NOTICE TO TELEPHONE SUBSCRIBERS
BOSTIC, N. C., OCTOBER 15, 1919.
TO THOSE OF THE SUBSCRIBERS OF THE RUTHERFORD
COUNTY TELEPHONE COMPANY WHO ARE IN
ALL SUBSCRIBERS ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED THAT ALL
TELEPHONE SERVICE WILL BE DISCONTINUED FROM
PHONES IN ARREARS FOR RENT ON THE LAST DAY OF
A few months ago we adopted the policy of allowing our sub
scribers to pay their telephone bills at their bank monthly, instead
of making personal soliciation or payment to each of them. This
policy was adopted in order to save the expense of personal solici
tation and apply the expense thus saved to providing bette? service
A great part of our subscribers do not seem to appreciate this
favor, made for their benefit, judging from the large number of
unpaid bills on our books.
We trust that this notice will be heeded and that all subscrib
ers in arrears will make immediate settlement. Improved and
efficient service cannot be expected unless 'phone rents are paid.
The question of operating the business of this company is
indeed a serious one to you, as well as to this company. It fis
absolutely impossible for us to render efficient service unless our
patrons pay their bills. We are making improvements in
equipment and service, and intend from time to time to make ad
ditional improvements. But in order to be able to do so, our
patrons must pay their bills monthly.
It is a fact that a very large number of our subscribers fail and
neglect to pay their telphone bills. This company does not want
to be compelled to take the 'phone out of any residence or busi
ness house, but, unless our patrons pay their bills promptly, we
will be forced to remove the 'phones from those who fail to pay.
We are publishing this notice as a warning to all patrons of
the company that unless telephone bills are promptly paid service
will be discontinued from those who fail to pay.
Won't you help us in our efforts to improve both our equip
ment and service?
Can you expect service unless you pay your telephone bills?
While we would regret to discontinue service from anyone,
we have on file many applications for telephone service from
those who are willing to pay. Your failure to meet your bills not
only interferes with your own servic, but pervents others, who
are anxious and willing to have and pay for service, from having
We appreciate very gratefully the promptness with which
many of our patrons meet and pay their bills every month, and
this notice is not intended to apply to any of them.
