If requesting a Service Credit for Availability, Eligible Company must first open a Trouble Ticket.
Credits will be based on Eligible Company’s monthly CDR and/or usage charges during the month the Service Credit accrued. If Company receives aggregate billing across multiple Ports, any Availability Service Credits will be calculated using a pro-rated amount of the net monthly CDR or usage charges by applying a ratio of the bandwidth of the impacted Ports over Company’s entire Port bandwidth. Total Service Credits across all Service level metrics in a billable month shall not exceed twenty percent of Company’s CDR for such month.
