Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why am I being charged from my previous supplier when I moved my services over to Rydal?

    Unfortunately, whilst all telecommunications providers will endeavour to end date your services when they are moved over to a new provider, on the rare occasion this is not done. Please send over a copy of your bill with the service charges detailed from your previous supplier to our Client Support team at and they will be able to detail whether this is correct or not.


  • What is the SLA for billing queries?

    We aim to investigate and resolve billing queries in 5-7 working days.

    Insurance is added by the lease company as a protection for theft and non-user induced damage. This is a requirement for your lease. If documentation of an existing insurance policy is not presented to the funder within 30 days of receiving your kit then insurance will be added automatically. You can remove the charges at any point by supplying your insurance policy directly to the funder.

  • Rydal are replacing my internet and existing router; how will this affect my IT network?

    Rydal will ask for your existing IT company’s details prior to installation to see if there is anything specific set up on your IT Network that we need to be aware of. This could be VPN’s, port forwarding etc. Once identified Rydal can take consideration of your existing network profile. If you do not have an IT Company already, Rydal can support you with this for an additional charge.
