Master Services Agreement (MSA)
THIS AGREEMENT (the “Agreement”) is made and entered into by and between Voyant Communications, LLC on behalf of itself and its affiliate, ANPI Business, LLC d/b/a Voyant Communications (Voyant”), and the party receiving services (“Services”) from Voyant (hereinafter referred to as “Customer”). Customer and Voyant are individually referred to as “Party” and collectively referred to herein as “Parties.” Any Service Addendum (“Addendum”) and/or other Exhibits attached hereto are incorporated by reference and detail the price, location, and other information about the service(s) to be provided by Voyant.
This Voyant Master Services Agreement replaces and supersedes any previous Master Services Agreement between Customer and Voyant.
The Term of this Agreement shall commence on the date (1) that Customer executes a Service Addendum, Order or other Exhibit or (2) the date that Voyant begins the Service delivery process, whichever occurs first (“Effective Date”) and continue for as long as any applicable Service Addendum, Order or other Exhibit associated herewith remains in effect or as long as Voyant continues to provide the Customer with any Service hereunder, whichever is longest. With regard to any Addendum executed under this Agreement, the term reflected on the Addendum shall constitute the Minimum Service Term of those services. Upon the expiration of the Minimum Service Term for each Service, each Service’s Term shall automatically renew for successive one-year terms unless and until either party provides written notice to the other party at least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the then current term of their intent not to renew services. This Agreement and/or any Addendum(s) may be terminated pursuant to the provisions of Paragraph 11 “Default” below or as may be additionally defined in any individual Addendum(s).

3. Service Availability
Voyant’s ability to provide Customer with services depends upon several unknown factors, including, but not limited to, the quality of the existing wiring at and to the Customer’s site and any and all Customer premise equipment. In an effort to evaluate service availability, Voyant may conduct a customer site survey. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, Voyant shall be allowed to cancel this Agreement without liability to Customer if Voyant determines, in Voyant’s sole discretion, that the service cannot be provided to Customer in an economically viable and commercially reasonable manner, with sufficient quality or speed, or as a result of any other factors discovered, including those factors learned through the customer site survey.
Following a site survey, Voyant may determine that construction of additional network infrastructure would be required to provide the Service(s) to the Service Location(s). If applicable, an estimate of the non-recurring charge associated with such construction is detailed on the associated Service Addendum. In the event Customer terminates this agreement for convenience at any time after commencement of such construction, but prior to the Start of Service Date, Customer shall indemnify Voyant for any and all actual costs incurred by Voyant associated with such construction at the time of termination.
5. Customer’s Obligations
a. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer may be required to provide certain equipment at Customer’s premises (the “CPE”) for services depending on Customer’s selected configuration(s). The CPE must comply with Voyant’s interface requirements. In the event that the CPE or any equipment or software not provided by Voyant impairs Customer’s use of any Services, Customer shall nonetheless be liable for payment for all Services provided by Voyant. Voyant shall not be responsible for the operation or maintenance of Customer owned and operated CPE
b. Customer shall be required to provide any and all electrical power and any necessary secondary/back-up power, a suitable cable access route, environment, and space for equipment.
6. Equipment and Installation
a. Voyant, or its agent, shall provide, install, maintain, repair, operate and control Voyant’s equipment. Unless specifically provided for herein, or in any service request, Voyant shall pay the cost of purchase and installing any Voyant equipment.
b. Voyant’s equipment shall be used exclusively for providing the Services pursuant to the Agreement, unless otherwise expressly provided.
c. Voyant’s equipment shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Voyant and nothing contained herein shall give or convey to Customer, or any third party, any right, title, or interest whatsoever in Voyant’s equipment.

Customer shall not tamper with, nor remove, any identification markings or labels attached to Voyant equipment identifying Voyant’s ownership interest in the equipment.
d. Equipment and service beyond the point of demarcation (“demarc”) and/or interconnection between Voyant’s facilities and terminal equipment and the wiring at the demarc shall be the sole responsibility of Customer unless otherwise expressly provided herein.
e. If Customer provides its own equipment, Voyant shall have no obligation to install, maintain, or repair the equipment. If, on responding to a Customer-initiated service call, Voyant and Customer jointly determine that the cause of the service deficiency was in any way caused by equipment other than Voyant’s equipment, Customer shall compensate Voyant for actual time and materials expended during the service call.
f. Neither party shall adjust, align, attempt to repair, relocate, or remove the other party’s equipment, except as expressly authorized in writing by the other party.
g. Customer shall be liable for any loss of or damage to Voyant’s equipment caused by Customer’s acts.

Upon termination/expiration of any Service including Voyant owned equipment, or when Customer replaces/upgrades Service including Voyant owned equipment, Customer must return terminated or replaced/upgraded CPE to Voyant at Customer’s own expense within 15 business days of termination or replacement/upgrade. Voyant will provide Customer with return instructions. Customer must deliver CPE to Voyant in the same condition as it was when first delivered to Customer, normal wear and tear excepted. If CPE is not returned as such, or not returned, Customer will be responsible for Voyant’s out of pocket costs for replacing the unreturned CPE.

