ISP Embargo Period for December 2019 / January 2020

We are fast approaching that time of year again where much of the Telecommunications Industry operates an (ISP Embargo Period) with reduced staff and an imposed embargo period on many aspects of network construction, orders and other activity.

This notification outlines the ISP Embargo Period for December 2019 / January 2020.


  • Most customer installations and network construction activity
  • Works by other carriers within ‘their’ embargo periods
  • Network Moves / Add / Changes (MAC Requests)

Not Restricted

  • Fault rectification
  • Capacity changes that can be done with remote configuration which does not require a third party carrier
  • Provision of services where the work required does not conflict with the embargo
