It also includes installation of one Internet service, one phone install, and up to 2 set top boxes for television.
Fees apply for additional installs and/or services.

Callabyte Technology has contracted Sellenriek Construction Inc. to build the network based on, among other things, their expertise and safety record.
Crews will work with Callaway Electric’s lines, poles and underground electrical locations (where available) to install fiber optics.
In places where we are installing fiber outside of the Callaway Electric service area, the existing city or state utility easements are used. Once the main line construction is complete, drop contractors will be running fiber to those who have signed up for the service. At that time, they will also be installing a box on the side of the location where the fiber service will be entering the building.
Yes and no.
You will be contacted about placement of the box on the outside of your home along with where the fiber line will run across the property. Once this is agreed upon, we can complete the outside work without someone being home. A member of our customer service team will then contact you to schedule the final installation and activation. Our installers will need access inside your location to complete your installation, we ask that someone over the age of 18 is home at that time.
A small fiber panel will be placed on the outside of your home.
The unit is a small clamshell style box that measures 7 inches wide, 10 inches tall and 3 inches deep.
A Callabyte technician will install one of our cutting edge Gigacenter Optical Network Terminals (ONT) in your home.
This unit provides a gigabit wired connection as well as Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac), acting as a router and an access point. Our Gigacenter measures 7.9 inches wide, 10.6 inches tall and 1.8 inches deep. The unit can be placed in a stand (included) or mounted on a wall.
You do not need to purchase a new router to use Callabyte Internet service.
The Callabyte Gigacenter provides wired and wireless access to the Internet for just about any device in your home (laptops, phones, tablets, smart TVs, gaming consoles, etc…). If you prefer to use your own router, that is an option as well.
Callabyte Internet is an unlimited service. There are no data caps.
Callabyte does not provide email services.
You can get a free email account from many different providers (Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, Outlook.com, etc.).
Callabyte's internet packages include free Wi-Fi service. Our routers typically broadcast Wi-Fi signals well up to 50 feet in an average home. The signal will be increasingly less beyond 50 feet. (The range will depend somewhat on the thickness and building material of your walls and other obstructions.) For a large area, or if you have thick walls, you can buy a wireless range extender to boost your signal. Callabyte can sell or lease you a wireless extender to help reach the wireless voids in your home.
If you need help evaluating your coverage reach, the Callabyte tech team is here to help. Give us a call or email 573-826-2371 / email@example.com and ask about our Wireless Extension Service.
