Service availability and changes
In order for gateway services to be good quality and suitable for practical use, you may need to give us information or help with testing in tight timeframes. Delays with this can affect the planned availability of our services.
Sometimes we’ll need to make changes to, replace or stop a service. We’ll try to give you as much notice as we can, however this may not always be possible.
