Cheap Line Rental For Broadband FAQ

Freeola's Cheap Line Rental Contract Length

Line Rental for Broadband has no contract. Should you wish to cease the service you simply need to provide us with at least 30 days notice.

Please note: Ceasing your line rental service will result in all other services that rely on the line, such as broadband, also being terminated. You will be liable for any other cease charges for the broadband service, or any other services on the line, and may have to pay early termination charges if those services are still in contract. Our broadband cease charges can be viewed on our pricelist page. If you have a broadband service on the line that is not with Freeola then please contact your broadband provider for details on any possible cease charges.

If you wish to move your line rental service to another provider, you can do so by simply contacting your new provider. They will manage the transfer of the line.

About Line Rental Transfer

BT lines: If you already have a BT-based line we can simply transfer your line over to the Broadband-only Line Rental service and your telephone number will remain the same. There is normally no interruption to other services on your line, such as broadband.

There is a small one-off fee to pay of £11.99 (inc. VAT) for a BT-base line transfer.

LLU Lines: If you currently pay your line rental to a provider such as TalkTalk, Sky or Vodafone (known as Local Loop Unbundling, or LLU, services) then your line will need converting to a BT line so that it can be transferred to us. In most cases we are able to port the telephone number to us. If this is not possible a new telephone number will be assigned to the line.

Transferring a line from a LLU provider to Freeola Broadband-only Line Rental will normally result in interruption to your service of up to 2 hours.

There is a one-off fee to pay of £39.59 (inc. VAT) to transfer an LLU line to Freeola.

Details of line transfer charges can be found on our pricelist page.

How long does it take to transfer a line?

Line transfers from other BT-base line rental providers normally take 10 working days (due to Ofcom regulations). Transfers from service providers such as TalkTalk, Sky or Vodafone (known as Local Loop Unbundling or LLU services) can take longer. You will be notified by us of the date your line is expected to be transferred.

About Line Rental Installation

If you don't already have a line at your premises, we can arrange for BT to install a new line for a one off cost of £54.00 (inc VAT).

If there is an inactive line (often referred to as a stopped line) at the premises then this will be reactivated for a one off cost of £11.99 (inc VAT).

For new line installations an engineer will need to visit the premises. We will contact you to arrange an appointment. Should the engineer be unable to gain access to the premises at the agreed appointment time an abortive visit will be charged by BT, which will passed on to the customer. This charge is £113.69 (inc VAT).

Details of line installation charges can be found on our pricelist page.

How long does it take to get a line installed?

This depends on the availability of BT Openreach engineers, but is normally between 3 and 10 working days. We will contact you after you have placed your order to confirm an engineer appointment with you.
