									                                  Sage Telecom of Texas, L.P.
               Texas Terms and Conditions of Service and Your Rights as a Customer

Use of Service
Services provided by Sage Telecom may be used only in a manner consistent with the Sage Telecom of Texas, L.P. (“Company”) Local Exchange
and Intrastate Interexchange Telecommunications Services tariff on file with the Texas Public Utilities Commission. The tariff and Terms and
Conditions of Service may be referenced on the Sage website at www.sagetelecom.net.

Services provided by Sage Telecom are provided without discrimination as to a customer’s race, color, sex, nationality, religion, marital status,
income level, source of income, or from unreasonable discrimination on the basis of geographic location.

Credit Information
Sage may require an applicant for service to satisfactorily establish credit, but such establishment of credit shall not relieve the end-user from
complying with Sage’s policy regarding the prompt payment of bills. It is our policy to apply a customer’s credit history equally for 12 months to a
spouse or former spouse who shared the service. Any applicant who previously has been an end-user of Sage and whose service has been discontinued
for nonpayment of bills shall be required, before service is rendered, to pay all amounts due Sage or execute a deferred payment agreement.

Deposits and Interest
In cases where Sage requires a deposit the total of all deposits, initial and additional, shall not exceed an amount equivalent to one-sixth of the
estimated annual billing. For residential applicants and customers the estimated annual billing shall not include long distance charges from other non-
affiliated service providers. The deposit amount related only to basic local telecommunications service may be required as a condition for providing
basic local telecommunications services.

The deposit amount related to local telecommunications service and long distance service shall be separately identified, and a present end-user may be
required to post a deposit as a condition of continued service if undisputed charges have become delinquent, with delinquent meaning a payment not
received on or before the due date as posted on the bill, in two (2) out of the last twelve (12) billing periods or if the end-user has had service
disconnected during the last twelve (12) months or has presented a check to Sage that was subsequently dishonored.

Interest on cash deposits shall be paid by Sage at no less than the rate calculated pursuant to Commission rules. Sage shall provide payment of
accrued interest for all end-users annually by negotiable instrument or by credit against current billing. The deposit shall cease to draw interest on the
date it is returned or credited to the end-user’s account. The amount of the deposit, with accrued interest, shall be applied to any unpaid charges at the
time of a discontinuance of services. The balance, if any, shall be returned to the end-user within thirty (30) days after settlement of the consumer’s
account, either in person or by mailing it to the end-user’s last known address.

The deposit made by the end-user with Sage at the time of application for telephone service shall not constitute an advance payment to cover service
bills, but for all purposes it is to be considered as security for payment of monthly bills or other proper charges.

Advance Payments
At the time an application for service is made, an applicant may be required to pay an amount equal to one month’s service charges and/or the service
connection and/or equipment charges plus applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges as well as nonrecurring charges for any required special construction.
Advance payments received by Sage in funds other than credit card, MoneyGram or Western Union Quick Collect may delay service implementation
for up to 5 business days after payment is honored. The amount of the first month’s service is credited to the Customer’s account on the first bill
rendered. An advance payment may be required in addition to a deposit.

Payment of Charges
The customer is responsible for the payment of all charges for facilities and services furnished by Sage to the customer and to all users authorized by
the customer, regardless of whether those services are used by the customer itself or are resold to or shared with other persons. For billing of monthly
charges, service is considered to be established upon the day in which Sage notifies the customer of installation and testing of the customer’s services.
Except where otherwise specified, usage charges will be billed monthly in arrears. Customer will be billed for all usage accrued beginning
immediately upon access to the service. Customers will be billed for usage occurring during their specific 30-day billing cycle, which for purposes of
computing charges shall be considered a month. The rates charged to a customer will be the rates in effect on the first day of the customer’s billing
cycle.

