Your Guide to Moving with Windstream Internet
Whether you’re moving to the other side of town or across the country, relocating your internet, phone, and TV services can feel like an added hassle. Now that nearly a quarter of Americans work remotely, it’s vital to have dependable tech with a quick set-up time once you step foot into your new home or office.
From moving to your first solo spot to relocating an entire office building of employees, Windstream has the moving tips to get you back online and taking calls in no time.
How to Transfer Windstream Services to a New Home Address
Before moving day, you’ll want to complete the following tasks:
- Verify your internet provider is available at your new address. If your same provider is unavailable, research local internet providers and ask for new client promotions.
- Check your plan’s contract terms. If your move is short-term, a provider like Windstream with no annual contract required is as flexible as you need.
- Schedule internet activation at your new location before your moving day, so you’ll be internet-ready upon arrival.
- Use labeled boxes to pack up equipment, including any routers, modems, phones, and cords for easy access.
- Verify that your online security features are up-to-date, such as virus protection and password management tools.
After the technician completes your set up, be sure to check that your phone line can make calls, your TV comes through clearly, and your internet speed is sufficient for your daily tasks, so any issues can be addressed.
If you use the same internet provider, you can likely use the same router, modem, and cords for your new location. That said, it’s always wise to double-check with your provider that your tech is still suitable for your plan and location.
