Kennebec Telephone Company's August newsletter.

Text of The Connection August 2009

  • From time to time, a customer will say to me, Im surprised you stock that item; that saved me a trip out of town. While we arent trying to be a hardware store, and we dont have every item under the sun, we do stock a good selection of plumbing items, electrical items, telephones, etc. If we dont have what you are looking for, we usually can get it quickly. So the next time you are tempted to drive out of town, stop in or give us a call. Chances are we just might have what you need.

    Who and Where to call when you have Trouble

    Trouble with telephone, internet, cable TV, electrical, or digging that occurs between the hours of 8:00 and 5:00, Monday through Friday should be reported to Ken-nebec Telephones business office by calling 869-2220. A CSR (Cus-tomer Service Representive) will take your call and create a trouble ticket with all the pertinent information. The CSR will then contact a Technician to repair the problem. Most problems can be repaired the same day that the trouble was reported.

    Troubles that occur after 5 PM, weekends, or holidays should be reported by calling the after hours number at 869-2424. The Technician on call will answer on his radio. These calls sound a little different so try to talk clearly and slowly. Give the Tech a short description of the problem along with a phone number to get back in touch with you. We will then get a person qualified to repair the problem; these are usually done within an hour depending on the situation.

    The trouble tickets get turned in at our office after the problem has been repaired. A CSR will make a follow up call to determine if the job was completed and to make sure you are satisfied with the work that was done. This is a great time for customers to ask questions about services, features, or anything involving Kennebec Telephone.

    Who and Where to call when you have Trouble Cont..

    One question we get a lot is what should I call in about after hours?

    You can call in about any of our services that you have that are not working correctly like a noisy phone, internet not working, CATV channels out, etc.. Ques-tions about bills can only be an-

    swered during our business hours. Some problems may be fixable over the phone, for instance if your high speed internet quit working, a Tech may tell you how to reboot your modem and router. That may get the problem fixed quicker and save us from sending a Tech to your house. Our goal is

    to provide reliable services and to take care of them as quickly as possible if they are not working correctly.
