Porting phone numbers from POTS to VoiP downtime?
Posted on 2013-05-21
I'm going to a VoiP system when I move offices. I'm currently using land lines for 3 numbers from 2 different providers. I'm moving to a new office that has no phone system installed so I figured I wouldn't bother paying the couple grand to install a POTS/PBX setup and just go straight to VoiP (hardware is ready to go). I've tried to research online but can't really find an answer as if it's possible to request a "switch" date, or am I basically at the mercy of the old providers on when they feel like getting around to porting the number? I'd love for all of them to be ported all on the day of my move so my newly set up VoiP phones will get my calls. Is this possible?
