Diagram # 1



a) NorthernTel is responsible for providing and maintaining service to this point. At this point, you can plug in a telephone that you know is working to test your service.

b) The Customer is responsible for providing a lock.

In premises without a NID, the demarcation point is the protector mounted on the exterior wall. If there is no demarcation jack installed in your house or office, the demarcation point will be located at the telephone protector, which can be located either inside or outside your house or office. The telephone protector is usually black in colour, if located inside, and usually grey, if located outside.

2. Correcting any service difficulty that you create which harms NorthernTel’s network.

3. Providing a route for telephone wiring from your property line to your premises whether you install wiring underground or using an aerial system.

4. Paying a service charge when NorthernTel makes a repair visit to your premises in order to remedy problems resulting from wiring that was improperly installed or maintained.

5. Assuming the following risks when installing or maintaining inside wiring:

  • Loss of service
     
     
  • Damage to property
     
     
  • Personal injury or injury to your agent
     
     

NorthernTel will not be responsible for any liability claims arising from customer- owned or maintained premises wiring.

ELECTRICAL INSPECTION AND PERMIT

The Canadian Electrical Code (CEC) and provincal laws may require you to apply for a permit when pre wiring, adding to, or rearranging telephone wiring. You may also be required to have the work inspected upon completion. Contact your local (Provincial or Municipal) Electrical Inspection Branch for further information. Outlets (jack hardware) should be Canadian Standards Association (CSA) certified for the intended purpose.
