ISP Embargo Period

Published on November 25, 2015 in ITnews

Friday 11th December 2015 to Monday 11th January 2016

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 Embargo Period for December 2015 / January 2016.


  • 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

Carriers & Datacentres imposing Embargo Periods

NOVA deals with a wide range of carriers.  The following have advised us of an embargo period which falls inline with or within our Embargo Period;

For any orders submitted during this Embargo Period we will make every effort to progress both new and existing orders during this time that do not require external input or third party services.
