We're moving house today - transferring a Spark connection. They have advised that they can't connect us because they are waiting for Vodafone to clear the line.


Does anyone know when this happens? There is no cell coverage at the new property so we were really hoping the connection would proceed today.

They have to wait for the previous owners to disconnect.

Possibly a cancel order from the previous people there? If that is the case I'm not sure a lot can be done other than wait it out. Did they give you a specific date?

Pretty sure that means there is an existing service order or existing active internet connection.


Contact old owner to get them to call vodafone to cancel / remove any open orders. Struck this when moving from spark to 2degrees. Spark added a cancel order that blocked 2degrees.


They just had to remove to clear the way.

Current owners reckon they told Vodafone weeks ago (they must be aware because they have sent a new modem to their new property to get them re-connected - they are staying with Vodafone). Spark say there's nothing they can do until Vodafone release the line...
