· Managed Wi-Fi is a service that provides Wi-Fi coverage throughout a customer’s home. Most trouble can be resolved remotely, oftentimes without the need for customer involvement. For trouble issues that arise that require customer interaction to resolve, Cooperative Telephone Exchange will provide remote Managed Wi-Fi support via an appointment during regular business hours. Regular system maintenance is provided and verification of system updates and/or firmware. Should the wireless router become inoperable during service, the equipment will be replaced at no cost to the subscriber after undertaking necessary troubleshooting steps. Because the system can be managed remotely, subscribers are able to pick up replacement equipment without a technician visiting your home.
· No service call charges for internet customer troubles that are not resolved by phone when a technician visits the home during normal business hours Monday-Friday for Wi-Fi related issues. Charges may apply if the customer internet problems are not related to Wi-Fi service. Additional equipment and charges will be assessed and discussed if needed to optimize the Wi-Fi experience.