Monthly charges for all access service components, provided hereunder, are billed in advance of service and reflect the rates in effect as of the date of
the invoice. A customer’s first invoice may contain charges from previous periods for service provided from the date of installation through the
current invoice period. Invoices are available electronically and in paper form at the Customer’s discretion. The Paper Invoice Fee of $0.99 per month
shall be waived for any Customer who elects Sage’s Green Electronic Billing Option and forgoes receipt of paper bills.

Bills are due and payable as specified on the bill. Bills may be paid by mail to: Sage Telecom, P.O. Box 79051, Phoenix, AZ 85062-9051, on line at
www.sagetelecom.net/account.html, or by calling the Sage Interactive Voice Response Payment Number at 1-866-729-7243, or by phone at 1-888-
449-4940, or at a MoneyGram or Western Union Quick Collect agency authorized to receive such payment. All charges for service are payable only
in United States currency. Payment may be made by cash, check, money order, cashier’s check, or certain major credit cards, Discover, VISA, and
MasterCard. Customer may also establish a recurring credit card or electronic payment which will automatically apply the total monthly bill amount
to their account 3-4 days prior to the due date. Customer payments are considered prompt when received by Sage or its agent by the due date on the
bill. Amounts not paid within sixteen (16) days after the mail date of invoice will be considered past due. If Sage becomes concerned at any time
about the ability of a customer to pay its bills, Sage may require that the customer pay its bills and make such payments in cash or the equivalent of
cash.

Charges left unpaid after the bill due date will be subject to a late payment charge. A charge of $6.00 will be applicable on all residence and business
bills for charges greater than $10.00 left unpaid after the bill due date or if any portion of the payment is received by Sage in funds that are not
immediately available. The charge shall only apply on undisputed amounts or if the dispute is resolved in favor of the Company.

When circumstances prevent customers from paying their invoices in full, Sage may make special accommodations to assist customers by setting up a
payment arrangement plan. Payment arrangement plans are only set up at the request of the customer. Payment arrangement plans are intended to
function as a short-term solution and will be reviewed and approved on an individual case basis. Immediate payment of a portion of the outstanding
                                                                            1                                                                  2/15/10
balance may be required prior to approval. In addition to the deferred amount, you will be required to pay monthly charges as they accrue. All terms
of the deferred payment plan will be included in a letter to you requiring your signature. If you do not meet the terms of the agreement, your service
may be terminated.

Sage may assess up to a thirty dollar ($30) charge for each returned check or credit card chargeback. The company may refuse to honor any
customer’s personal check, draft, or other instrument if, in the preceding twelve (12) months the customer had twice submitted payments through the
use of personal checks, drafts, or other instruments that were subsequently dishonored. Exceptions shall be made when the payment(s) had been
dishonored due to bank error.

If service is suspended/disconnected by Sage in accordance with the provisions of the terms & conditions and later restored, restoration of service will
be subject to all applicable reconnection fee/installation charges. In addition to the reconnection fee/installation charges, the customer will be required
to pay all charges due, including the charges for the period of denial. For nonusage sensitive charges, customer will be liable for the entire monthly
recurring charge during the month customer’s service terminates.

If a customer chooses to place Information Services Provider (ISP) calls or receives calls via a non-Sage affiliated carrier, customer will be liable for
all charges related to such calls; including without limitation, charges billed to the Company or Customer by ISP or other carriers, plus an applicable
10% rebilling charge.

Cancellation, Suspension and Termination of Service
Where the Customer or applicant cancels an Application for Service prior to the start of installation of service, lease of network elements, or prior to
the start of special construction, no charge applies. Where installation of service has been started prior to the cancellation, a cancellation charge equal
to the costs incurred by Sage shall apply, but in no case shall such charge exceed the charge for the minimum period of the service ordered, including
applicable installation charges, if any. The costs incurred by Sage will include the direct and indirect costs of facilities specifically leased, provided or
used; the cost of installation, including design preparation, engineering, supply expense, labor and supervision, general and administrative, and any
other costs resulting from the preparation, installation and removal effort.

