All rented equipment must be returned on that date, in good and working condition along with original packaging, or the retail cost of that equipment will be payable at that time as well. Actual performance may vary due to conditions outside of RGV's network control. These conditions may include variables such as customer location, physical equipment limitations, network congestion and server and router speeds of web sites accessed, inside wiring, or telephone line conditions. Unless either RGV or the Customer terminates Service in writing, the contract will extend under the original terms, conditions, and rates on a month-to-month basis at the conclusion of the term indicated on the original contract.