Voyant shall reimburse Customer for the reasonable cost of repair of the equipment, or the replacement thereof, within thirty (30) days after receipt by Voyant of a written request for reimbursement.
7. IP Address Allocation Policy
Voyant assigns IP addresses to its customers for use with certain IP/data based Services. Voyant shall retain any assigned public IP address when a customer’s service is terminated. Voyant and Customer agree that assigned addresses are “non-portable” and other providers are not allowed to route these addresses unless the Customer is peering with other Internet Service Provider(s) in addition to Voyant. Any Customer IP addresses which are allocated directly from American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) will be ported/routed by Voyant where reasonably possible. However, Voyant cannot guarantee the portability/routability of these addresses beyond its own backbone and to the Internet in general. Voyant reserves the right to modify its IP Address Allocation Policy without notice.
a. Customer shall pay all invoices within thirty (30) days of the invoice date. Any invoice not timely paid in full shall be assessed a late fee in the amount 1.5% of the unpaid balance per month or the maximum lawful rate.

c. All Service Fees and other charges are exclusive of any taxes, surcharges, public utility fees and regulatory fees (including, without limitation, Universal Service Fees and E911 taxes). Customer is responsible for taxes and fees billed by Voyant. Taxes and regulatory fees may increase during the Term, and Customer will pay such increased fees commencing with the next monthly bill. Should Customer claim an exemption of any taxes or regulatory fees, any relief from taxes or regulatory fees will begin upon receipt of proof of exemption.
d. In order to provide Services to Customer, Voyant may, at its sole discretion, require a security deposit prior to the Start of Service Date. Any amount(s) shall be later applied to the account balance upon disconnect of Services.
e. Voyant charges a Cost Recovery Fee as a percentage of monthly billed services. A Cost Recovery Fee allows Voyant to offset expenses and management costs incurred by Voyant such as state and federal regulatory fees and business licenses.
9. Governmental Authority
The obligation of Voyant to provide the Services to Customer is subject to required regulatory authorizations or other underlying rights. In the event Voyant does not have or loses any required regulatory authorizations or other underlying rights to perform hereunder, this Agreement shall automatically terminate. This Agreement may be superseded by a tariff filed with any appropriate regulatory agency, which tariff may contain such modifications of the provisions of this Agreement as Voyant deems appropriate. In the event that such a tariff materially affects Customer’s rights or obligations hereunder, Customer may terminate the specific Services so affected without penalty.
Customer may not assign this Agreement or any Addendum(s) attached hereto, in whole or in part, or assign any rights or obligations without the prior express written consent of Voyant. Any attempted transfer by Customer in violation of this Agreement shall operate as an Event of Default. Voyant may transfer, assign, or otherwise in any manner encumber this Agreement and its rights and obligations hereunder. This Agreement shall be binding upon the parties to this Agreement and shall inure to the benefit of their respective heirs, administrators, executors, lawful successors and permitted assigns.
Either Party may terminate this Agreement or any Addendum(s) in the event the other Party fails to perform any substantial obligation on its part, and does not cure such default within thirty (30) days of receipt of written notice from the non-defaulting Party. If the defaulting Party fails to cure the default within such time, then the non-defaulting Party may immediately terminate this Agreement including any and all Service Addendum(s) and/or other Exhibits attached hereto, and immediately suspend any and all performance without penalty or further obligation upon written notice to the other Party.
12. Limitation of Liability
a. The entire liability of Voyant of whatever nature arising under this Agreement shall not exceed an amount equal to the proportionate fixed monthly charges to customer for the period of service during which any mistake, omission, interruption, delay, error, or defect in the service or equipment, or any other event or action giving rise to a claim occurs.
b. In no event shall either Party be liable to the other for indirect, special, punitive, consequential, or incidental damages, including but not limited to, the loss of profits, revenues or data or inaccurate data, even if advised of the foreseeability of such damages.
c. Voyant disclaims any express or implied warranties with respect to service or equipment, including without limitation, any implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose.
Each Party shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless the other Party, its directors, officers, employees, and agents, successors, and assigns, from all damages, costs, expenses and liabilities, including reasonable attorney’s fees and disbursements, sustained in any action commenced by any third party in connection with the indemnifying party’s performance of its obligations and duties under this Agreement except for those damages, costs, expenses, and liabilities arising from the negligence or willful misconduct of the other party. The indemnified party shall promptly notify the other party in writing of any such suit or claim.
“Confidential Information” means any business or technical information disclosed by one Party to the other Party that: (1) if disclosed in writing, is marked “confidential” or “proprietary” at the time of disclosure; (2) under the circumstances, a person exercising reasonable business judgment would understand to be confidential or proprietary. “Confidential Information” does not include any information which: (1) is publicly available through no fault of receiving Party; (2) was rightfully known to receiving party prior to disclosure; (3) is independently developed by the receiving Party without use of or reference to the disclosing party’s Confidential Information. For clarity, Voyant software and access-restricted customer portal capabilities constitute Confidential Information.
During the Term, each Party agrees it will not disclose Confidential Information to third parties without written consent of the other Party, except to those employees, vendors, or affiliated entities with a bona fide need to know and are legally bound to keep such information confidential consistent with this Agreement. Either Party may disclose Confidential Information of the other Party as required by law.

