The easiest utility to remove from your monthly budget is CATV services.
The most obvious cost is the monthly fee associated to the service; however there are many unrealized costs associated to the theft.
Broken equipment to gain service.
Technician wages to disconnect thieves and/or repair damaged or broken equipment.
Dispatch personnel wages used to dispatching the technician.
Loss damage personnel wages used to tracking the theft and any continual audits.
Supervisory/Management wages lost.
There is also the possibility of losing paying subscribers due to the quality of service that usually degrades when theft occurs.
Many service providers lose anywhere from millions to billions of revenue annually. With operating cost increasing, so will the costs of the services provided. Service pricing goes up, so does the theft of service.
Stop theft at the source before it happens. Reduce your operating costs from the very first install.
