Why has the money been taken when the subscription doesn’t start till possibly July??

This is the payment for the first month. This is paid and the next payment is then due again in August. Of course, only if you are activated in July.

You preorder the first month. Your actual ‘subscription’ and regularly billed payments doesn’t begin until the first month you preordered is used up.

The money is used to pay for the hardware required to actually set you up with the service, so rather than charging a setup fee or anything, it’s just included in with the cost of your first month, but you have to pay it up front.

It also reserves your place in line as far as waiting to be activated. You could alternatively not preorder yet and wait until the activation times are reduced, then preorder when activation is fast….but it would take a lot longer that way, since there’s no end in sight to the pandemic that’s causing the delays. You’d be able to keep your money in your pocket up until your preorder, though.
