Summer and Winter Disconnect Plans

Our seasonal disconnect plans work well for customers needing their RTC services disconnected during the summer or winter. When you go on a disconnect plan your telephone number will be saved and listed in the new directory and your Internet username will also be saved. For the following one-time fees your services will be disconnected when you contact us and they will be automatically reconnected on November 1 for summer disconnects or May 1 for winter disconnects. Please contact us if you would like to reconnect your services prior to these dates.

  • Phone : $30
  • Internet : $25*
  • TV : $30 – Waived when placing phone on disconnect plan at the same time

*Some restrictions may apply. If you are a WildBlue Satellite Speed Internet customer, you will be billed $6.65 per month while you are away. This will give you continued access to your email account. Your WildBlue service will automatically return to full service with the full monthly charge on May 1 (Winter Disconnect Plan) or November 1 (Summer Disconnect Plan). If you need it back to full service prior to these dates, you can contact RTC.
