Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note:This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice.

1) Will you want to work for another service provider right away after this current position terminates?
2) Is the non compete for MILEAGE, or LENGTH OF TIME, or both?
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
The issues are that the non-compete essentially bars one from working for a competitor for one year. While excessive non-competes may be struck down, 1 year NCs are common and generally upheld. If someone in your situation works for a competitor and the previous company finds out, they can sue YOU for breach of contract and demand damages and an injunction of your work with that new company.
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
