    What is a 'Tag on the line', and how do I remove one?

    A 'Tag on the line' prevents you from placing a Broadband order. It's caused by various reasons including an incompatible product existing on the line or a data integrity issue.

    A cease order is placed against my end user's service that I didn't raise. Why?

    A cease order may be entered against your End User's service for a number of reasons. You will see this if they are migrating to a new provider via the Notice of Transfer process. Or they may be cancelling their telephony service.

    For more details, contact your End User.