By giving advance written notice, customer may disconnect service at any time following its minimum service requirement(s). Sage will have up to
30 days to complete the disconnect. Customer will be responsible for all charges for 30 days or until disconnect is effected, whichever is sooner. This
30 day period will begin upon receipt of the written notification from the customer. However, in the event that customer continues to utilize Sage’s
services beyond the date upon which the services are to be disconnected, the customer will be liable for the usage charges incurred. For nonusage
sensitive charges, customer will be liable for the entire monthly recurring charge during the month customer’s service terminates. If the customer
disconnects service prior to the end of a term plan, the termination liabilities associated with the term plan will apply.

Sage, by giving prior written notice to an applicant or customer, may cancel an application or may refuse, discontinue or limit service without
incurring any liability for any of the following reasons:
• For non-residential customers, nonpayment of any tariffed charges due to Sage for service for more than 16 days beyond the mail date of the bill
for such service, but not less than 10 days after a notice of suspension of service has been issued. In the event Sage terminates service for nonpayment,
the customer may be liable for all reasonable costs of collection including reasonable court costs, expenses and fees; or
• For non-residential customers, nonpayment of any tariffed charges due to Sage for service for more than 16 days beyond the mail date of the bill,
but not less than 10 days after a notice of suspension of service has been issued, on any Sage account regardless of whether the application or service
being canceled is related or unrelated to the account or service for which the sum is past due; or
• For residential customers, nonpayment of tariffed basic local exchange telephone service as defined in Payment of Charges section due to Sage for
service more than 16 days beyond the mail date of the bill for such service, but not less than 10 days after a notice of suspension of service has been
issued. Service may be terminated for nonpayment of the basic local exchange telephone service, or any costs arising therefrom based on the listing of
services in Payment of Charges. If the customer subscribes to a package of bundled services that includes some amount of toll minutes, and the
customer does not pay the bill in full, Sage reserves the right to remove the toll services from the packaged bundle and institute toll blocking. If the
customer then does not pay for toll services incurred after toll blocking is instituted, full service may be disconnected. In addition, if a customer
incurs fees associated with operator service use or directory assistance use and does not make full payment for those services, service may be
terminated for nonpayment. In the event Sage terminates service for nonpayment, the customer may be liable for all reasonable costs of collection
including reasonable court costs, expenses and fees; or
• For residential customers, nonpayment of tariffed basic local exchange telephone service due to Sage for service for more than 16 days beyond the
mail date of the bill, but not less than 10 days after a notice of suspension of service has been issued, on any Sage account regardless of whether the
application or service being canceled is related or unrelated to the account or service for which the sum is past due; or
• A violation of or a failure to comply with, any regulation of these terms & conditions. The discontinuance of service(s) by Sage pursuant to this
section does not relieve the customer of any obligation to pay Sage for charges due and owing for service(s) furnished up to the time of
discontinuance; or
• Sage confirms that both a phone number and mailing address are no longer valid for the customer; or
• Sage is prohibited from furnishing service by order of a court or other government authority having jurisdiction; or
• Avoidance of toll blocking by incurring long distance charges after toll blocking was implemented due to non-payment of long distance charges; or
• Failure to make deferred payment arrangements by the suspend/disconnect date.
• The company may refuse to provide service at an address where service has been discontinued for non-payment of bills for any service subject to
these terms & conditions if it is determined that the nonpayment customer or users of the service still reside at the address.
• The company reserves the right to discontinue service, limit service, or to impose requirements as necessary to meet changing regulatory or
statutory rules and standards, or when such rules and standards have an adverse material affect on the business or economic feasibility of providing
service, as determined by the company in its reasonable judgment.

Sage, without giving prior written notice, may discontinue service without incurring any liability for:
• Tampering with Sage Telecom’s equipment; or
• Evidence of theft of Sage Telecom service; or
• Acts by the customer that indicates intention to defraud Sage Telecom, Inc. in any manner.
• Failure to make a security deposit.
  Violation of or noncompliance with any provision of law, or of the tariffs or terms and conditions of service of the Company filed with and
  approved by the Commission.
• Refusal to permit the Company reasonable access to its telecommunications facilities for recovery, maintenance, and inspection thereof.

