It is advisable to give as much notice as possible, but you will need to give at least three weeks notice for everything to be arranged or five weeks if you want Broadband at your new site.
To order telephone lines you can contact eircom's Business Service Centre on 1800 601 701
This depends on the type of line and number of lines you require. Here is a list of standard lead-times. Please note all lead times are dependent on a site survey:
PSTN -10-15 working days; ISDN (Bra) - 10-15 working days; ISDN (Pra/Fra) - 6-8 weeks; Private Circuits - 6-8 weeks; eircom Telephone Systems -10-15 working days.
* Please note it takes 10-15 working days to get Broadband installed in addition to the lead times above.
Broadband can only be installed on an existing telephone line. Therefore, we will only be in a position to test a line for Broadband suitability after it has been installed in your new premises. This means that from the time your telephone line is installed and it qualifies for Broadband, it can take up to 10 - 15 working days to have active Broadband.
Yes, you must advise at time of placing an order for your move that you wish to keep your Broadband until you have moved into your new premises.
If you are moving within an area that is covered by your current telephone exchange, then you should be able to keep your telephone number. In the event that you are moving outside your current telephone exchange, eircom can arrange to have calls to your old telephone number forwarded to your new premises. Alternatively, we can organise to set up an extended absence greeting which allows you to set up a message on your old telephone number advising of your move and new telephone numbers.
Telephone numbers will not be guaranteed until the day of the move and the telephone lines have been installed and tested.
