EarthLink Service Contracts & Miscellaneous Costs

Everything You Need to Know

Here comes the most crucial part. Understanding things like the contract, and other upfront costs that you incur when you subscribe to the EarthLink service.

EarthLink offers internet plans with a 12-month contract. Meaning you get to pay the same price for one full year with no surprises. But, if for any reason you cancel the contract before the end of the term, EarthLink would charge you an Early Termination Fee up to $200. The exact amount depends on how many months remain under your contract.

Some costs are upfront like the professional installation fee. EarthLink HyperLink connections require a pro-install which costs a one-time fee of $69.95. But, if you have a DSL connection, you can choose to self-install for under $20.

As for the internet equipment with your EarthLink internet plan, you can pay an equipment rental fee of $6.95 a month. Or, you can opt to pay a one-time cost and purchase the equipment upfront. Again, with a HyperLink connection you must use EarthLink provided modem with Wi-Fi. But, with an EarthLink DSL connection you can opt to BYOD.

EarthLink Availability

Here is Where You Can Find EarthLink Internet

After its launch in 1994, EarthLink service was available in 98 cities. But, with changing times, evolving internet tech, corporate mergers and acquisitions, EarthLink network coverage expanded.

Today, the EarthLink internet service is available in 30+ states. And, most urban service locations have fiber optic lines running either up to a distribution point in residential neighborhoods, or the subscriber’s location. Suburban and rural areas tend to depend more on twisted copper lines to carry data over longer distances. But, EarthLink is spreading its fiber optic tentacles fast, with an aim to make fiber powered internet reach underserved America. So, it may not be too long before all EarthLink service locations come to enjoy the benefits of Fiber powered internet.
