Jacks and Wiring
Learn about jacks and wiring
Verizon offers a worry-free fixed fee rate to install or rewire telephone jacks for residential customers.
As a residential customer, you are responsible for the wiring inside of your home.
Wire maintenance may not be your responsibility if you live in an apartment, dorm, condo, co-op, nursing home or other group living facility. Contact your landlord or manager to determine responsibility. Verizon does not provide the repair or replacement of telephone or related equipment.
Verizon can install jacks and wiring. You may also do the work yourself or hire a contractor.
Verizon also offers wire maintenance coverage for inside jacks and wiring for a monthly fee. If the problem is in the wiring outside your home on the company side of the network, Verizon will resolve it, in most cases, at no cost to you. However, if the problem is inside your home, repair charges may apply.
