An update regarding the Keep Americans Connected Pledge:
What did the pledge do?
- We waived late fees that any residential or small business customers incurred because of their economic circumstances related to COVID-19.
- We did not terminate service to any residential or small business customers because of their inability to pay their bills due to disruptions caused by COVID-19.
If you took part in this pledge:
- Please contact (or have an authorized user on the account contact) customer service to arrange your payment agreement. (800) 438-2355
- Pay 20% of your total balance up front, then the remaining balance will be split into payments over the next 12 months and added to your monthly invoice total.
To avoid service interruption, payments must start before July 10, 2020
