Peace of mind for all of your favorite services.

No software upgrades, batteries or data required. It’s a phone connection that simply works when you need it.

What is Protection Plus?

Protection Plus includes premiere home Wi-Fi connectivity, wiring maintenance and equipment replacement. Internet subscribers with Protection Plus receive a GigaCenter dual-band wireless router which delivers a strong Wi-Fi signal at blazing fast speeds. Protection Plus also includes a maintenance plan to ensure the inside wiring and jacks in your home, that run your phone, Internet and TV service, will stay in proper working condition. Your Nex-Tech provided Internet equipment is also covered. If it stops working as expected, we will troubleshoot it and repair or replace it for free. Protection Plus is $9.99 per month.

What are the benefits?

  • Exceptional Wi-Fi Internet – The GigaCenter dual-band wireless router, that is provided to our Internet subscribers with Protection Plus, provides outstanding Wi-Fi range and performance throughout your home. This powerful router sends data over two different radio frequencies and dedicates bandwidth across the separate wi-fi networks to avoid interference and support higher upload speeds.
  • Equipment and Wiring Maintenance – In the event that your Nex-Tech provided TV or Internet equipment stops working, you can rest assured that the Nex-Tech technical support team will walk you through the troubleshooting process, and if your issue can’t be resolved over the phone, we’ll arrange for a professional technician to come to your home during normal business hours to fix or replace the equipment.
  • Without Protection Plus – There is a $110/hour charge for a professional technician to troubleshoot and repair wiring, jacks or other issues related to your Nex-Tech services in your home.

What does it cover?

If you experience problems at your home such as static on the line, or failure of your Nex-Tech provided router, Protection Plus will cover the charge for a professional technician to come to your home. After an evaluation, the technician will repair any issues caused by wiring, jacks, Internet service or your Nex-Tech provided wireless router. If the problem is a customer caused issue, such as damage to the equipment, jacks or wiring caused by a pet or by dropping the equipment, Protection Plus will cover only the first occurrence.
