Q. How did you get my details?
Home Telecom works with more than half the UK’s letting and estate agents to provide tailor made packages, without the hassle. Whether your moving in or out, renting or buying our dedicated team are here to help. Usually at the state of exchanging contracts (sometimes earlier depending on the agent) when you provide your details to the agent, you authorised them to pass your details onto us so we can take some of the stress out of the moving process. We go to great lengths to protect the information we hold and restrict that information to what is required to supply you with a telephone line and Broadband.
