What Charges Will Appear on My Very First Wave Bill?+
There are a number of factors that impact the amount of your first Wave statement, not the least of which is the type and number of services you’ve purchased. Here are several factors to keep in mind when reviewing your first Wave statement.
- Based on what day of the month you signed up, Wave will bill you a prorated portion of your regular monthly service charges for the current month. This applies to Internet and Phone services.
- All standard taxes and fees appropriate for your state and local region will be included for the current month.
- In keeping with industry standards, Wave bills one month in advance including estimated taxes and fees for Internet services. So, in addition to the prorated portion of the first month’s service changes, you will also be charged the entire amount of the following month’s regular monthly service charges, taxes and fees. This is typically the reason why your first statement will be larger than succeeding statements, at least where Internet service is concerned. (See item “d” below regarding phone services.)
- Phone services, in some part are based on variable usage, and therefore not billed a month in advance. So, while you will see a prorated charge for the first month’s service, you will not see an advance charge for the next month’s service, as is the case with Internet service. This, together with your prorated charge for your first month of service makes your phone charges appear less than is typical.
- Installation fees, if any, are typically included in your first statement following the technician’s installation visit.
- If you are upgrading to different a service bundle, expect to see either prorated and/or advance service charges appear on your statement for the new services. Likewise, if you are downgrading, expect to see your next statement reflect prorated service changes based on the date you stopped the service.
What Taxes And Fee's Does Wave Add To My Bill?+
Taxes and fees charged to customers vary based on the services you are purchasing the state or local region in which you live. The Internet Infrastructure Fee helps defray costs associated with building and maintaining a fiber rich broadband network, as well as the costs of expanding network capacity to support the continued increase in customers’ average broadband consumption. In addition, you may also be charged data transfer fees if you exceed the included data transfer amount within the calendar month.
When Is Payment Due For My Wave Bill?+
To avoid the possibility of incurring late fees, Wave recommends paying your bill immediately upon receiving your monthly statement. Your due date is listed on your monthly statement, on each page in the upper right hand corner.
Will I be Charged a Late Fee if I Do Not Pay My Wave Bill On Time?+
Wave encourages customers to make timely payments to avoid late fees and possible service interruption. Wave reserves the right to charge late fees when payments are not made on time. If you are charged a late fee, you will be notified through a printed message on your bill.
