  • Shipping the equipment back to RCN - RCN will provide you with a prepaid FedEx shipping label. Please see instructions below.

Using Prepaid FedEx Shipping Labels

RCN appreciates your efforts to return our equipment. To make this transaction as convenient as possible, first call us to schedule the disconnect work order (1-800-746-4726). We can provide you with a prepaid FedEx shipping label. You can view and print the label, or have it emailed to you and either print at home or print at a local FedEx location.

Once you have obtained your label, use a box with appropriate packing material that will secure and hold the equipment including all cords and remotes. Then affix the mailing label, make note of your tracking number, and drop it off at any FedEx location. It’s that simple!

Customer agrees to pay such charges whether the equipment is lost, stolen or destroyed. Customers who provided a credit card or bank account for collateral will have all charges associated to the unreturned equipment applied to the designated account.

All charges will be removed from the associated account upon satisfactory return of RCN’s equipment. Customers, who elected to pay a rebatable collateral equipment fee, will receive their rebate upon satisfactory return of all equipment on the customer account within 30 days of disconnection.

* Please note: Remotes and/or damaged equipment may be charged to your account. Additional services provided by FedEx such as charges for boxes, packing and home pickup, are the responsibility of the customer. Your account may be charged for equipment that is not returned to RCN. The charge may vary depending upon the make/model. Once the undamaged equipment is received by RCN, the charges to your account, if billed, will be reversed.

I love the affordable and reliable internet service that RCN provides. Thank you!
