TELEPHONE line setup charges

Charges for a fixed phone? France Telecom will always charge a one off fee of €55.00 to activate the line, If the property has had an active phone line within the last 2 years then the line can be activated quite easily, however, if it is more than 2 years since it was last active then a Technician will have to visit the property to activate the line, for this France Telecom will make an additional charge of €69.00.

Where a property does not have a phone line attached to the house France Telecom will send a Technician after this they will then give a quote for a line to be connected. The quote will vary in cost depending on the amount of work required, in some instances it is just a simple cable from a post nearby in other cases it involves digging a trench. It can be very expensive and in these cases other options should be looked at, we can help with this.
