Customer agrees to reimburse Provider for reasonable attorneys' fees, and any other costs associated with collecting delinquent or dishonored payments. Provider may assess reinstallation charges against Customer in the event the Provider suspends, restricts or terminates the Service(s) as a result of Customer's nonpayment or breach of this agreement.
