A tech has to install the phone service to verify that it is working properly so you are able to call the authorities in the event of an emergency.
working properly? bwa-ha-ha.....
when the contract tech left my place, suppose it kind of worked.... with the phone number of the previous modem user that lived in another city!
I had to ask one of people that called it looking for their friend to find out what the number was, so I could give my friends the number... but that only worked for something like 2 days, which was when it and my internet went dead. took something like 2 more days of calling in to find the right tech to resolve the issue and get me working with the right phone number.--
