To put it simply, network availability means that all infrastructure - including routers, switches and cabling - is working. Network infrastructure is defined as the portion of the network extending from the outbound port on your cabinet switch to the outbound port on the border router. Services and software running on your servers are not defined as part of the network.
We guarantee that when not undergoing scheduled maintenance, the network infrastructure is available 100% of the time. In the event of an unplanned network failure, we'll refund 24 hours' service for every 60 minutes of lost connection - up to a maximum value equal to your monthly subscription charge. Any credits offered under the SLA will be allocated against your UKFast.net Ltd account.
Should there be a problem with your server, rest assured that a qualified engineer will be working on the problem within 2 hours of being notified. In the rare event that your problem cannot be solved within 2 hours, we ensure that you're kept up to date by telephone until the problem is resolved.
We also provide a detailed overview of the issue and let you know when it will be resolved. Once the issue is resolved we make sure you have a full picture of what's happened. An engineer's report with full details of the issue and resolution is sent to you within 12 hours of completion.
Our unrivalled service ensures that our specialists get to the heart of the matter to fix any errors before downtime occurs; minimising profit loss whilst maximising business efficiency.
Hardware is defined as the processor(s), RAM, hard disk(s), motherboard, NIC card and other related hardware included with the server. This guarantee excludes the time required to rebuild a RAID array and the reload of certain operating systems, processors and applications. It does not include any bespoke server hosting solutions.
