The total balance due on the Invoice may vary from month to month depending on the Services provided by N2Net.  The monthly Invoice will constitute notice of any variance in the amount that will be automatically charged to the credit card or debited to the debit card from month to month. Client may cancel the automatic recurring charge payment authorization by contacting N2Net. N2Net reserves the right to cancel this automatic recurring payment option at any time. If the automatic recurring charge payment option is cancelled, Client is responsible for making arrangements with and agreed to by N2Net to pay the total amount due on the Invoice each month.  Any returned check or declined credit or debit card payment will result in a $25.00 charge posted to the Client’s account.

    7. Relocation Fees.   If Client requires that the initial connection be disconnected and reconnected to a different location, Client agrees to pay any fees assessed by the local telecommunications carrier for such circuit relocation to Client’s serviced location and for any disconnect and installation charges that may be charged by the local carrier and/or N2NET.
