If we have not received payment during the 15-day period, the payment is considered late. A late notice will be issued if we have not received payment within 30 days of the due date.

Incentives for Fiber Optic Service

If Rock Island installs new fiber optic service and equipment on your property, you have the option of selecting between two types of incentive: The Construction Incentive and the Discount Incentive.

 

The Construction Incentive is a $1500 credit toward your build cost. Rock Island pays your construction costs up to a maximum of $1500, and you are responsible for all construction costs that exceed $1500.

The Discount Incentive is available if you are willing to cover your entire cost of construction. By agreeing to the Discount Incentive, and paying the full cost of construction, you will receive a $20/mo discount on your monthly subscription rate for as long as you are a customer at that address.
