When you are asked to sign the Broadband User Agreement to have them run the lines to your house, you are committing to using their services once they have been ran. They say you are not but if you read the agreement carfully (the fine print), you are legally obligated to use their services no matter what they charge. They do not tell you their rates but that doesnt matter. You are signing a contract that binds you to everything that is written.

What they say does not matter, it is what's written on the agreement that is enforceable.

You are giving away your rights to choose something that may be cheaper and possibly better.

Do you have a copy of the agreement that can be posted somewhere?
I would like to take a look at it before I give them a call.
Thanks for the headsup..

You can swing by their office and pick one up.

The contract does not bind you to any services!!!! Only to have the lines run and the box attached to your home. The contracts have been revised to remove this confusion. Those who continue to stall on this process will only regret it later when the grant is gone and full construction costs fall to the owner of the property to pay.

When was the contract revised? The one that I reviewed does bind you to their services. I showed it to our company appointed attorney and they confirmed my concerns. The one I saw was presented to me about 5 weeks ago. Chris, you seem to be pretty confident in your views.
same contract as before

Chris doesnt know what he is talking about. The Cass broadband user agreement was not re-written as Chris stated.I just checked on it and it still the same contract. Not sure where Chris is coming up with this information but like many Cass County residents, they are being scared into signing it.
