Should I use "a" or "the" or "no article" before "global IP network service" in the following case?

This agreement specifies rules for a global IP network service that so and so company provides.

If you're talking about the specific service that a named company provides, then use "the". If the company provides more than one global IP network service, then use "one of the".
