How your first bill is calculated

NO long term telephone contracts - Just 30 days rolling
The invoice will show a charge for the whole month in which the invoice is issued and for the whole of the following calendar month. (2 whole months.) This advance payment means you'll have covered your 30 day notice period for cancellation, allowing us to terminate your line for you the same day you notify us should it become necessary.
If you've signed up to our service part way through a month, your first bill will also include a charge from the date the new service went live to the end of the part month.
Please remember to tell the bill payer that the name of our Direct Debit will show on their bank statement as “Go Cardless”.

How the install process works

When placing an order for a new line installation, we tell Openreach the earliest date that you as a customer are happy for the installation to take place. Openreach will then provide us with a committed installation date, which they will allocate based on their availability/resources.
 
We may request Openreach to allocate an install on a specific day or appointment slot (AM/PM), but it is not guaranteed that Openreach will make the booking as requested. We may get an appointment rescheduled at your request, which would incur an additional charge of 15. Appointments can only be changed if at least 24 hours notice has been given.
 
If you require a focused appointment, please let us know prior to making payment for the installation fee, as we cannot change an existing installation request to a focused appointment.

Openreach withdrawal of copper-based voice lines

The UK’s telephone network is changing after a century

Openreach withdrawal of copper-based voice lines
First things first, don’t panic. Everyone will be have to make the move to a VoIP Digital Cloud telephone solution anyway, so this is your chance to get ahead of the game. 
As reported in the National Press and the BBC, Openreach is withdrawing ALL copper-based voice telephone lines from the UK’s network on December 31st 2025, as the Openreach telephone network will reach its end of life.
Openreach has already switched off over 500 exchanges where voice copper lines are no longer available, and this is increasing monthly with a further 1.4 million customers affected in October 2021, and from September 2023 Openreach will issue a national full “Stop Sell” of any new supply of voice copper-based telephone connections, including new line installations, changing of addresses, stopped line restarts and working line takeovers.
Meaning some 47 million (Openreach data 2020) lines will need to migrate to a new internet voice-based service. ALL businesses and residential services ARE affected by this change. After the 31st of December any customers still using copper-based lines for their telephone service, and in some cases existing broadband services, will find their service/s will no longer work. Customers that have not migrated their current telephone service to the new VoIP alternative service by this date will lose voice service, along with their telephone number.
