Additional Notes

Complaint: Integra charged us early termination fees of $4979.50 because we ported 2 telephone numbers off a PRI as we needed these numbers to ring at our newly remodeled restaurant. Rather than working to resolve the issue, Integra terminated our services here at our Corporate Office and our phones did not work for several hours until we paid the erroneous termination fees. This is no way to do business. I request and expect a full refund of the $4979.50 . Customer: ***** ********* Master Account#****** Invoice#********

Desired Settlement: I request and expect a full refund of 4979.50 for "early termination fees" that were charged for simply moving two telephone numbers off a PRI so that we can run our newly remodeled restaurant.

Business Response:

Integra has researched the complaint filed by ***** ******* on behalf of his company. Mr. ******* is disputing Early Termination Fees (ETFs), and stating that Integra did not work to resolve the issue. He is requesting a full refund of the ETFs that were paid.

Integra received a request on 6/18/2015 to port four of the customer’s numbers, in advance of the contract term. On 6/19/2015 a letter was sent to the customer advising that ETFs would be assessed if the numbers were ported before the contract was satisfied. The Master service Agreement (MSA) states, “…Integra may charge the customer an Early Termination Charge fee equal to and including any or all of the following: 100% of the total MRC, surcharges and taxes for the Service Term or the Renewal Services Term…”

Integra then sent multiple reminders to the customer in regards to a past due amount on the account (from 8/19/2015 to 9/14/2015). There was no contact from the customer, and therefore, on 9/14/2015 the customer’s services were suspended for non-pay. A payment was made by Mr. ******* the same day, and services were restored that day.
The ETF charges have been paid, but will not be refunded to the customer because the customer ported numbers to another carrier before the contract had completed. Therefore, Integra has billed the customer correctly.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Consumer Response:

Complaint: Integra charged us with an early termination fee of $4469.00 for a PRI circuit that we use and are still paying for on a monthly basis.

Desired Resolution: Full refund. We did not terminate our PRI circuity and continue to pay monthly for our PRI circuit. We request a full refund of early termination fees.

Business Response: According to the complaint the customer appears to be associating the Early Termination Fees (ETFs) with a PRI circuit that the customer is still using and paying for monthly. Rather, the ETFs resulted when the customer ported out four of its basic voice lines.  The end-date of the service agreement for the lines that were ported is in 2017, which is why ETFs were assessed when the lines were ported.  Integra notified the customer about the ETFs when we received the port request from the new carrier, but did not hear back from the customer and the account was ultimately suspended for non-pay. Integra performed in accordance with the terms of the agreement, and has billed the customer correctly. If the customer would like additional information or explanation, they may contact an Integra Customer Care representative at 1-866-INTEGRA (468-3472) or 

Consumer Response:

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:

We were not given notice of early termination fees.  As you can see on page 4 of the attached Early Term Invoice PDF, there is simply a line for early term and a cost of $4465.  Not details were provided. 

As a fair business practice and to maintain our business relationship, please refund the $4465
