UK Bank Holiday August

Due to public holidays in the UK, the Packnet office will be closed during normal business hours on Monday 28th August.


We are also using this opportunity to remind customers to send in their dial plan requirements for the bank holiday weekend before 15:00 25th August.

Read on for answers to commonly asked questions.

Can I do this myself?

  1. Log in to your Metis account
  2. Click Incoming Calls from the navigation menu
  3. Click the Time of Day Routing tab
  4. Click Modify Routing Rule next to your number

Remember to change it back when you get back into the office on Tuesday 29th August.

That’s all from us. Enjoy your weekend.
