Provider Rate Changes and Carrier Fees
Provider Rate Changes
TextOut Service Fees are for the duration of the Service Term. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, if any of the Company’s telecommunication providers supporting the service increases the rates charged to the Company during the Service Term (a “Provider Rate Change”), Company will have the right to, upon prompt written notice to Customer of such a Provider Rate Change, increase the Service Fees charged to Customer to account for the increased charges (a “Fee Increase”).
