Uniserve Communications Corp., a provider of wholesale and retail Internet services, has filed a debt collection lawsuit in the Supreme Court of British Columbia against one of its customers. It claims that Suntel Networks Inc. of Richmond owes it $448,192, plus $140,169 in interest, for services going back to January, 2018. It is seeking the court-ordered payment of those amounts.
The allegations are contained in a notice of claim that Uniserve filed at the Vancouver courthouse on Monday, Aug. 24. The lawsuit centres around an agreement that Uniserve and Suntel entered into in January, 2018. Uniserve agreed to provide internet services to Suntel for resale to home users. The agreement appears to have contemplated Suntel having limited cash, as Uniserve agreed to finance the purchase of equipment that new customers would require.
The problems, at least according to Uniserve, began soon after. At some point in 2018, Suntel repeatedly failed to pay the invoices it received from Uniserve, the suit states. On May 23, 2019, Uniserve provided Suntel with written notice that it was in breach of the services agreement. According to the suit, Suntel acknowledged that it was behind on payments, and set up a new payment schedule. Suntel also agreed that it would encourage its customers to migrate their services directly to Uniserve, the suit states.
The remainder is available to Stockwatch subscribers.
