• DSL Service is a Single Line Exchange Service that provides Circuit-Switched Voice Service and digital connectivity to a high-speed data link for residence or business service Customers.
• DSL Service is provided by utilizing Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) technology. ADSL is a network technology that utilizes single line service and special modems to provide high-speed data access.
• DSL Service utilizes a Digital Subscriber Line Access Multiplexer (DSLAM) and existing end user facilities extended from the Company’s central offices and cabinets to the Customer’s premises.
• DSL Service is asymmetrical in that more bandwidth is delivered downstream to the Customer than is delivered upstream from the Customer back to the network.
Provision of Service
DSL service is provisioned over GRTI’s existing end user facilities to provide a connection between the Customer’s premises and GRTI’s central offices and cabinets.
GRTI will qualify DSL service between GRTI’s central offices/cabinets and the Customer’s premises.

Rates and Charges
A Residence Line or Business Line, as specified in the Gila River Telecommunications, Inc. Local Exchange Tariff, is required for each line equipped with DSL Service. The following rates and charges are in addition to the rates and charges for any other services necessary to establish connectivity to GRTI’s Central Offices and Cabinets DSLAM.
(Minimum 12 Month Commitment) Monthly charges for DSL Service are $34.91 per line equipped plus local telephone service rate for each residence or business telephone line; please refer to local tariff for telephone rates. A one-time fee of $125 will be assessed for DSL installation.
3-Year Contract Terms and Study Area Fees
Monthly charges for DSL Service provided under a 3-Year contract are offered on an individual case basis. Please contact Gila River Telecommunications, Inc. directly as contract terms are subject to negotiation.
Early Termination Charge
Early termination charges are applicable if a Customer commits to DSL under a term agreement and terminates service prior to the end of agreement term. The early termination charge is equal to the number of months remaining in the term agreement times the monthly contracted rate under said agreement. For example, if a customer signed up for DSL under a 1-year term and terminates DSL after two months, the early termination charge would be the monthly contracted rate multiplied by 10 (remaining months in the now-terminated contract).
