Subscriptions to Services

A residential portal lets subscribers manage subscriptions to additional services that a service provider makes available to subscribers. These services could provide additional bandwidth, access to specified content providers, or other services configured in the SAE.

Using a residential portal simplifies how service providers deliver services and how subscribers gain access to these services. The service provider can make services available to subscribers without directly contacting them, and subscribers can start and stop available services without contacting the service provider. Service providers can also charge for any service that a subscriber uses, based on the type of service and how long the subscriber uses the service. Through a residential portal, the service provider can provide information to subscribers about the cost and use of these services.
