ThinkBig Networks, LLC Customer Services Agreement

Installation Cost: Standard installation of a ThinkBig connection includes bringing the fiber optic connection into the customer residence to a location within 10 feet of a standard power outlet. Best efforts will be made to accommodate subscribers desired location, but ultimately the FIBER path and demarcation decision is made by ThinkBig Networks, LLC. The standard fee also includes the installation of a working ThinkBig ONT and wireless device. Non-Standard Installations: If it is not possible for ThinkBig to perform a standard installation, Customer will receive a report of the connection options available. The report will include optional mounting configurations and their respective costs. Customer may at that time choose one of the available options or decline services. If the Customer declines services, Customer will be refunded all deposits made.

 

Non-Standard Driveway Installations: A standard driveway installation is one where it is possible to install the fiber optic customer connection using a vibratory plow or other standard installation equipment. In the event that more extensive installation methods are required such as directional boring, or trenching, Customer will receive a report of the installation options available and the estimated cost for this installation.
