Customer Service Agreement

Equipment Lease

Compass Broadband (CBN) will supply and lease to Subscriber, during the term of this agreement, the equipment necessary for connection to CBN internet service. The equipment shall at all times remain the property of the CBN and upon termination of service shall be returned to CBN in the same condition as existed upon execution of this agreement, reasonable wear and tear excepted. Subscriber shall bear all risk of loss, theft, fire, windstorm, lightning, or other hazard. Subscriber shall bear a minimum cost of $50 for a service charge up to the entire cost of a reinstall should the equipment need to be replaced for reasons other than normal wear and tear.By signing this agreement, Subscriber acknowledges that they are the legal property owner or that they have obtained permission to install the equipment of CBN upon the property from the legal owner prior to installation. CBN will not be held liable if Subscriber authorizes the installation without prior approval of the structure owner, and Subscriber shall indemnify and hold harmless CBN for any loss it may sustain as a result of the failure of Subscriber to obtain the permission necessary for the installation of the leased equipment.

Payment of the service fee is due in advance on the first day of the month. Payments not received prior to the 3rd of each month are considered delinquent and will be subject to a $10 late fee. After the 10th of month, the account is subject to termination without additional notice, the service shall be disconnected and the leased equipment may be removed by CBN. In the event the Subscriber wishes to reinstate the account by payment of all past due charges, the account may be subject to an additional $25 reconnect fee, payable prior to the reinstatement of services. The Subscriber shall receive no credit for any days during a billing cycle when service is interrupted due to non-payment of fees. Returned checks are subject to a returned check fee of $35.00, as well as suspension of the account until payment is received. In the event the Subscriber submits a personal check, which is returned unpaid by Subscriber’s bank, Subscriber must pay all future payments with credit card, cash, money order or cashier’s check. Subscriber must supply a current mailing address, phone number and email address. Failure to receive a bill due to postal mistakes, missed emails, or any other reason does not excuse Subscriber from payment obligations.

If a customer moves into a new location within the coverage area, and desires to relocate the service, there will be a $25 relocation fee, payable during the next billing cycle [or, payable prior to the relocation of the service] It is requested that the customer notifies CBN as soon as the date of the move is confirmed.
