2) Free standard EAD 100Mbps and 1Gbps connection charge; and

3) A £2800 reduction on EAD 10Gbps connection charges.

The exemption will be applied to Communications Providers' invoices as a bill rebate in the subsequent period for qualifying orders.

The exemption applies on all EAD product variants (EAD Local Access, EAD Extended Reach, EAD LA Resilient option one and two, EAD SyncE and Phase Synchronisation, EAD Enable, EAD five years and seven years variants) including all special offers on connection charges running at the time when the order is completed.
