There are two parts to
the Deru DSL Surfer Package. First, there is the DSL service which
is provided by
Qwest. Second, there is the ISP service provided by Deru Internet.
Qwest will bill you each month for the
DSL service and Deru Internet will bill you separately for the ISP
service. Deru Internet will place the order
with Qwest for you when you call . We recommend this
method of ordering service, so that we can manage the installation
process. Alternatively, you can order the service through Qwest
1-877-634-2327, or by ordering online at Qwest's
website. Please make sure to designate "Deru Communications"
as your ISP of choice, otherwise you may not get the quality Internet
service you deserve. If you currently have DSL service through Qwest,
and are changing your ISP to Deru Internet, you will need to call
this number 1-800-218-4443. Choose option 1. Be sure to call or
email us, so that we know that you are switching.
