At South Slope, the safety of our customers and employees is our top priority. We are following the COVID-19 (coronavirus) prevention recommendations and have implemented stringent measures to ensure safe, secure operations at a time when you are most reliant on our services. Please read the following for details of our commitment to you during these unsettling times. We will continually update this page, (southslope.com/coronavirus) and will post on our Facebook and Twitter pages so please check back and follow us.
If you need to contact South Slope Customer Service, we encourage you do so from the safety of your home or business. You can call us 24/7 at 319-626-2211, live chat with us between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mon-Fri at southslope.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also manage your account, including viewing your bill and opening a trouble ticket through SmartHub.
If you need to come to our office, we will be conducting all customer visits through our drive-up window to ensure safety for you and our employees. Our drive-up hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you need to return equipment, please place it in the bin located outside our north entrance between 8 am and 4 pm Mon – Fri (not available on holidays or weekends).
To ensure the safety of our employees, who, in turn take care of our customers, we have instituted telecommuting where possible, separated workforce into multiple locations throughout our serving territories, and created more space between employees working in our main office.
As your trusted local provider, our priority is taking care of you as you navigate this trying time. We are committed to providing reliable services backed by excellent customer support and continue to install new services, upgrade services and make repairs for customers.
We continue to install internet and phone service at homes and businesses. We also have self-installation options for some of our services. If you are interested in self-installation, please let us know. For the safety of our customers and employees, we are not currently installing television service due to the amount of time needed to be in the home or business.
Please see the Appointments section for the measures we are taking to ensure your safety. Call us at 319-626-2211 to see how we can help keep you connected at a time when you need it the most.
Do you have an appointment for South Slope to come to your home or business? We are closely following CDC guidelines for cleanliness, and have implemented additional sanitation procedures to prevent the spread of the virus, including properly cleaning hands, equipment and tools before and after each appointment.
When scheduling an appointment, we will ask if you or someone in your home or business is ill or experiencing flu-like symptoms; or is under quarantine. In those cases, we will need to schedule the appointment 14 days out. Prior to your appointment, we will email you a Coronavirus/COVID-19 Risk Disclosure, Waiver and Release which will need to be signed before our South Slope technician enters your home or business.
The South Slope technician will be wearing a mask at your appointment. We are also asking that anyone in your home or business above the age of two who will be in the same room as the technician wear a mask and maintain social distancing during the appointment. If you do not have masks, we can provide them for you. If you have any questions or need to reschedule your appointment, please call us at 319-626-2211.
We understand that the need for a reliable internet, phone and television connection is greater now than ever before. We are continually monitoring our network to ensure that all of our customers will have a strong and reliable connection when they need it the most.
As so many of you have moved to working and learning from home, we have redistributed internet traffic onto multiple fiber-optic rings to minimize the risk of network congestion. We have also increased our backhaul capacity almost 3 times as the need for connectivity and faster transmission of data increases daily.
If you are having issues with your internet, phone or television service, please call us 24/7 at 319-626-2211, live chat with us between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Mon-Fri at southslope.com or email email@example.com.
If you need to increase your internet speeds during this time and are on our fiber network, we are able to change your internet plan within one business day and you will not be charged an activation fee. As always, our internet plans come with unlimited data. View South Slope Internet Plans

COVID-19 has brought to light many safety concerns when it pertains to large groups of people and social gatherings. Based on recommendations from the CDC and to ensure public safety, we have canceled Community Center events through December 11th. For those that have events scheduled in this timeframe, we will work with you to find a new date or we can provide a refund.
If the CDC recommendations on the size of gathering or timeline change, we will update this page at that time. If you have any questions, please contact our Community Center Coordinator, Emily Thole, at 319-665-5430 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage you to take precautionary measures and regularly clean your devices.
With the coronavirus sweeping the world, it is also propelling scammers to prey upon fears as a way to steal your information. We recommend being on the lookout for scams and following the tips we provide in our coronavirus blog.
It’s also important to protect your information while using Wi-Fi. If your network isn’t secure, hackers can steal valuable private data such as credit card and banking information.
