Terms and conditions

When you subscribe to a service from MF COMMUNICATIONS LIMITED, we will send you our Standard Terms and Conditions and ask you to sign a contract, if applicable. If you have any questions, please phone our Customer Service Team on 01892 514687. We may carry out a credit check as part of our assessment procedures.

Where applicable, the minimum contract term for our services is 12 months. We aim to provide services within three working days of your original request, subject to the availability and installation of any equipment and, where appropriate, lines to your premises. If we need to carry out a survey of your premises or lay additional cabling, we will inform you of the revised timescales as soon as we can.

Cancellation

i) Line Rental

You may terminate your contract by giving written notice to MFC no less than 60 days before the end of your contract term. If no notice period is given then your contract will automatically renew for one year at the end of your original term. Should you terminate your contract early or move provider before the end of your contract term you agree to pay 25% of the remaining line rental and special services in full up to the end of the agreed term.

ii) Call Spend

You may terminate your contract by giving written notice to MF Communications Limited no less than 60 days before the end of your contract term. If no notice period is given then you will automatically agree to a one year rollover contract at the end of your original term. Should you terminate your contract early or move provider you will be charged 25% of the average monthly call spend for every additional month remaining on your term. This is calculated by taking the average call spend from all previous monthly bills with MFC.

We make every effort to ensure that our customers are happy with the level of service, and the products and service they receive from us. However, despite our best efforts, things can go wrong. We take customer complaints very seriously and aim to resolve them quickly and efficiently.

Our Code of Practice on Complaint Handling and Dispute Resolution explains how customers can complain. The code also provides information on how we deal with complaints and your right to take unresolved complaints to Alternative Dispute Resolution. You can find a copy of our Complaints Code on our website at www.mfcomm.co.uk Alternatively, copies are available free of charge and on request from our Customer Service Team on 01892 514687.

Nuisance calls

We take the problem of nuisance calls and malicious communications very seriously. We tackle it by working closely with the police and others in the communications industry. If you have been a victim of this activity, please call the Customer Service Team on 01892 514687 to report the incident and for information on how to deal with it.

We encourage parents to register the mobile phones of their children, and take responsibility for all customer care enquiries.
