No, your credit will not be impacted by the credit check run to start service. When creating a new person record for residential accounts, we do run a credit screen. Connect Check subscriber services is a software program provided by Experian. Running Connect Check will result in a soft inquiry on your credit report. The type of inquiry is known as a SOFT HIT and is only visible to the consumer not to other credit grantors. Soft inquiries are not an indicator of greater risk which is why they do not impact your credit scores.
