BizLine Service Description
Effective 1 April 2013
BizLine is one of Vodafone's phone line access and calling packages.
- BizLine pricing plans are only available to small and medium enterprise business customers, and customers who do not use the Services for contact centre or telesales purposes. We reserve the right to (a) refuse to sell a BizLine pricing plan to any person or business that we believe (in our discretion) is not a small or medium enterprise business or who will use these Services for a contact centre or telesales; and/or (b) terminate this Agreement immediately on written notice if you use these Services for a contact centre or telesales.
- BizLine pricing plans are only available on Phone Service lines, depending on the BizLine plan. BizLine pricing plans are not available on any other line types including ISDN PRA, Gateway or FeatureLink. To receive the BizLine pricing plans, you must keep all your Phone Service lines and direct dial calling (including local, national, international and fixed to mobile calling) with Vodafone. All of those Phone Service lines must be on the same BizLine pricing plan for that type of line. Your BizLine pricing plan cannot be used in conjunction with any other discounts, rates or calling packages.
- An additional $4 (ex GST) will be added to the monthly access price for all BizLine products.
- Please note the following:
- If you are on BizLine Complete or Get Going (PSTN only) then you will be charged an additional $3 (plus GST) per month for each of your PSTN lines that is not connected to Vodafone's own network.

ISDN BRA lines or IP Clarity may not be available for reasons beyond Vodafone's control. Notwithstanding anything else in this Agreement, Vodafone makes no commitment regarding the availability of any ISDN BRA lines or IP Clarity until those lines are connected so that you are able to receive Services over them.

- A 60-minute per call cap applies to all capped national calls and "unlimited" calls. A 30-minute per call cap applies to all capped NZ land to NZ mobile calls. The relevant per minute calling rate applicable under your BizLine pricing plan, applies thereafter.
- Call charges:

- If you have signed up to a BizLine Pricing Plan for an initial term and you give up any of the Services under that pricing plan or terminate this Agreement under our Business Terms or we terminate this Agreement under our Business Terms, prior to the expiry of that initial term, then we may require you to pay the following Early Termination Charges:
- BizLine Complete (PSTN or ISDN) - $100 (plus GST) per Phone Service line; or
- BizLine Ultimate (PSTN or ISDN) - $200 (plus GST) per Phone Service line; or
- Get Going bundle is subject to Vodafone's standard early termination charges as set out in clause 13.2 of Vodafone's standard business terms and conditions; and
- If we have agreed to waive or discount an installation charge or set-up charge, the amount of the waived charge or the amount by which the installation or set-up charge has been discounted, multiplied by the number of months remaining in the initial term at the date of termination divided by the total number of months in the initial term.
- Note: ISDN services are reliant on mains power. In the event of power outage, connection to Emergency Services (111) will NOT BE POSSIBLE. Please ensure you have an alternate means of contacting Emergency Services in case of mains failure.
