What you need to do to prepare for your Ignite Professional Installation

Once your MyRogers account is set up, run through these steps to make sure you’re ready for your installation:

  • Confirm that someone over the age of majority will be home for the installation and can access your MyRogers account during the setup process.
  • Permission from the homeowner may be required to complete work. For example, drilling, running new cables, placing temporary lines, etc).
    • If the homeowner will not be present during the appointment, you can also find the Letter of Permission here for the homeowner to sign and have ready for the technician.
  • Be aware that you'll need to answer a short set of health questions before the technician can safely enter your home. Based on the answers provided, and any other factors considered applicable by the technician, the installation process may be adapted or the appointment may be rescheduled. You can also choose to reschedule the appointment if you have any concerns with proceeding.
  • Identify which phone wall jacks you want activated and ensure they all outlets, coax cables & phone wall jacks needing activation are visible and easy to access for the technician.

COVID-19 health and safety protocols

When a technician needs to enter the home for an installation, it will be at their discretion with everyone’s safety as the main concern. To help ensure this, before entering the technician will ask a series of COVID-19 related screening questions. Should they not be able to enter at this time, they’ll discuss alternative solutions with you.

While inside, the technician will be wearing a protective mask and face or eye protection. Our technicians are also equipped with safety kits that also include protective gloves, hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes as part of our enhanced sanitation measures.

During the appointment in your home, it’s suggested but not mandatory that our customers wear a face covering for their own safety and comfort. If you are going to be in the same room as the technician, please maintain a distance of at least 2 metres.
