ARTICLE 2: BILLING AND PAYMENT
2.1 Commencement of Billing.

2.2 Payment of Invoices and Disputes. Invoices are delivered monthly and due in accordance with the terms set on the service order form under (“Net Terms”). Fixed charges are billed in advance and overage charges are billed in arrears. Billing for partial months is prorated.

If Customer reasonably disputes an invoice, Customer must pay the undisputed amount and submit written notice of the disputed amount (with details of the nature of the dispute and the Services and invoice(s) disputed). Disputes must be submitted in writing within 30 days from the date of the invoice. If the dispute is resolved against Customer, Customer shall pay such amounts plus interest from the date originally due. If Customer’s check is returned to Sling Broadband unpaid, Customer is subject to a returned check charge of $50.00 from Sling Broadband. Wire transfer fees are subject to a $25 incoming wire transfer processing fee. All payments must be in USD.
2.3 Taxes and Fees.

Such charges may be shown on invoices as cost recovery fees. Charges for Service are exclusive of taxes. Customer may present Sling Broadband a valid exemption certificate and Sling Broadband will give effect thereto prospectively.
2.4 Regulatory and Legal Changes. If any change in applicable law, regulation, rule or order materially affects delivery of Service, the parties will negotiate appropriate changes to this Agreement. If the parties are unable to reach agreement within 30 days after Sling Broadband’ delivery of written notice requesting renegotiation: (a) Sling Broadband may pass any increased costs relating to delivery of Service through to Customer, and (b) if Sling Broadband does so, Customer may terminate the affected Service without termination liability by delivering written notice to Sling Broadband within 30 days.
2.5 Termination before Billing Commencement and/or service delivery. If a Customer terminates a Service order form at will and not as otherwise allowed pursuant to this Agreement, Customer shall be liable for to Sling Broadband for twelve (12) months of the monthly recurring charges. In addition, Customer will be required to compensate Sling Broadband for any additional installation or construction related costs incurred by Sling Broadband which exceed the twelve (12) month’s MRC liability. Customer herby agrees that the charges in this Section are a genuine estimate of Sling Broadband’s actual damages and are not a penalty.
2.5.1 If Service is terminated after Billing Commencement and/or Service Commencement Date prior to the end of the initial service term, then, commencing on the effective date of such termination, Customer will be subject to early termination charges equal to one hundred percent (100%) of the monthly recurring charges times the number of months remaining in the initial service term, if any; plus one hundred percent (100%) of any and all waived installation fees and/or third-party provisioning and/or construction costs (“Early Termination Charges”). Customer agrees to pay all such Early Termination Charges within thirty days of Customer’s notice of termination or immediately upon receipt of Sling Broadband’s last invoice to Customer (“Final Invoice”). All requests to terminate Services must be submitted in writing to Sling Broadband 30 days prior to the termination effective date. Customer herby agrees that the charges in this Section are a genuine estimate of Sling Broadband’s actual damages and are not a penalty.
2.6 Collection Costs: If sling broadband is required to use a collection agency or attorney to collect money owed by Customer, Customer agrees to pay the reasonable costs of collection. These costs include but are not limited to any collection agency’s fees, reasonable attorneys’ fees, and arbitration or court costs.
2.7 Reconnection Fees and Related Charges. Should Customer wish to resume a Service after any suspension, sling broadband may require Customer to pay a reconnection fee. Should Customer wish to reinstate any or all Services after disconnection, sling broadband may require Customer to pay an installation fee and/or service activation fee. These fees are in addition to all past due charges and other fees. Reconnection of the Services is subject to our credit policies, this Agreement and applicable law.
2.8 Suspension/Disconnect: If Customer fail to pay the full amount due for any or all of the Services then Sling Broadband, at its sole discretion in accordance with applicable law, may suspend or disconnect any or all the Services Customer receive.
2.9 Fees Not Considered Interest or Penalties: Sling Broadband does not anticipate that Customer will fail to pay for the Services on a timely basis, and sling broadband do not extend credit to customers. Any fees, charges, and assessments due to late payment or nonpayment are not interest, credit service charges, or finance charges or penalties. Rather, they are liquidated damages intended to be a reasonable advance estimate of our costs resulting from late payments and non-payments. These costs will be difficult to calculate or to predict when sling broadband set such fees, charges, and assessments, because sling broadband cannot know in advance: (a) whether Customer will pay for the Services on a timely basis, if ever; (b) if Customer do pay late, when Customer will actually pay; and (c) what costs sling broadband will incur because of Customer late payment or non-payment.

6.4 Charges. Customer may elect to be billed based on a Committed Data Rate or at a Fixed Rate. The manner of billing selected will be set forth in each Customer Service Order.
6.4.1 Committed Data Rate charges for Sling Broadband High Speed IP Service consist of four (4) components: (a) a non-recurring installation charge per port; (b) a monthly recurring port charge (if applicable); (c) a monthly recurring charge based on the Committed Data Rate; and (d) monthly usage charges to the extent usage in a particular month exceeds the Committed Data Rate.
The Committed Data Rate shall apply to either a particular Sling Broadband High Speed IP Service port or in the aggregate to more than one Sling Broadband High Speed IP Service ports provided hereunder, as stated in the applicable Customer Order(s) for such ports. The “Aggregate CDR: billing option (as defined below) is not available for all port interface speeds. The following shall apply (as applicable):
18.104.22.168 If the Committed Data Rate applies to a particular Sling Broadband High Speed IP Service port, Customer’s per port usage of Sling Broadband High Speed IP Service (both Send Traffic and Receive Traffic) across such port will be sampled every five (5) minutes for the previous five (5) minute period. At the end of the month, the top five percent (5%) of Send Traffic and Receive Traffic samples for such port shall be discarded. The highest of the resulting ninety-fifth (95th) percentile value for Send Traffic or Receive Traffic for such port will be compared to the Committed Data Rate applicable to the port. If the ninety-fifth (95th) percentile of either Send Traffic or Receive Traffic is higher than the applicable Committed Data Rate, Customer will, in addition to being billed for the Committed Data Rate, be billed at this ninety-fifth (95th) percentile level for any usage in excess of such Committed Data Rate at the contracted-for price per Megabit.

Unless otherwise agreed in writing by the parties, Aggregate CDRs apply only to the ports listed in the Customer Order. If Customer orders additional ports in a separate subsequent Customer Order(s), the Aggregate CDR stated in the new Customer Order shall be as stated therein for the ports set forth in such Customer Order. Alternatively, if Customer seeks to have the ports previously subject to an Aggregate CDR also contribute to the Aggregate CDR set forth in the new Customer Order(s), the new Customer Order(s) may provide for an increase in the Aggregate CDR for all such ports.
6.4.2 Fixed Rate charges for Sling Broadband High Speed IP Service consist of two (2) components: (a) a non-recurring installation charge per port; and (b) a monthly recurring port charge.
