A Worry-Free Installation for DSL can consist of two (2) parts, namely a Telecom Installation and an installation of the Hardware. If it appears that a Telecom Installation is necessary, edpnet will try to have both the Telecom Installation and the installation of the Hardware carried out by an edpnet technician so that only one (1) appointment is required. If it turns out that it is not possible to have the Telecom Installation carried out by an edpnet technician, it will be carried out by a Proximus technician.
