Due to public holidays in the UK, the Packnet office will be closed during normal business hours on Monday 1st May.


We are also using this opportunity to remind customers to send in their dial plan requirements for the bank holiday weekend before 16:00 28th April.

Read on for answers to commonly asked questions.
