Our Premium Broadband Service is designed to enhance the performance of our Voice Services. Where you use Voice Services in conjunction with Internet connectivity provided by a communications provider other than Vivid Telecom, there may be a greater likelihood of connectivity problems.
We recommend using Vivid Telecom broadband service with VoIP telephony so we can identify whether there are any faults and provide a quicker fix. We also recommend placing VoIP on a separate broadband line so it has the sole use of the broadband connection.

With VoIP you have the ability to use the service to make emergency calls by dialling 999 or 112 however because of technical issues and the fact VoIP can be used from various locations it may not always be available for the emergency operator to understand where you are.
We will have no liability whatsoever for any consequences of incomplete or inaccurate location data that you have registered with us being passed to the emergency services.
