  • We may replace the modem, Wi-Fi gateway, or maintenance plan equipment with a similar or refurbished product.
  • Lost or stolen equipment may be replaced at the market rate. If damaged or destroyed by any other cause, it may also be replaced.
  • We must receive the defective equipment within 30 days of notifying us. If we receive items after 30 days, you will be billed for the equipment replacement.
