Are there 'Dry Loop' setup
Yes. There is a
setup fee for Residential and Business Dry Loop. This one time fee shows up
when you check for packages. The fee pays for technician's visit to the site
for Dry Loop activations
How am I
DSL charges are
pro-rated based on the calendar date of sign up to the 1st of the next calendar
month. The monthly recurring charges will start again on the 1st of the month.
Customers who have activation scheduled after the 15th of the month will be
billed for an additional month on top of the pro-rated amount. For instance, if
your activation falls on the 21st of the month you will be billed for
approximately 5 weeks of service, depending upon the number of days in the
month. If your activation begins on the 7th you will be billed at sign up for
approximately 3 weeks of service.
Will a technician
No. If you have an
active telephone account with the 'telephone company' it is a simple matter of
plugging in your modem when your service has been activated and going online.
Dry Loop activations do require a technician to attend. The cost for the visit
however, is included in the Dry Loop setup fee.
If there turns out to
be a problem inside the premises (perhaps wiring/jacks having been removed,
altered etc) that do require a phone company technician to make an additional
visit, charges for the second visit are the responsibility of the homeowner or
tenant. We will ask you to authorize the visit beforehand.
