Fee for Service
A Fee for Service may be charged for any works conducted by DCSI or its third party access providers to resolve a service fault where the fault is not found to be on DCSI or its third party access provider’s networks. This Fee for Service is variable and the details of the possible fee(s) will be disclosed to you prior to the works commencing or the booking of an appointment. They are subject to the customers’ approval before proceeding.
If the customer rejects the possibility of a Fee for Service, it is possible that a service fault cannot be resolved by DCSI or its third party access providers.
