Frequently Asked Questions
Under warranty, you have access to 24x7 technical phone support, as well as onsite support as needed. While most interruptions are resolved with a simple phone call, it may take up to 7–10 days for a certified technician to visit your home or business to restore service, under the warranty. With Express Repair, if a visit is deemed necessary to restore your service, then a technician will be onsite by 5:00pm the next business day with Express Repair Premium; with Express Repair Basic, you will be contacted by the technician by 12:00pm the next business day to schedule an appointment (available to residential customers only). Service may be delivered as soon as that day or on the next business day.
