Fair Use Policy (FUP)
Within the Fair Use Policy (FUP), the rules regarding the unlimited use of the subscription are framed. The FUP means that Message To The Moon reserves the right to monitor its customers’ traffic and filter out excesses. You can find our FUP at www.messagetothemoon.nl/fup
This Fair Use Policy was created to prevent abuses. In order to ensure that we can offer favorable rates to everyone, we must prevent and eliminate excesses by others. This regulation is designed to protect our “Fair” customers.
The Fair Use Policy comes into effect the moment you as a customer consume from 15% above your unlimited amount. Message To The Moon evaluates your calling behavior at least twice a year and may adjust your subscription based on this evaluation. If we see reason to do so, we reserve the right to do so more often.
What happens if I consume more than stated as reasonable in the Message To The Moon Fair Use Policy?
Should you exceed the limits of the Fair Use Policy, your subscription will not stop and you can continue to make calls as usual. However, we will charge you for the amount by which you exceeded the Fair Use Policy. We will also adjust your subscription type and therefore your fixed monthly amount. You will be informed about this.
In principle, the limits for the subscription and the Fair Use Policy are set in such a way that you stay within them in case of regular calling behavior. Does your situation change and do you think you will exceed the Fair Use Policy limits? Please contact us, we will adjust your subscription so you do not violate the Fair Use Policy rules.
All subscriptions that include unlimited calling have a Fair Use Policy.

A 088 number is also sometimes called a 088 business number or 088 number range. You can request a 088 number in the form of a ‘number block’: a series of 100, 1000 or 10,000 telephone numbers. You can choose which number you want to activate. A 088 number is often used for companies with, for example, several branches. Thus, each branch office can have an almost identical number where only the last digits change.

Hosted VoIP is the replacement for your telephone system. You do not need a telephone infrastructure (KPN lines or the like) at your location, everything is delivered to you via a data (IP) line. A SIP Trunk is merely the possibility to connect to the telephone network via your existing Internet connection, using the SIP-enabled telephone exchange at your location. So for a SIP Trunk, you need a quality Internet connection and a suitable PBX.
Een SIP Trunk is te vergelijken met een ‘gewone’ telefoonlijn. Het verschil is dat inkomende en uitgaande gesprekken niet via een telefoonlijn lopen, maar via het datanetwerk (internetverbinding). Spraak en data gaan dus over één netwerk, in plaats van over twee gescheiden netwerken. Een SIP Trunk is louter de mogelijkheid om via uw bestaande internetverbinding, en met behulp van de voor SIP geschikte telefooncentrale op uw locatie, verbinding te maken met het telefoonnetwerk. Voor een SIP Trunk heeft u dus een kwalitatieve internetverbinding nodig en een geschikte telefooncentrale.