                                                                             2                                                                   2/15/10
• Interconnection of a device, line, or channel to Company facilities or equipment contrary to the Company’s terms and conditions of service on file
  with and approved by the Commission.
• Use of telephone service in such manner as to interfere with reasonable service to other end-users.
• Any use of service or known plans to use the service in a manner contrary to the security of the United States of America or contrary to the safety
  or security of its citizens.

If service is terminated by Sage for any cause set forth above and the Customer has subscribed to service under a term plan, the customer will be
charged the termination liability associated with the term plan.

Service may also be discontinued if the customer fails to post the deposit required by the terms and conditions.

Service may be disconnected during normal business hours on or after the date specified in the notice of disconnection. Except for instances
involving harm to the network, safety or security of others, or matters involving National Security, or as directed by Law Enforcement, service shall
not be disconnected on a day when the offices of the Company are not available to facilitate reconnection of service or on a day immediately
preceding such a day.

Your Sage Service
Residential Services
Residential Services cannot be used to originate calls to other telephone companies’ caller-paid information services (e.g., N.A. 900, NXX 976, etc.).
Calls to those numbers and other numbers used for caller-paid information services will be blocked by Sage, unless otherwise requested by the
customer to be unblocked. Residential service offerings that include unlimited usage are limited to use for residential voice applications. This includes
service offerings providing for unlimited local usage, unlimited intraLATA usage and/or unlimited interLATA usage. No commercial use of any form
is permitted for such unlimited service offerings. Incidental calling for dial-up Internet access, for data and fax type applications, and for other
restricted uses reflected in these terms & conditions is permitted up to a maximum of 1200 minutes within any consecutive 30-day period; any such
usage beyond this threshold shall be presumed to be non-residential in nature. If, at any time, the Company determines that the customer’s usage is
non-residential or is not consistent with use for residential voice applications, the company may immediately take actions to enforce adherence to the
Company’s Statement of Terms and Conditions of Service that are applicable to interLATA and international long distance. Such actions may include
the transition to a higher tier within the customer’s existing service plan and the application of the High Usage Charge as specified below. The High
Usage Charge is applicable to all Residential service plans whenever usage thresholds established below are exceeded, including plans that offer
unlimited usage and plans that do not offer unlimited usage. The existence of the High Usage Charge shall be communicated to the customer in
advance of its initial application, and shall thereafter apply automatically whenever the threshold is exceeded.

For residential service offerings that include unlimited usage, the company will notify the customer in writing when the previous month’s usage
exceeds that normally associated with residential voice applications. Such written notice will inform the customer that a higher tier rate will apply if,
after two additional months, the usage remains above usage thresholds established in the existing service plan. Customers whose excessive usage
levels resulted in a higher rate will, upon request, qualify for the lower-tier rate(s) after three consecutive months of usage below usage thresholds
established in the existing service plan. The High Usage Charge is a separate element and applies independently of any unlimited plan rate tier. High
Usage Charge is applicable to all Residential service rate plans; per minute of use (MOU) in excess of 6,000 MOUs during any consecutive 30-day
period and charged at a rate of $0.0025 per MOU.

Business Services cannot be used to originate calls to other telephone companies’ caller-paid information services (e.g., N.A. 900, NXX 976, etc.).
Calls to those numbers and other numbers used for caller-paid information services will be blocked by Sage, unless otherwise requested by customer
to be unblocked. Service is furnished only for use by the business customer, guests, employees and business associates.

