Depending on various factors such as location, data rate, required response time for outages, and others, the quarterly charge can vary significantly per site. However, there is an economy of scale with larger networks to decrease the average station cost.

This is done to conduct preventative maintenance and/or vegetation removal and to maintain contact with the equipment hosts if applicable.
