The percentages above refer to how much of that years rental is payable in the event the circuit is terminated before that years rental has been paid.

 

This policy applies to both circuit rental and mainlink rental.

 

So for example if a CP was on a seven year minimum period paying a total annual rental of £3,850, and they terminated their circuit after five years, they would pay:

  • 50% of year six’s rental (50% x £3,100 = £1,925)
  • Plus 40% of year seven’s rental (40% x £3,100 = £1,540)

Migration option for CPs already consuming OSA Filter Connect on a five year minimum period

Any CP already consuming OSA Filter Connect on a five year minimum period will be able to choose to migrate their circuits to the new five year minimum period variant, without charge and without extending their minimum period commitments. (If you are interested in doing so, please get in touch with your business development manager who’ll be happy to help)

Withdrawal of current five year OSA Filter Connect pricing

The existing OSA Filter Connect five year minimum period variant will be withdrawn for new sales after 90 days on 2 September 2019. With the new cheaper five year minimum period variant acting as a replacement.