Service is available whenever the use of the service is primarily or substantially of a business, professional institution or otherwise occupation nature,
or where the listing required is such as to indicate business use. Business rates are applicable to: 1) Offices, stores, factories, boarding houses, offices
of hotels and apartment houses, colleges, public, private or parochial schools, hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, institutions, churches and all other
establishments of a strictly business nature; 2) Any location where a business designation is provided or when a title indicating a trade, occupation or
profession is listed; 3) Service terminating solely on the answering service facilities of a telephone answering firm will carry business rates; 4)
Residential locations where the Business customer has no regular business telephone service and the use of the service by the business customer,
members of the household, or guests is of a business nature as may be indicated by advertising through newspapers, handbills, billboards, circulars,
business cards, or otherwise.

Business service offerings that include unlimited usage are available to business customers with ten or fewer business lines. Unlimited long distance
offers apply only to domestic direct-dialed live voice calls. Inbound calls using Sage Toll Free Service (8xx), operator-assisted calls, calling card calls,
information service calls and other similar calls are not included and incur additional charges. Certain applications, e.g., auto-dialing, broadcast FAX,
modem to modem, long distance Internet or Intranet access, call center and certain switching applications are not permitted above incidental levels
under unlimited service plans.

You may request a complete copy of all Sage service plans or a complete list of calling features and how they operate, by writing to: Sage Telecom,

Customer Calls made with free minutes will be marked as FREE in the long distance portion of your Sage bill. Calls where free minutes are used for
some portion of the call will be marked with a symbol based on the type of free minutes used. Unused free minutes during a billing period are lost.
The free minutes do not apply to calling cards, operator assisted calls, and calls made to Directory Assistance.

Lifeline Service
Lifeline Service is a telecommunications service assistance program designed to provide eligible residential customers with a reduction in the price of
basic local exchange access service. Customers eligibility will be determined by the Texas Low-Income Discount Administrator (LIDA). Lifeline
qualified Tribal Land applicants or customers must self-certify under penalty of perjury that they reside on a reservation, as defined in Title 47 of the
Code of Federal Regulations, Section 54.400(e). Eligible customers may have multiple access lines per residential service location; however, only the
primary access line at the principal place of residence will be eligible for the Lifeline discount. Eligible customers will receive the Lifeline discount
applied automatically to their basic local exchange service. All charges, either recurring or nonrecurring, for any service or feature other than Lifeline
Service shall be billed at the tariffed rate. Lifeline Service shall not be available on a retroactive basis, and is only available to customers who
subscribe to one of Sage’s local service plans.

Customer Proprietary Network Information
Under federal law, Sage, its affiliates and authorized agents must ask your permission before disclosing or providing access to your customer
information (CPNI) to market products and services to you that you are not currently purchasing from us. Customer information includes where,
when, and to whom a customer places a call, as well as the types of telecommunications services to which the customer subscribes and the extent to
which the service is used. Your customer information also includes how you use those services and the related billing of those services. Restricting
your information will not affect the products you currently have from Sage and may not eliminate all marketing contacts. Even if you restrict the use
of your information, Sage may use your records to market to you additional services from Sage to which you already subscribe. Even if you restrict
the use of your information, it may be used to market services to you when you call us to inquire about such services. Your election is valid until you
revoke it.

Telephone Solicitation
Texas law requires that a telephone solicitor who calls your home must; identify himself or herself by name, identify the business on whose behalf he
or she is calling, identify the purpose of the call, and identify the telephone number at which the person, company, or organization making the call
may be reached. A telephone solicitor may not call a residence before 9 am of after 9 pm on a weekday or Saturday, or before noon or after 9 pm on
Sunday. These requirements do not apply to telephone solicitations made at your request, or solicitations made in connection with an existing debt or
contract, or calls from a telephone solicitor with whom you have a prior or existing business relationship.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Charges on Your Telephone Bill - Your Rights as a Customer
Placing charges on your phone bill for products or services without your consent is known as "cramming" and is prohibited by law. Your telephone
company may be providing billing services for other companies, so other companies' charges may appear on your telephone bill. If you believe you
were "crammed," you should contact the telephone company that bills you for your telephone service, Sage Telecom, at 1-888-449-4940 and request
that it take corrective action. The Public Utility Commission of Texas requires the billing telephone company to do the following within 45 calendar
days of when it learns of the unauthorized charge:
• notify the service provider to cease charging you for the unauthorized product or service;
• remove any unauthorized charge from your bill;
• refund or credit all money to you that you have paid for an unauthorized charge; and
• on your request, provide you with all billing records related to any unauthorized charge within 15 business days after the charge is removed from
your telephone bill.

