Service Level Agreement

- SERVICE DESCRIPTION - The Internet Service provides an Internet connection at designated speeds into the Dryden Fiber IP Network. Dryden Fiber uses Partners (Tier 1 Providers) to terminate Internet traffic. The selected type of Service, pricing and length of Initial Term are set forth on the Service Contract for the Service.
- Network Service Availability - Dryden Fiber is committed to providing 99.99% Service Availability, defined as a network connection that is connected and exchanging IP packets with the Dryden Fiber network and the internet.
Service non-Availability must be reported by the customer by opening a trouble ticket and the start of the Service non-Availability starts when the trouble ticket is opened. Should Dryden Fiber not provide 99.99% Service Availability for a given month, the customer is entitled to a credit against monthly recurring charges (MRC) as stated in the
Service Contract based upon the following:
Length of Service non-Availability Credit
120 minutes to 240 minutes 10% of MRC
240 minutes to 480 minutes 20% of MRC
480 minutes to 960 minutes 30% of MRC
960 minutes to 1,920 minutes 40% of MRC
Over 1,920 minutes 50% of MRC
- Latency - The standard for latency on the Dryden Fiber Network is less than 60 ms within their service area. Latency is measured between access and egress ports on the Dryden Fiber IP Network and our Partner’s Network egress point. Latency is measured using only Dryden Fiber’s network management system, which is the conclusive measurement for this performance standard.
If the actual average monthly roundtrip latency of the Service exceeds the parameters above, Dryden Fiber shall credit Customer ten percent (10%) of the applicable MRC for Fixed Bandwidth or Committed Bandwidth for the applicable month for all affected Customer ports.
- Packet Delivery - Dryden Fiber guarantees average (in a calendar month) packet delivery of greater than or equal to 99.9% for Dryden Fiber’s and our Partner’s Network. “Packet Delivery” is defined as the successful delivery of packets between Dryden Fiber IP Network and Partner’s network.
If the actual monthly average packet delivery on the Dryden Fiber IP Network fails to meet the applicable parameter above, Dryden Fiber will credit Customer 10% of the applicable MRC for Fixed Bandwidth or Committed Bandwidth for the applicable month for all affected Customer ports. If, at any time, the Service experiences packet delivery below 95% in North America or 92% globally, for a sustained period of four hours or more, the period for which such reduced packet delivery is experienced shall be considered a period of Service non-Availability entitling Customer to the applicable credit provided for in the Section below titled “Network Service Availability.”
- Chronic Outages - If an individual circuit experiences either: (i) a single period of Service Non-Availability in excess of twenty-four hours in any calendar month, (ii) three or more periods of Service Non-Availability of four hours or longer over the course of a rolling six month period, or (iii) five separate periods of Service Non-Availability (of any duration) within a calendar month, Customer may terminate the services without penalty provided that written notice of termination is provided to Dryden Fiber within ninety days of the event giving rise to the termination right under this Section (that is, Internet access routers) on the Dryden Fiber IP Network.
- are calculated after deducting all discounts and special pricing arrangements
- do not apply to governmental fees, taxes, surcharges, and similar additional charges
- exclude Force Majeure events
- exclude any act or omission of Customer or Customer’s agents, contractors, or vendors. By way of example,
- failing to provide Dryden Fiber adequate access to facilities for testing,
- failing to provide access to Customer premises as reasonably required by Dryden Fiber (or its agents) to enable Dryden Fiber to comply with its obligations regarding the Service,
- failing to take any remedial action in relation to a Service as recommended by Dryden Fiber, or otherwise preventing Dryden Fiber from doing so, or
- any act or omission which causes Dryden Fiber to be unable to meet any of the SLAs.
- exclude instances where customer requests that Dryden Fiber leave a trouble ticket open.
- If an incident affects the performance of a Service resulting in multiple SLA violations, only the single highest credit applying in respect of that incident will be applied.
- SLA credits are applied only upon Customer written request, which must be submitted within thirty (30) calendar days of the end of the month in which entitlement of an SLA credit arose.
- In no event will SLA credits in any calendar month exceed 100% of the total MRC payable by Customer for the Service in that month.

Repeated redialing to 'speak to a live body' will only move you to the bottom of the queue. Please do not leave messages of a general technical support nature on an employee's private extension. That person is the only one who can access their voice mail messages and if he or she is out for the day or on vacation, you could have a long wait for a response. We realize that many people are not at their best when things are not going well. A calm explanation of the problem at hand is usually the quickest path to a solution. We are here to help you. Abusive messages left in our voice mail or abusive conduct when speaking to a Dryden Fiber help desk technician MAY result in a termination of service.
- Dryden Fiber does not warrant or promise that any of our access numbers are local to you. We urge you to note that even an access number that shares your area code or appears to be located in your general geographic region may not necessarily be a local number to you. Substantial toll telephone charges may apply to numbers that you do not verify as local to your individual area or calling plan. Your local telephone company can tell you whether any of your access numbers are in fact local to you. We urge you to check with your local telephone company before selecting an access number.
