- Where do I want the equipment to go?
- Quite often homeowners and occupiers choose to have their internet services installed in the study or home office area and then connected to a wireless router allowing them to use their computers or smartphones via the in-premises wireless network. It is worthwhile taking the time to consider the different ways you may use your service so you can have the equipment installed in an appropriate location. If you have not requested a wireless router, you can contact Clear who can assist you. Not this will be sent via post directly to you, the installer does not supply this.
The installer will advise you if the equipment can be installed in your preferred location as part of our standard installation method. There are, however, technical and operational considerations as well as safety requirements which affect where equipment and cables can be installed, just as there are when connection other utility services.
These requirements help to ensure that the installation is done in a safe manner and that the equipment is easily accessible and protected from accidental damage as possible.
- What installation time slots are available?
- The technician will contact you prior to installation to organise a mutually convenient time for the installation to be completed.
Please note that if you cancel your application or miss an appointment once the installation staff are deployed you will incur a $180.00 fee which will be debited from your account at the time this occurs.
- What do I do if I can’t attend the appointment?
- If you have made an appointment, but cannot be there on the appointed day:
Note – If you authorise someone else (aged 18 years or older) to be present on behalf of you for your appointment, they will need to make decisions including where the equipment should be installed and will be required to sigh off on the installation. If you decide later to change the location of the equipment, please contact us and we can organise this for you. Changes will apply and will be quoted accordingly.
