Tips for Saving Money and Time
Consolidating departmental work orders (using the same Centrex account number) when requesting services will reduce service order charges.
Comparing monthly cost of current line/circuit and equipment with new installation cost may show that a short-period disconnect is not cost effective.
Bringing equipment connected by modular jacks to the TAMU Phone Mart when a replacement is needed or disconnect has been requested, saves on service charges. The TAMU Phone Mart is located at 1501 Texas Avenue South in College Station. It is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Processing time for work orders can be reduced if all needed information is included on the work order. Please contact Telecommunications at 979.845.1020 if assistance is required in preparing the work order.
