We will remain the owner of the devices and equipment installed at your service location.

You cannot sell or transfer rights the devices and they are to remain free of any lien and/or charge. Our devices installed at your site shall remain moveable property.
The Service demarcation point is the port on the Access Point that connects to the Internet access device.
You are responsible for the security of your network, for implementing your own security policies, and for obtaining any security services to protect your network.
Our Wi-Fi service utilizes radio-waves and is subject to factors out of our control, therefore, we do not guarantee timely, secure, error free or uninterrupted WI-FI service, bandwidth per device, or that your end users will receive or be able to transmit their messages or data.
TELUS Office Wi-Fi Essentials utilizes standard IP addressing and routing standards to deliver these services. It is your responsibility to maintain your Local Area Network (LAN) in accordance with these standards to ensure service functionality.
The TELUS Office Wi-Fi Essentials service is configured and managed via a cloud management portal. The devices deployed at your premise connect to the cloud over secure sockets layer (SSL) with all configurations stored in the cloud and providing remote access to the devices for service availability monitoring by TELUS. You will notify us of any scheduled maintenance that may affect the availability of your Internet access. The cloud infrastructure uses an out of band management architecture which means that no user traffic passes through the data center – only management data. You acknowledge that your management data may be stored outside of Canada and may be subject to access under the laws of foreign jurisdictions.
The network will continue to function normally even if the cloud management portal cannot be accessed. Users can authenticate, firewall rules remain in place and traffic flows at full line rates.
