You will be required to pay a deposit if you are a new customer. Your monthly line rental charge is due monthly in advance. Charges for the first month of connection will be calculated pro rata according to the number of days the service was provided. For example if your service was connected on the 24 May, you will be charged 6 days' rental for May. This pro rata charge, along with your first whole month's charge will appear on your first bill.
How can I terminate my telephone service?
We require one month's notice prior to the termination of your telephone service. Failure to do so may result in your recovery date not being met. If you wish to terminate your telephone service please fill in a termination request form by clicking here.
Please note that telephone bills should be paid before you leave the islands and require 2 working days to prepare. Terminations can only take place during the working week; 8am until 12noon and 1pm until 4.30pm. Your final month's rental charge will be pro rata according to the number of days you received the service.
