Critical Information Summary
Information About the Service
Voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a telephone service that allows you to make and receive phone calls via a DCSI broadband internet connection.
Requirements and Availability
VoIP is not available as a standalone service and must be ordered for use with a DCSI Broadband service. DCSI VoIP is available on selected residential NBN, Fixed Wireless, OptiComm and ADSL services.
A compatible broadband router and analogue handset are required to use the service. If you do not already have a compatible router we can supply a supported Router or ATA (Analogue Telephone Adaptor) for an additional cost. We will only support VoIP on routers or ATA devices that we provide.
No installation is performed by DCSI for VoIP services. You may be required to connect some equipment yourself; DCSI can provide remote technical support via standard channels (such as phone or email) to assist with this.
There is no minimum term and you can cancel your service without incurring any additional fees.

Fee for Service
A Fee for Service may be charged for any works conducted by DCSI or its third party access providers to resolve a service fault where the fault is not found to be on DCSI or its third party access provider’s networks. This Fee for Service is variable and the details of the possible fee(s) will be disclosed to you prior to the works commencing or the booking of an appointment. They are subject to the customers’ approval before proceeding.
If the customer rejects the possibility of a Fee for Service, it is possible that a service fault cannot be resolved by DCSI or its third party access providers.
When you apply for a VoIP service, we will propose that you sign a form agreeing to waive your rights under the Customer Service Guarantee (CSG). You are not obligated to waive your protection and rights under the CSG; however, DCSI may choose not to supply a VoIP service to you if you do not agree to wholly waive your rights.
Residential Grade Service
The service speed of your plan is a theoretical maximum and service uptime is reliant on the third party access provider who make no guarantees for uptime or repair time frames. DCSI connections are residential grade services with no guarantee of consistent speeds or uptime. Download speed is dependent on a number of variables beyond our control, including your local network configuration and the potential for congestion on third party networks.
