- New activations are carried out in four stages:
Stage 1 – The customer needs to fill in the application form which can be obtained from the Clear website or by calling us. You have already completed this step.
Stage 2 – After your application form is received by Clear broadband, it will be loaded into our provisioning system and an account will be created. This will not become live until activation of your service.
Stage 3 – Generally your service will be activated within 1 to 3 business days of Clear receiving your completed application form.
Please Note: If you have requested that your existing telephone number be transferred to your ClearTalk VoIP service a further delay of between 5 and 10 working days may be expected. This is dependent on the speed of processing by your previous telephone service provider.
Stage 4 – A router, if ordered, will be configured by Clear and shipped to you usually within the next 5 business days.
Please note from time to time delays will occur for various reasons. We do not guarantee timeframes for activation and cannot be held liable for delays.
- Where do I want the equipment to go?
- Connection Ports will already be in place in one or various rooms within your apartment. Internally these are wired back to a communications cabinet within the apartment.
The main connection point will be labelled as D1. At the D1 point your connection configuration will be dependent on the type of service you have ordered.
You can connect via a cable directly from your D1 port to a computer or into the WAN (Ethernet) port of a wireless router, for transmission within your apartment.
