We will provide you with notice of applicable pricing contemporaneous with your order and/or activation, including information regarding standard pricing applicable at the end of a promotion via our rate card or other notice. We will provide you with notice of any change in our standard prices or fees or new prices or fees, unless the change in price or new fee is related to a change in governmental or quasi-governmental taxes, fees, or assessments, in which case we may elect not to provide notice except where required by applicable law.

	FOR VOICE. Voice price information and additional terms are available at http://www.xfinity.com/policies and http://www.xfinity.com/corporate/about/phonetermsofservice/phonetermsofservice (or an alternative site if we notify you).  

	FOR MINIMUM TERM AGREEMENTS. If you have agreed to a minimum term agreement, your price for Service(s) will be as specified for the duration of the minimum term agreement.  

	B. HOW WE WILL BILL YOU. Unless you are subject to a minimum term, Service(s) are provided to you on a month-to-month basis. You will be billed monthly, in advance, for recurring Service charges, equipment charges, and fees. YOU MUST PAY THE FIRST MONTH'S SERVICE CHARGES, XFINITY EQUIPMENT CHARGES, DEPOSITS, ACTIVATION FEES AND INSTALLATION CHARGES ON OR BEFORE THE DAY WE INSTALL ANY OR ALL OF THE SERVICE(S). You may be billed for some Service(s) individually after they have been provided to you; these may include, but are not limited to, measured and per-call charges (as explained below) and charges for pay-per-view movies or events, interactive television, and e-commerce. If you receive Service(s) under a promotion, after the promotional period ends, regular charges for the Service(s) will apply. You should consult our rate card for standard/regular charges. We do not waive our rights to collect the full balance owed to us by accepting partial payment. We will apply the partial payment to outstanding charges in amounts and in the order we determine in our sole discretion. 

	FOR VOICE. If you pay a flat monthly fee for your calling plan, that fee may not cover certain types of calls. You will be billed for these excluded call types on a per-call basis (e.g., operator services) or a measured basis (e.g., international calls). See http://www.xfinity.com/corporate/about/phonetermsofservice/phonetermsofservice for information on per-call charges and the timing of measured-call charges.

If you exceed your credit limit, we reserve the right to suspend Voice and require payment for usage charges assessed to your account. Our paper bills for Voice contain only a summary of charges. Detailed information is available for a limited period at a password-protected portion of our website.

You are solely responsible for all such charges payable to third parties, including all applicable taxes.  

	D. ALTERNATIVE BILLING ARRANGEMENTS. We may agree to provide billing services on behalf of third parties.
