House phone Vattentornet
You find a phone and an ATA-box in the flat. The ATA-box is connected to your Internet socket. The cable between the ATA-box and the Internet socket must not be pulled out. If the cable is pulled out neither your house phone nor broadband will work. For internet connection you use the gate at the ATA-box which is marked “data”. Visitors use the entry phone by pressing the three last figures of your flat number and after that ring/open (“ring/öppna”) on the board. After this you will hear it ring in your home. When your house phone rings, lift the receiver and answer. The door will open when you press * on the phone. The telephone belongs to the flat and should be left for the next tenant. If you lose a telephone you will be charged 400 SEK and if you lose an ATA-box you will be charged 2 500 SEK.
