1. Your Account
You affirm that you are at least 18 years of age. As the account holder, you are responsible for your account and the use of your password. You are responsible for all use of your account, by anyone, unless it can be conclusively proven to the satisfaction of Airnet to have been an unauthorized intrusion. If you believe that there has been unauthorized access to your account, you must change your password and notify Airnet immediately.
a) Rates and Charges: The price of our service to you is as per agreed to at the time of install or fraction thereof payable monthly in advance and you will be charged a first and last month fee at time of install. In addition, there is a connection cost and setup fee of $295.00 unless one of the yearly service plans is chosen. These rates and charges may be subject to change by Airnet Wireless Inc. from time to time by notice to you.

All services provided by Airnet must be paid in advance.

All accounts thirty (30) days past due will accrue interest at twelve (12) percent per annum, and shall be subject to collection and any costs or attorneys fees that collection or suit may entail.
