Proactive monitoring means we know first.
In DDA support is not reactive, it is proactive. DDA will know first when a network element has issues or there is an emergency that requires immediate rectification.
We offer high-speed services starting at $69.95. Prices vary based upon the maximum upload and download speed of the service plan. Not all services are available in all areas. To see what pricing you qualify for please fill in the request consultation form access from the top of this screen
In most cases, no. In order to simplify pricing and provide our customers the best possible service, the wireless radio placed on your business is the strict and sole property of DDA and is not to be accessed, altered, adjusted, or tampered with in any way. In the event that your equipment needs replacing, DDA will do so at no cost to you except in cases of intentional damage or negligence. “Equipment” refers only to radio that we install on your business to make the connection available. Customers are responsible for purchasing other items such as routers, range extenders, and other home networking devices.
With all of our wireless services, we place an antenna on your business (typically along the roofline pointing to the nearest tower which has a clear line of sight) and run an Ethernet cable along the outside of your home. We then run this cable into your home directly to your computer or–if you like–a wireless router if you wish to enable a wireless network in your home. Custom installations (such as complex installs, long runs, wireless extender radios, and other special requests) are available for an extra fee.
We aim to have a customer who signs up for service installed within 7 days, however this schedule can and does vary, especially during seasonal weather when it is not safe for our technicians to be on the roof of your business. If the weather during your appointment window is not suitable for our technician to perform the install, we will notify you of this change and make an effort to reschedule your installation at your earliest convenience. As soon as our technician has installed your equipment, your Internet is ready to use!
Yes, a person 18 years of age or older must present so our technician may obtain written authorization to perform the installation. When a technician installs your equipment, he or she is required to enter your business in order to establish a connection with your computer or router. The technician will enter your home to test the Internet connection and ensure it is fully functioning.
Depending on the type of service you have and the nature of your installation, a technician may take up to 2-3 hours to install your service. In some situations, the cabling of your home may be more complex which takes a little more effort and time!
We give all appointments a four-hour window for the arrival of our technician. While we strive to have our technician arrive at the start of the window, there are circumstances that do arise which may delay their arrival, so please keep that in mind when scheduling your day during your appointment window.
If you are a customer who would like to use multiple devices on their Internet connection, you need to set up a wireless network. These devices can include smartphones, laptops, tablets, cable boxes, and much more. Enabling a wireless network is as simple as purchasing a wireless router. A wireless router can typically be bought at any location that carries electronic equipment, or you may purchase one with DDA for $99.99. If you purchase a router from DDA, we will configure it for you for no additional charge!
Yes. While some generic brands work, they do not have the longevity of more popular and reliable brands like Netgear. A router is likely to be a long-term investment, and is worth paying more for quality. However, do not pay more for a router that you do not need. While a High Powered router might sound appealing, it is probably not necessary. Unless you plan to network over a large area (separate buildings) you do not need to purchase a High Powered router. Standard routers are known to provide connections throughout a home, even larger, multi-story residences (if they are properly placed.) If you have any questions about routers, please contact our technical support department and they will attempt to answer any questions you may have.
Almost all brands and makes of routers are welcomed by DDA. Additionally, any 2Wire or modem/router combination devices that you may have purchased for DSL Service will not function with our Wireless Service. If you have questions about what router you should purchase or if your current router is compatible, feel free to contact our technicians for further information.
An IP (Internet Protocol) address identifies a computer or other device on the Internet for the purposes of sending or receiving data. It is much like a telephone number. Typically, our customers are assigned an IP address “dynamically”, which means that the IP address will change. A “static” IP address will be an IP address which is assigned specifically for your use, and will not change. Static IP address service is offered for an additional charge.
DDA’s their billing system accepts payments strictly on a monthly basis.
As a condition of service, all customers are contractually required to have their monthly service charges paid automatically by having a credit card or debit card with the Visa / MasterCard logo on file with us. All accounts are charged automatically on the 1st day of every month. Service is paid for a month in advance.
No. Each account is scheduled for billing on the 1st and we do not make exceptions. The only instance in which we would not bill your card on the 1st is when we receive a payment from a customer prior to the 1st of the month.
