Welcome to Hometown Entertainment! Thanks for choosing us. Your Service terms and conditions are part of this Customer Agreement (“Agreement”) and are provided by Hometown Entertainment (“Hometown Entertainment”) or one of its affiliates. Your service is for use within the Hometown Entertainment coverage area. Together, your Plan and any features you use are your Service. The current version of this Agreement and the terms and conditions for your Services are available online at HometownEntertainment.us.
By using the Service you are agreeing to every provision of this Agreement whether or not you have read it. This Agreement also applies to anyone who uses your Service.
We’d hate to see you go, but you may cancel service for any reason at anytime.
Internet is prepaid. If you cancel, midmonth, your service will end the last day of the month no matter what day you started. As per our billing cycle, which starts the first of the month. All service is prorated the second month. Cancelling in the first 30 days does not entitle you to continued service in to the prorated second month.
Sadly, due to the trend that seems to have developed in the minds of customers once they cancel, a mindset that they no longer need to worry about the condition of the equipment. They also seem to think that they can just return equipment in a month or two or whenever they like. And due to prevous customers who just threw their routers in to a box with no padding and thought it ok to ship the equipment back in that mannaer I have been forced to change my cancellation procedure.
Upon cancellation, a one time equipment fee of $199.00 will be charged to the method of payment on file. This is a deposit to ensure the safe and speedy return of the equipment that was leased to you. When the equipment is received in good, working condtion a refund will be issued.
Equipment is to be returned to: S&B, PO Box 31, Resaca, GA 30735
If you cancel and have not received your equipment, a fee of $50.00 will be assessed before a complete refund will be issued, this is, for instance, if we must restock or cancel your equipment order. If your account has been activated, no refunds will be provided for the activation, only the equipment fee will be refunded within a 30-day period from the date of installation. Refunds are only issued to customers who have not received service (use of internet) within the first 7 days and only after we have exhausted all means to provide internet service. Any customer who has used an acceptable amount of data, which is defined as 10GB within a one month period, will NOT be entitled to our refund policy. All equipment including our sim card must be returned in working order, before a refund is issued. If your equipment is returned after the intial 30 days of service, and is in good working order, a $75 equipment refund will be issued. Equipment must be returned to S&B, PO Box 31, Resaca, GA 30735.
If your account is cancelled due to non-payment, you must return our sim card, or, a fee of $400 will be billed to you. If your services have been suspended due to non payment, then a fee of $50 will be assessed to reactivate your service.
