Partial month charges may be incurred when you start a new service or change services prior to your bill date.

    Additional Charges

    Occasionally, you may find a charge on your bill that you’re unfamiliar with. Here, you’ll find a summary of additional charges.

  • Expired Promotional Plan: When your term contract reaches the expiration date, the promotional discounts you received will also expire. Your service will then bill at our everyday low monthly rate. The promotional discount and expiration date is shown in the “Monthly Service Charge” section of your bill.
  • New or changed service(s): If you add/change a service, there may be initial charges reflected in your bill, such as:
  • Activation or setup charges
  • Partial Month charges for the initial days of service billed in addition to the first full month of service.
  • On Demand and Event Charges: These are pay-per-view, video rental, or video purchase charges for on-demand content.
  • Long Distance Charges: Your household may have placed more long-distance calls than expected.
  • Toll Charges: These include directory assistance calls, international calls and collect calls. Check the call detail section of your bill for these types of calls. Collect calls display from and to numbers, date, time, and duration as well as the company assessing the charges.
  • Early Termination Fee: If you cancel service before the end of a special promotional offer, you are responsible for paying any applicable Early Termination Fee. The promotional discount and expiration date is shown in the “Monthly Service Charge” section of your bill.
  • Late Payment Fee: Your bill may have been mailed before your latest payment was received, or you may have missed a payment. If a payment is not received by the billing due date, you will be charged a late fee. The Late Payment Fee is located under the “Other Service Charges and Credits” section of your bill. Call 800.801.6652 to check your balance or make a payment.
