42. The responsibility of all passwords and other related sensitive information is assumed by you, should any additional fees arise from resource consumption due to poor credentials (such as, but not limited to blank passwords or “test” accounts) no fault shall be levied on LunaFibre.


Assignment of IP addresses

43. If LunaFibre assigns you an Internet Protocol address in connection with your use of the LunaFibre services, the right to use that Internet Protocol address will remain with and belong only to LunaFibre, and you will have no right to use that Internet Protocol address except as allowed by LunaFibre in its sole and absolute discretion.

43.1. In order to preserve Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addressing resources due to the global shortage thereof, LunaFibre’s consumer-based internet services may make use of Carrier-Grade Network Address Translation (CGNAT), where a Customer’s router is assigned a non-globally routable private IPv4 address and outbound internet traffic is translated to a shared pool of public IPv4 addresses. Whilst LunaFibre does make use of the latest network infrastructure in an effort to mitigate limitations experienced while using CGNAT, due to the inherent nature of the technology itself we are unable to guarantee that all locally hosted services within a Customer’s network will function as intended. Some such affected services may include but are not limited to, locally hosted web and mail servers, CCTV camera streaming services and other services reliant on globally accessible static ports.

43.2. Should you want a static IP option, we can provide you with one at an additional cost on all Fibre services. Customers are only permitted one connected session per given username.

47.1. fail to pay any amount payable under this Agreement within ten days after receipt of written demand requiring such payment; or

Billing Dispute resolution

Purpose of this Procedure

82. This Procedure sets out the obligations of LunaFibre and the Customer in resolving a Billing Dispute, including the manner in which Billing Disputes should be lodged and how they will be handled thereafter.

83. LunaFibre’s Billing Dispute Handling Procedure is intended to service both the Customer and LunaFibre’s interests by setting out clear rules and procedures to be used where Billing Disputes Occur.

“Billing Dispute” means an instance where a Customer states in good faith that their bill contains incorrect charges, payments or adjustments. “Billing Dispute Notice” means a notice submitted by the Customer in terms of this Procedure. “Billing Disputes Procedure” and “this Procedure” mean this Billing Dispute Procedure for the initiation and resolution of Billing Disputes. “Billing Enquiry” means the situation where the Customer seeks information or clarification relating to an Invoice including without limitation seeking clarification of charges or sources of usage. For the avoidance of doubt, this is not a Billing Dispute. “Business Day” means any day other than a Saturday or Sunday or a public holiday observed as such in the Republic of South Africa; “Complaint” means an expression of dissatisfaction or grievance made by a Customer, but does not include a request for information. A Complaint is not a Billing Dispute.



85. Any charge recorded on an Invoice (the subject of a Billing Dispute) which is not submitted in accordance with this Procedure is payable in full to LunaFibre by the Due Date of the Invoice.

86. For the avoidance of doubt the parties acknowledge and agree that:

89. Not all Billing Disputes may be settled to a customer’s satisfaction. Once this Procedure has been exhausted, a Customer may use any third party, Credit Card Company or bank in an attempt to settle the dispute. However, LunaFibre still retains the right to collect on any rendered services or fees that are due. Should LunaFibre be unable to reverse any disputed amounts with a third party, Credit Card Company or bank, LunaFibre will submit the full delinquent amount for Collections.

98.1. Credit any Disputed Amount already paid by you.

99. Where a resolution or determination is made in accordance with clauses 97 or 98 then, subject to either party meeting the payment obligations specified in such resolution or determination, the Billing Dispute will be deemed to be resolved and LunaFibre will have no further obligations in relation to the Billing Dispute.


Effect of this Procedure on continued service provision

100. LunaFibre will not disconnect a service provided to you which is the subject of a Billing Dispute or take adverse collection procedures or impose late payment penalties or charges while attempting to resolve a Billing Dispute lodged in terms of this Procedure and until such time as LunaFibre has reached a determination and communicated this to you.

101. We reserve the right, however, to take such measures immediately:

101.1. Where a determination of the Billing Dispute has been made and communicated to you; or

101.2. Where you have indicated that you are unable to pay your invoice or bill or have filed or are the subject of any application to court for sequestration or liquidation or otherwise seek to reach a formal arrangement with your creditors.

102. Subject only to the above, the rights and obligations of each party under the Billing Dispute Procedure continue pending resolution of a Billing Dispute invoked under this Billing Dispute Procedure. For the avoidance of doubt this includes that LunaFibre shall continue to have the right to terminate or suspend the service in accordance with LunaFibre’s rights under the agreement that you have with LunaFibre.



103. Neither party shall use any information obtained from the other party during the course of any process invoked under this Procedure for any purpose other than the resolution of the particular Billing Dispute.


Request for Reconciliation or Historical Information/Reporting

Should you request historical information that is made available to you on a monthly basis via email, a once off administration charge of R150.00 per request will be applied to your account.

Use of Account Holder information for promotional purposes

LunaFibre may include your name and contact information in directories of LunaFibre’s service subscribers for the purpose of promoting the use of the services by additional potential customers. However, LunaFibre is not authorized to print your name, trademarks or other identifying information in any other advertising or promotional materials without your prior written consent.




Our premium Fibre routers are exactly that - free to use for as long as you are with LunaFibre and using the relevant service. If you cancel your service within the first 12 consecutive months, ownership of the router will automatically be transferred to you and you will be billed the original retail value of the premium router supplied.


LunaFibre reserves the right to charge you the full installation and connection fees should you cancel within 12 consecutive months from the date of activation. The penalty fees may be disregarded if the service is active with LunaFibre for longer than 12 consecutive months. Installation and connection fees may differ based on Fibre provider, purchased date and line speed.

Please note that even if you already had an ONT installed before ordering with LunaFibre, the Fibre Network Operator (FNO) might still charge us an installation and connection fee, and as result we will need to include this in the claw back fee if you cancel in your first 12 months of service.


Please note, in the event that an invoice is not paid by the due date, your service will be suspended and we reserve the right to cancel your fibre line with the underlying fibre infrastructure provider.

In the event that you reconnect / re-activate your account after it has been cancelled, you will be charged any reconnection fees which the underlying service provider may charge us to reconnect your account.

Payment of outstanding fees by EFT/Bank deposit is not recommended for outstanding fees as this can take several days to reflect in our account and you may still be suspended. We recommend using the Netcash payment link, giving you the option to authorise payments via email, sms or qr-code to make immediate payment.

If you are moving to a new service with LunaFibre, and you cancel your current service, there may be connection fees applicable for your new service. These will be clearly communicated to you in the selection pane when you place your order.
