When you’re settling into your new home, unexpected moving expenses are the last thing you’d want—especially on something as important as internet.
But depending on your provider, your internet relocation fees could include a transfer fee, an activation fee, an installation fee, or even an increase in your monthly equipment fee.
Make sure you clarify all your moving costs with your internet provider to avoid hidden fees.
You’ll also want to check if your internet company offers the same services at your new address. You might be able to snag a faster plan for the same price, or—in a less fun turn of events—your available download speeds could slow dramatically.
Changing areas or internet plans (even with the same provider) may mean your equipment needs swapping out. Your new equipment may have higher monthly fees than your current equipment—or lower fees, if you’re lucky.
