|Priority||Definition||Resolution Time||Progress Reports|
|Critical impact||A catastrophic fault, where a minimum of 50% of users at a particular site cannot use a particular Service.||4 hours during Service Hours (or 8 hours during Service Hours where the fault is assigned to one of Vodafone's subcontractors for resolution).||At 1 hour intervals during Service Hours.|

- We will use all reasonable endeavours to resolve any faults for which we are responsible in accordance with the resolution times specified below. However, we do not guarantee that these resolution times will always be met.
- Faults will be assigned a priority rating depending on the impact that the fault is having on the Services. We will determine that priority rating in consultation with you.
- “Resolution Time” means the period elapsed (during Service Hours) from the time you log the fault to the time that the affected Service is restored to normal operation.
- “Service Hours” means 7.00am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday (inclusive), but excluding national public holidays.
