Wired Networking Support

Please note: due to COVID-19, IS-Wiring will be prioritizing requests as we receive them. Response times will be delayed. Data activation requests will be performed within 10 working days. While we are accepting requests for new wiring installations, it may be 3-4 weeks after approval before work can be scheduled. We thank you for your patience during this time.
