Pickup & Return

Your modem comes in a orange reusable box/envelope. Please use the same box for return, pack it and drop to mailbox (fx at the Airport). When dropped in mailbox at the airport the only one handling our modem is The Icelandic Post. When dropped at storefront it goes through many hands and things can get lost as we do not have any return agreement with our pickup location partners.

We urge our customers to return the modem, fully charged to mailbox at the airport so we can prepare the modem for next customer.

Please take care of our orange box!
We try to reuse the orange boxes as often we can. Throwing away a good and healthy box is
