WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THE INSTALLATION COST?

Current standard installation with Mainstream is $200.00.  During the installation, an installation technician runs a fiber cable from the mainline directly to the side of your home. Equipment is then placed, specifically, a Network Interface Device (NID) is put on the exterior of the residence, and is connected to a Wi-Fi router that is placed inside the house.

HOW RELIABLE IS THE SERVICE? IS IT AFFECTED BY WEATHER?

Fiber optic service is the most reliable type of internet service available because the cables are often on the same poles as your electrical wires, or they are buried underground, meaning that so long as you have electricity, you should have service. Typically the service is only interrupted by a true break in the cable or regular network upgrades.
