My first bill appears to be higher than normal. Why?

Monthly line charges are billed one month in advance. This means that your first bill will include one full month of line and feature charges plus the pro-rate for the partial month when you started to use FirstLight. Remember, your formal local service provider should issue you a credit for the unused portion of monthly service charges on your final bill.
