Disconnection of Service for Non-Payment:
If your service was terminated for nonpayment, you may reestablish service by bringing your account current. You must also pay a $75 reconnection fee, plus a security deposit if applicable. Payment must be made in full. We will not accept or extend payment arrangements after a service has been disconnected.
Checks are not accepted as payment for disconnected service. Payment must be made with cash, credit/debit card, or money order.
To guarantee reconnection on the same day, payment must be received by 3 p.m. that day. Absolutely no service will be reconnected after hours if disconnected for nonpayment.
