Why Should I Have It?
Superior Wi-Fi Internet – The latest Wi-Fi routers are faster and more versatile than ever, offering many powerful new features. One important feature makes it possible for the router to send data over two different radio frequencies or “bands”: the 2.4 GHz band and the 5 GHz band. Routers that use both bands are called “dual-band” router.

Wire Maintenance and Equipment – If there were to be an issue with the equipment, you can be assured that a Gorham TelCom technician will walk you through trouble shooting the issue. If said issue can’t be resolved over the phone, then the technician would come to your home to fix or replace the equipment.

Without Tech Schield – There may be a $100 charge for a technician to repair wiring, jacks, or other problems that they may find.
