  • You agree that you will use a surge protector on the modem at all times.
  • You agree to unplug the power supply during thunderstorms.
  • You understand that the internet speed provided is based on several variables, such as your distance from Smithville’s equipment and your in-home wiring.
  • If your DSL no longer works for any reason, it is your responsibility to contact the Technical Support line and report the problem.
  • You understand that additional charges may apply if you need additional wiring in your home for DSL service to work.
  • You understand that the modem is the property of Smithville. If you cancel service, you must return the modem or be charged for a replacement modem and any additional equipment that has been provided, including the Ethernet cable, the power supply, the surge protector, and however many micro-filters were provided to you.
