The boxes are packed. The moving truck is in the street, but you are still waiting for dial tone at the new office. Yes, that really happens.

Maybe you waited to order phone service because you didn’t want to pay for an extra week of phone lines, or you experienced a quick turnaround from the phone company during a move a few years back. Those days may be over.

Unexpected delays in provisioning from the local phone company are the new reality. Today it is critically important to start coordinating your new services 2 to 3 months ahead.

Chesapeake tackles the hassle and will coordinate everything for you. We work with the phone companies, carriers, and ISPs that deliver the best features, the highest quality of service, and the most responsive customer support. Essentials that can be overlooked when you’re not working with service providers every day.
