Wire maintenance essentially serves as insurance or protection for your telephone service. With Comporium’s wire maintenance service, a small monthly fee can save you time, money, and hassle in the event you experience problems with your telephone service and need repairs.

Comporium Communications offers wire maintenance on telephone jacks and wiring at the time of installation. Wire maintenance is available to customers only if Comporium Communications installs the jacks. The cost of the service is $1.95 per month. If an existing telephone customer wants wire maintenance protection, Comporium charges a one-time fee of $7.15. Please note: There may be as much as a six-month waiting period for existing customers to have repairs covered under the wire maintenance plan.

Comporium does not offer wire maintenance service to pre-wired new homes, pre-wired mobile homes, and some apartments.

Wire maintenance does not cover the actual telephone and/or customer-owned equipment such as answering or fax machines. However, if you do not subscribe to Comporium’s wire maintenance service, and Comporium makes a service call and finds the trouble to be in your inside wiring or jacks, you will be charged a $50.00 service charge and the cost of materials to fix the problem.

To order Comporium’s wire maintenance, or if you have any questions regarding the service, please call our business office at 864-461-2211.
