  • If we need to install an outlet to the location that is desired for the service, we will provide an estimate of a one time installation charge to the customer.
  • Once funding for the recurring fees and/or the installation charge have been established we will install the cabling and activate the service.
  • If it is determined that there is already an outlet in place where needed, we will activate the service and place the customer in billing for that outlet.
