High Speed Internet Agreement
Surge Protector Use Required
Electric surge protectors are available at Staples, Wal-Mart, and many hardware and drug stores. If VTel’s Internet router or other equipment in your home is destroyed because you didn’t use a surge protector you will be billed replacement cost. VTel technicians usually have a spare in their truck, and can provide one at actual cost. Read more about our policy on surge protectors here.
