Due to the limitations of the ADSL technology, ADSL may not available in some areas. Your application will be processed and your line will be tested for ADSL compatibility. Even if ADSL is not currently available in your area, please fill out an application form since we are working hard to expand our ADSL service. Your application helps us know where ADSL is most needed.
No, you will need an ADSL modem. We offer specific ADSL modems for specific plans with term contracts. For broadband service without contracts we have modems for sale. The sale of the modem is non refundable. You May purchase our own modem but Flow will not guarantee that it will work with our service.
Filters eliminate noise on the telephone line caused by your ADSL modem. A microfilter is required on each telephone extension that is not connected to the ADSL modem. Flow will provide a maximum of three (3) free filters. You may purchase additional filters from Flow.

You will be provided with a self-installation kit. The kit may contain a self-installation CD that will walk you through the installation process, including connecting and setting up your ADSL modem. If no CD is present simply follow the instructions provided.
