What is number porting?
Porting is a process that allows you to keep your existing phone number when you move your phone services to us. This means you can make use of our industry leading tariffs without the hassle of changing your number.
When porting your number to us, we’ll take care of all the hard work and make sure your business number remains uninterrupted during the process.
For a limited time only, we’ll port your number to us FREE!

More information on the porting process
Porting Time Frames
Porting takes 2-3 weeks for 01/02 numbers and 4-6 weeks for 03/0800 numbers. Don’t worry, your phone service will remain active during this time and we’ll do all liaising with your current provider during this time.
Porting Costs – FREE for a limited time only
Normally there is a porting charge of £25+VAT for 01/02 numbers and £35+VAT for 03/0800 numbers. This is a one off charge, once your numbers have ported you will be able to make use of our industry leading tariffs with over 10 free features.
What do we need from you?
We’ll need a copy of your last phone bill. A member of our team will be in touch to talk you through the process and answer any questions you may have. You don’t need to contact your current provider; we’ll do all the hard work for you.
What will happen with your old service?
Porting your existing number will cancel/close any services/accounts you have with your current provider (subject to contracts).
