acknowledges that the only mechanism for routing e911 calls to the correct emergency call taker is the physical location(s) currently registered for the account. There may be some delay before the automatic number and location information is passed to the local emergency service operator. In the event that the physical location has not been updated or is not complete, Inline Communications Inc. may attempt to route an e911 call based upon the bill-to or ship-to addresses associated with the customer’s account or initial Order.

Inline Communications Inc. will provide the Customer with warning labels regarding the limitations or unavailability of e911 service. The customer agrees to place a label on and/or near each telephone or other Customer premise equipment on which the services may be utilized.
The Service does not support 911 emergency dialing or other emergency functions in the same way that traditional wireline 911 services operate. The differences are detailed in this section and you agree to notify any potential user of the services, who may place calls using your telephone/communication system(s), of the e911 limitations described herein. The customer hereby acknowledges that it has been advised of the circumstances under which e911 service may not be available or may be limited in comparison to traditional 911 emergency dialing.
All Customers are required to subscribe to Inline Communications Inc.’s e911 service and will be subject to a monthly e911 service charge. The monthly e911 service fee shall be included in the applicable business plan charges for the associated line and the Customer shall reimburse Inline Communications Inc. for the direct costs it incurs in providing e911 service, including state, county, and municipal e911 surcharges, e911 automatic location information (ALI) database storage, line information database, and caller id (LIDB/CNAM) expenses, and any other taxes or surcharges directly or indirectly associated with the provision of e911 service. Inline Communications Inc. reserves the right to adjust the level of charges associated with the provision of e911 service to reflect increases or decreases in the costs Inline Communications Inc. incurs. Other fees may apply for usage of e911 service as outlined.
