Drop (Installation) Policy and Surcharge

We will have a pre-signup period up until construction is complete. Exact dates will be announced. We anticipate that anyone who signs up prior to the deadline will receive free ‘standard’ installation. A ‘standard’ installation is one that does not require replacing poles or installing new poles or conduit. In those cases we may have to charge at least part of the cost of new poles and/or conduit, depending on budget considerations. If it is necessary, you will be informed of the charge and given an opportunity to continue with installation or not be charged. Note that there is a separate one-time $99 activation fee for starting up service that is separate than physical installation.

We do not plan to add any surcharge to the WiredWest prices for service. Debt service and depreciation reserve costs will be paid out of tax revenue. If we receive excess revenue at the end of any year, we will apply those to offset the depreciation reserve contributions.
