Statement of Account

  • The letter you received is about the enhancements applied to your bill to provide you more relevant information about your account. These enhancements will only affect the format of your bill and no new charges will be applied.

  • Your bill for the month of will already follow the new format. We'll also include a bill insert with it containing more information about the changes in the bill presentation.

  • Please take note of the inclusion of the Advance Monthly Service Fee, as well as the change in the Payment Due Date.

    Advance Monthly Service Fee: Remember the one month deposit that you paid when you first subscribed to you plan? After the enhancement, that payment will be reclassified as your Advance Monthly Service Fee. Under "Discounts & Credit Adjustments" in your bill, you can see that one of the MSFs has been offset. So even if there's 2 MSFs in your bill, you only need to pay for one of them. Please note that the double MSF will only happen once. After that, you'll see one MSF only with every bill.

    Payment Due Date: Your payment due date is now five days earlier. This is to help ensure that in case you are running late in paying your bill, your paid charges will not be carried over to the next month’s bill.

    To further help you see where in the bill these changes will appear, please see sample bill below: eSOA Front
