The customer authorizes NWIC Inc. or its contractor(s) to install the necessary wiring and Subscriber Unit (SU/CPE) required for Internet service on the premises specified by the customer at the time of installation. The standard installation includes the mounting of an antenna and/or SU/CPE, a wireless transceiver on the outside of the house and/or building, the routing of cable(s) by the most direct path to one computer and/or router on the customer’s premises. Fishing of walls and/or attic crawling is not included with standard installation. The connecting of multiple computers at the customer’s premises may require addition costs in equipment and wiring not provided by NWIC Inc. Any requests for custom installation work will require additional charges by our contractor(s). NWIC Inc. and its contractor(s) will not be liable for any alterations to customer’s premises that result from the installation or removal of the SU/CPE and/or wiring including any holes in walls, cable wiring or antenna mounting brackets; although great care will be used to make the installations reasonably appealing.
Wireless Internet communications is dependant on a clear Line of Sight to the Access Point (AP), which is the point where the wireless connects to our broadband ISP partner(s). NWIC Inc. will make every reasonable effort to provide our customer with the best service possible. Unfortunately, some locations could experience changes in service due to seasonal changes, i.e. spring and summer foliage, which in turn affects the line of sight to the AP. NWIC Inc. will make every reasonable effort to relocate or realign the SU. However NWIC Inc. cannot prevent Line of Sight problems, and therefore cannot guarantee service or be liable for any loss of service.
