Do my phone numbers change when I switch to Eastlink?
No, they do not. We use a process called Local Number Portability (LNP) that allows us to port your existing number over to our service without the need to change them.
Will my directory listings change?
Only if you request a change, otherwise it will appear exactly as it did before.
Who will provide service if I have a problem?
Eastlink’s own staff of highly-trained technicians will service all of your needs.
Do I have to invest in additional equipment?
No, additional equipment is not needed to receive Eastlink Telephone service. We use your existing wiring and, in most cases, your existing telephone sets can be used.
Does Eastlink simply resell services from another phone company or is it a truly separate system?
No. Eastlink is a facilities-based company providing our services through our own state-of-the-art digital network.
