The standard installation includes the mounting of an antenna (a wireless transceiver on the outside of the house/building), and the routing of cable(s) by the most direct path to one computer and/or router on the CUSTOMER’s premises. Fishing of walls and or attic crawling is not included with standard installation. The connecting of multiple computers, routers, or other equipment at CUSTOMER’s premises may require additional costs in equipment and wiring. Any requests for custom installation work will require additional costs. or charges by RANCH WiFi LLC or its contractor(s). RANCH WiFi LLC and any contractor(s) will not be liable for any alterations to CUSTOMER’s premises that result from the installation or removal of the SU and/or wiring including any holes in walls, cable wiring or antenna mounting brackets; although great care will be used to make the installations reasonably appealing.

OBSTRUCTIONS

Wireless Internet communications is dependant on a clear Line of Sight to the Access Point (AP), which is the point where the wireless connects to our broadband ISP partner(s). RANCH WiFi LLC will make every reasonable effort to provide our CUSTOMER with the best SERVICE possible. Unfortunately, some locations could experience changes in SERVICE due to seasonal changes, i.e. spring and summer foliage, which in turn affect the line of sight to the AP. RANCH WiFi LLC will make every reasonable effort to relocate or realign the antenna. However RANCH WiFi LLC cannot prevent Line of Sight problems, and therefore cannot guarantee SERVICE or be liable for any loss of SERVICE.

PAYMENT POLICY

RANCH WiFi LLC will invoice its CUSTOMERS by email, monthly, with the exception of the first month’s service charge and equipment, payable at the time of installation. The invoice balance can be paid with check, credit card or money order, payable to Ranch WiFi LLC. The payment is due every month. Any CUSTOMER who is 15 days late is subject to limited Internet access and a $25 late fee. After 30 days, late the account speed will be deactivated.

In particular, should a CUSTOMER operate his own wireless network for household or business use, then it must be secured with at least WPA, WEP, or other effective method to restrict access from the general public.
