How is my bill paid?

  • We use paperless billing to automatically charge the payment method - bank account, credit or debit card - you've provided to us each month.

  • It also will include one-time charges - like lease and installation fees - that won't appear on any other bills; that's why you may see double-line items for these things on that first bill.
