• Bills are mailed on the first of every month and payment is due by the 20th.
• ITS customers are charged for some services such as local telephone service, and Internet access one month in advance. (If you begin service in the middle of a billing cycle, you will be billed for that partial month and the month you pay in advance.) You are billed for long distance after calls are made, with each call itemized on your statement.
• Bills not paid by the 20th of the month are considered delinquent and a late fee will be imposed. Late payments may adversely affect your credit rating with ITS Fiber making an additional deposit necessary or causing service to be disconnected.

Do Not Call Registry
The Federal government has a national registry to make it easier and more efficient for you to stop getting telemarketing calls you don’t want. You can register online at www.donotcall.gov or call toll-free, 1-888-382-1222 (TTY 1-866-290-4236), from the number you wish to register. Registration is free. Please note that it can take up to 31 days for your phone number to be actively listed in the registry.
This is the illegal practice of changing a customer’s long distance service to another carrier without the customer’s consent or knowledge.
Here’s what to do if you’ve been slammed:
- Contact the unauthorized carrier to explain that you did not authorize any changes and request to be switched back to your original calling plan. Contact ITS Fiber to see if we can help.
- Demand that any charges for switching be removed from your bill. Under the Federal Communications Commission slamming rules, you are not required to pay for the first 30 days of any service after being slammed. If you have already paid, you can seek a reimbursement by filing a complaint. Contact your state public utility or service commission or the FCC for information on how to request a reimbursement. The FCC offers guidelines on what to do if you have been slammed and if you have already paid the bill. Log on to the FCC web site at http://www.fcc.gov/slamming.
