Ethernet transfer of service

27 Nov 2021

Ethernet transfer of service is a way for you to change ownership of point-to-point Ethernet services circuits. It allows you to transfer some of the product assets and customers to a new legal entity.

We’ll give you essential support during restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, or company sales. It means we can make the right changes on our systems at the right time. 


• If your business is changing, we’ll support you as you expand, merge or restructure.

• You won’t have any issues with old and new entities existing on our system at the same time.

• Our team will guide you through the transfer to make sure it goes smoothly.


The Service Products portfolio consists of a range of products and services that are applicable across WLR, LLU, Ethernet and NGA. The portfolio includes Common Portfolio Products, Number Portability, Events and Exhibitions Day Rate Charges, Novation Charges, Project Services and Engineering services.