Customer agrees to indemnify and hold harmless Voyant, its officers, employees and affiliates against third-party claims alleging that Customer, Customer employees, officers, affiliates users or end users use the Services in a way that violates a third party’s intellectual property rights. Customer hereby grants Voyant a limited license to use Customer’s name and logo for marketing purposes. Customer may revoke such license at any time by providing sixty (60) days’ prior written notice.

3. Customer Obligations Concerning Emergency 911 Service Limitations, Limitation of Liability and Indemnification
E911 Terms & Conditions
THIS SECTION CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT 911 SERVICES. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
- 911 = Emergency call service typically used for delivering emergency calls to a public safety access point.
- PSAP = Public Safety Answering Point
- VoIP = Voice over IP
- DID = Direct Inward Dial aka 10-digit local telephone number
- ECRC = Emergency Call Relay Center
Customer Obligations Concerning Emergency 911 Service Limitations. Due to FCC rulings and regulations, all customers who use Voyant Services as their primary residential or business telephone carrier must activate 911 Emergency Services on at least one telephone number (Enhanced DID) per location.
Customer agrees to provide Voyant with detailed address and contact information related to any location where Customer is utilizing Voyant Services and may access 911 Emergency Services. Customer agrees to continually update this information prior to implementing any moves, adds or changes to Voyant Services or Customer service location. Customer acknowledges that failure to provide such information on a timely basis will severely impair Voyant’s ability to provide emergency 911 services. Failure to update location and contact information may result in 911 calls routing to the incorrect PSAP.
To ensure any E911 call is routed properly, Customer must set their outbound caller ID value to the specific 10-digit number (Enhanced DID) which includes 911 Service. This is how the Voyant network identifies Your Emergency Response Location and determines PSAP routing.
A call routing to an ECRC due to Customer originating a call from a telephone number not supporting 911 service, or failing to set the outbound caller ID value to the correct number, will result in a $75 ECRC surcharge per E911 call.
Service Outages Due to Power Failure or Broadband/Internet Service Disruption. 911 Dialing does not function in the event of a power failure or disruption. If there is an interruption in the power supply at Customer location, the Service, including 911 Dialing, will not function until power is restored. Following a power failure or disruption, Customer may need to reset or reconfigure devices at the Customer service location prior to utilizing the Service, including 911 Dialing. Service outage, suspension, or disconnection of the Customer Broadband or Internet Service will prevent all Services, including 911 dialing, from functioning.
Service Outages Due to Suspension or Disconnection of Broadband Service or ISP Service. Service outages or suspensions or disconnections of service by Customer’s broadband service provider or ISP will prevent all Services, including 911 Dialing, from functioning.
End User Notification. Voyant will provide the Customer printed notice regarding the 911 capabilities of the Service suitable for placement near end user phones. It is the Customer’s responsibility to place the provided notice by phones utilizing the Service. If the Customer needs additional notices, the Customer will contact Voyant. The Customer acknowledges it is their responsibility to meet any applicable federal, state, or municipal requirements regarding delivering 911 capabilities to their end users.
Voyant shall have no responsibility or liability to Customer or any third party in connection with or for responding to emergency 911 or other emergency referral calls. Customer agrees to indemnify and hold Voyant harmless from and against any actions and/or liability arising out of Voyant’s provision of 911 Service2.
Alternate 911 Arrangements. If Customer is not comfortable with the limitations of the 911 Dialing service, Customer should consider having an alternate means of accessing traditional 911 or E911 services or disconnecting the Service.
4. Fraud and Network Security
Voyant shall not be liable for any damages, including, without limitation usage and toll charges which Customer may incur as a result of the unauthorized use of Customer’s telephone and/or network facilities. This unauthorized use includes, but is not limited to, the placement of calls from Customer’s premises and the placement of calls through Customer provided equipment and/or Customer’s network. In no event will Voyant be liable for security or protection of Customer’s network, transmission facilities or equipment from unauthorized access, or for any unauthorized access to or alteration, theft or destruction of Customer’s data files, programs, procedure, and information or other network elements or content through fraudulent means or devices. Customer shall remain responsible for any long distance charges or other charges irrespective of any actual or alleged unauthorized or fraudulent use. Voyant shall have the right, but not the obligation, to immediately deactivate Customer’s services in the event Voyant reasonably believes such service is the subject of theft or fraud.
5. Voice Traffic Restrictions
Voyant prohibits using the Service without prior written approval for high-volume auto-dialing, continuous or extensive call forwarding, high-volume telemarketing (including, without limitation, charitable or political solicitation or polling), fax or voicemail broadcasting or fax or voicemail blasting. We reserve the right to immediately disconnect or modify Service if we determine, in our sole and absolute discretion, that you have at any time used the Service or the Device for any of the aforementioned or similar unapproved activities.
6. Customer Obligations