If the company fails to resolve your request, or if you would like to file a complaint, please write or call the Public Utility Commission of Texas, P.O.
Box 13326, Austin, Texas 78711-3326, at 512-936-7120 or toll-free in Texas at 1-888-782-8477. Hearing and speech-impaired individuals with text
telephones (TTY) may contact the Commission at 512-936-7136.

Your phone service cannot be disconnected for disputing or refusing to pay unauthorized charges. You may have additional rights under state and
federal law. Please contact the Federal Communications, the Attorney General of Texas, or the Public Utility Commission of Texas if you would like
further information about possible additional rights.
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                                             4                                                                  2/15/10
Selecting a Telephone Company – Your Rights as a Customer
Telephone companies are prohibited by law from switching you from one telephone service provider to another without your permission, a practice
commonly known as “slamming.”
If you are slammed, Texas law requires the telephone company that slammed you to do the following:
1. Pay, within five (5) business days of your request, all charges associated with returning you to your original telephone company.
2. Provide all billing records to your original telephone company within ten (10) business days of your request.
3. Pay, within 30 days, your original telephone company the amount you would have paid if you had not been slammed.
4. Refund to you within 30 business days any amount you paid for charges during the first 30 days following the slam.

Your original telephone company is required to provide you with all the benefits, such as frequent flyer miles, you would have normally received for
your telephone use during the period in which you were slammed. If you have been slammed, you can change your service immediately back to your
original provider by calling the alleged unauthorized telecommunications provider. You should also report the slam by writing or calling the Public
Utility Commission of Texas, P.O. Box 13326, Austin, Texas 78711-3326, at 512-936-7120 or Texas (toll-free) 1-888-782-8477, fax: 512-936-7003,
e-mail address: customer@puc.state.tx.us. Hearing and speech impaired individuals with text telephones (TTY) may contact the Commission at 512-
936-7136. You can prevent slamming by requesting a preferred telephone company freeze from your current service provider. With a freeze in place,
you must give formal consent to “lift” the freeze before your phone service can be changed. A freeze may apply to local toll service, long distance
service, or both. The Pubic Utility Commission of Texas can give you more information about freezes and your rights as a customer.

Texas No-Call List
Residential customers may add their name, address and non-business telephone number or wireless number to a state sponsored no-call list that is
intended to limit telemarketing calls including those that use text or a graphic message or image to y our residential or wireless telephone. The list will
be updated for telemarketers on a quarterly basis. Within 60 days of the date your number appears on a published list, you should stop receiving
telemarketing calls. Registration of a non-business telephone number or wireless number on the no-call
list expires on the third anniversary of the date the number is first published on the list. Registration of a telephone number on the no-call list can be
accomplished through one of the following methods:
• Via the United States Postal Service; TEXAS NO CALL, P.O. Box 313, E. Walpole, MA 02032. Request a registration form first by calling 1-866-
896-6225 or by printing it from www.TexasNoCall.com .
• Via Internet at www.TexasNoCall.com
• Via telephone at Automated Registration 1-866-896-6225.

A customer must pay a fee of $2.25 per term to register for the no-call list unless the customer registers via the Commission’s internet website
address, in which case there is no charge. The customer registration fee, of $2.25 per term, must be paid by credit card when registering by telephone.
When registering by mail, the fee must be paid by credit card, check or money order.

A customer that registers for inclusion on the no-call list may continue to receive calls from groups, organizations, and persons who are exempt from
compliance with this section, including:
