Repair Requests

Many organizations on campus have a staff member in their business office who coordinates phone requests. You may want to ask this person to report your line problem(s).Working with a designated staff member is particularly helpful when more than one phone line in an area is without service.

Telephone Support Providers

Just as most schools and centers have Local Support Providers, or LSPs, to address computing questions and problems, departments with PennNet Phone also have Telephone Support Providers, or TSPs, to address questions and problems regarding PennNet Phone Service. For some departments, your LSP will also be your TSP; in others, you TSP may be another staff member, or even your BA. If you are not sure who your department's TSP is, contact your BA for more information.
