Monthly Connectivity Uptime Service Levels
|Monthly Connectivity Uptime Percentage||Service Credit*|
*Service credit applies only to monthly usage charges for UCare (i.e., does not apply to charges for other features such as SMS).
- “Maximum Connectivity Minutes” is the total accumulated minutes during a billing month for the UCare app.
- “Connectivity Downtime” is the total accumulated minutes that are part of the Maximum Connectivity Minutes that have no External Connectivity.
- “Monthly Connectivity Uptime Percentage” for a specific Customer is the total number of Maximum Connectivity Minutes less Connectivity Downtime divided by Maximum Connectivity Minutes for a billing month for a given subscription of UCare. Monthly Connectivity Uptime Percentage is reflected by the following formula:
“Monthly Connectivity Uptime Percentage” = (“Maximum Connectivity Minutes” - “Connectivity Downtime”) / “Maximum Connectivity Minutes”
