We've done off-hours turnups before, at my previous job with a
decent-sized ISP. Some would come back with an off-hours turnup fee which
we would turn around beat up our sales rep for, and they would usually
reduce or waive it. Most of the fees were pretty low, like $500 or so.
$5-$10k seems exorbitant for what amounts to a 'no shutdown', doing some
basic acceptance testing and maybe, at the edge of the envelope, turning
up a BGP session and testing that, too :-)
Does anyone else require HICAP loop installs to be after hours? What
experiences have you had (good or bad) with getting the carriers to do
their work during off-peak hours for a reasonable fee?
I'd suggest talking to your sales rep to see if the "Free Install" promo
extended to off-hours activations, or better yet, beat your sales rep up
and see what happens...
We did off-hours turnups for our customers if they requested it.
