Our Terms and Conditions & Code of Practice
One2Call Code of Practice
One2Call is a business technology services and support specialist, providing a full range of services across voice, data, and mobile services, IT and cloud computing, connectivity and building security.
Our aim is to take care of your core technology services while you get on with running your business.
We are fully indpependent and tied to no service providers. Instead we select the vendors we feel offer the best service and value to our customers, and concentrate on developing close relationships with them. Our dedication to service combined with our close provider relationships allows our customers to enjoy a cost-efficient service and an unparalleled positive customer experience.
Our mission is to get technology is on your side. Working for you, not against you.
That means more than just fixing what goes wrong or ensuring it doesn’t. That’s the least you should expect.
- It means always being courteous and friendly.
- It means taking delight in helping.
- It means seeking to understand your business.
But overall it means taking the time to listen.
Only by listening, by understanding your frustrations and ambitions, can we help you find the right solutions.
Right for your business, right for your budget, and right for your bottom line.
And when we have done that, you will truly have technology on your side.
The Purpose of the Code
As members of the Federation of Communications Services we have undertaken to comply with the FCS Ethical Code of Business Practice. This includes having our own Code of Practice (as per below) and being a member of an Ofcom approved Alternative Dispute Resolution Scheme (we use Ombudsmen Services).

It is written for residential and Small Business consumers who purchase telecommunications services from us directly. A Small Business is defined as a company having 10 employees/volunteers or fewer and is not itself a telecommunications service provider.

This includes the Mailing Preference Service, the Telephone Preference Service, the Fax Preference Service and the E-Mail Preference Service.

Disconnection for non-payment
Prompt payment of bills helps us keep our costs down so that we can continue to offer a highly competitive service. Please call us as soon as possible if you think you may have difficulty in paying your bill. If there are special circumstances, we may be able to agree special arrangements with you to prevent disruption of your telephone service.
In the event that a bill is not paid we will make all reasonable attempts to resolve the matter with you. However, if we are unable to get a satisfactory explanation for the non-payment we may suspend or disconnect your service in accordance with our terms and conditions.
Our customer service agents are able to help with all your queries including products, billing and tariffs.
Where possible, we will respond to your enquiries within 2 hours. Our customer service agents can deal with your enquiries from Monday to Friday between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm. If you have any service enquiries please call us on 01142 300080.
Alternatively, you may write to our Sales Director at:
Unit 2, Longacre Close
Or email us at email@example.com
Customers are bound by the terms agreed in the Master Service Agreement signed at the commencement of the service. If no signed agreement is in place contract terms will be as agreed via email or recorded voice conversation between One2Call Limited and the Customer.
If you wish to cancel your service with One2Call Limited you can do this in writing or by email. Cancellation of services must be received within 30 days of the contract renewal date.
Any customers who have an Assured or Converged ADSL or FTTC connection will receive a Cisco demarcation device in the post prior to install.
Upon termination of the circuit this device will need to returning to One2call’s head office within the following 30 days after cancellation. Failure to return the equipment will result in a £270.00 charge being issued to the customer.
Our contact details and office hours are shown above.
If the Customer wishes to cancel the Contract or a Service before the expiry of the Committed Period or any Subsequent Contract Period, One2Call Limited may at its sole discretion apply an early termination charge comprising:
- The full cost of any rental or service contract from the Date of Notification of intent to Cancel to the end of the Committed Period or any Subsequent Contract Period, plus 20% of the average call costs from the beginning of the Committed or Contract Period until the Date of Notification of intent to Cancel.
Where Equipment has been provided to the Customer and the Contract is terminated, the Customer must return any Equipment or Bundle Equipment to us within fourteen (14) days of such notice to terminate. If you fail to do so or wish to retain it you may be charged the standard charge for that Equipment/Bundle Equipment. This does not apply if the Customer exercises its statutory right to cancel as set out in the Code of Practice.
Some services take a little time to cancel, as they require us to work with special industry processes. When you cancel your service, we aim to advise you of the time period from us receiving your cancellation request to the time at which the service is withdrawn. During this period, you remain liable for the costs of any services we provide.
Repairing faults on our network is part of the maintenance cover we provide with our service. However unless otherwise stated in your service agreement, engineers only attend to faults in normal working hours (Monday to Friday from 9.00 am to 5.00pm, excluding bank holidays).

All requests for support will either be answered within ten minutes or with an opportunity for Customer to leave a message. A request for service will be considered accepted once it has been logged on the system and an appropriate Call Number allocated and communicated to Customer “Service Call”.

|Contracted Response Time||Contracted Resolution Time|

On-Net, Off-Net, or Managed Equipment fault: Additional 50% of the service credit claim for the service failure.
Remote Hands and Chargeable Support: 50% of the fee payable for the support.
Faults can occur on the One2call Network, another operator’s network, or on the telephone used by you or the person you are trying to call. If the fault is reported during normal working hours, we will try to establish the location of the fault. We may request that you carry out some simple checks to help us establish the cause of the fault.
We reserve the right to charge for any abortive work or visit arising from faults over which we have no control. Should an engineer need to visit your premises we will agree this with you.
If you are a previous One2call customer and wish to come back to One2call please call us on the 01142 300080 number and we will aim to get you reconnected as soon as possible.
If you are not satisfied with One2Call’s Customer Experience
We are passionate and committed about providing you with the best value telecommunications service in the UK. We understand that faults can occur, and when they do, we want to correct them quickly. We provide a comprehensive complaint handling process to solve your problem as soon as possible.
When you call us, a One2Call representative will note the details of the problem and will agree a course of action with you. Due to the complex nature of some queries, these may take a little longer to resolve. If you are not happy with the response you receive you may ask for the matter to be referred to a Director for further investigation.
In the rare event we are unable to resolve your problem we will write to you informing you of the position. When you receive this letter and your annual bill is less than £5000, you have the right to refer your case to Ombudsman Services, our independent dispute resolution service. The Ombudsman will want to ensure that you have followed this process through before contacting them. If this is not evident the Ombudsman is likely to refer the matter back to One2call for resolution. One2call is happy to work with other independent bodies, such as ICSTIS, Citizens Advice Bureau, Consumer Advice Centres and Trading Standards Departments.
