Telephones and Mobile Phones in London
Just as soon as you have signed the lease on your new London apartment you’ll want to get connected to the outside world. It will be beneficial to have a landline installed as soon as possible. Existing via mobile phone is fine, but when you are moving to a new country and trying to establish credit, open bank accounts and register for a doctor it is useful to have a landline number registered in your name.
Getting a land line is pretty simple. There are many different landline service providers, but you’ll have to get the actual line installed by British Telecom (BT) to be able to activate your service. You can sign up for the minimum amount of time and then swop to your preferred service provider. If you find a service provider that offers a great deal on international calling from a landline then ask if they can buy the line from BT and charge you accordingly.
Having a landline installed is one of the fastest ways of establishing credit in the UK. It is one of the easiest contracts that you can get and it establishes your bona finds if you’re trying to open an account at a store or get a loan.
To get a contract for a mobile phone is more difficult. Until you get settled you can easily use the Pay-as-you-go system on your existing phone. If your phone does not work in the UK, then you can purchase a cheap phone for very little at stores and markets across the city.
Getting connected is one of the first ways of establishing yourself in any new country. Your relocation does not mean that you have to lose contact with the folks back home for a second.
