Home Lines offers a standard connection to Spark’s reputable Public Switched Telecom Network (PSTN). It is designed for residential end-users so they can make and receive telephone calls, send and receive faxes and link to the internet.
Additional services such as voicemail, caller display and call waiting can be added to provide your customers with effective call management.
It is easy to set up a new installation as well as re-assign an existing line from another provider.
And as the service is basic it allows you to package it with your other services such as internet access, toll calls and international calls.

How it works
While we manage the pricing and contractual arrangements for your service, Chorus will manage the provisioning, billing and any fault resolution required.
You pay a monthly rental charge for a standard home line as well as any call usage. It includes unlimited local calls at no charge.
New connections incur a connection fee and installation charges apply to work carried out on an end-user (your customers) site.
Chorus provides the copper network for any new home line and this is included in the price. Alternatively, if you have a Unbundled Bitstream Access (UBA) service with Chorus, the cost of the copper line will be added ‘on top’ and billed to you separately.
Package and sell Home Lines with your other services such as internet access, toll calls or international calling.
