Moving Premises? Want to Keep your Old Telephone or Fax Number?

Number Porting

  • Perfect for keeping your old number when you move premises (even outside your local area)
  • Save Money - pay as little as £4 per month. (BT charge over £100 per quarter for a simple call diversion from one exchange to another)
  • You can also save money when you move from a dedicated fixed fax line to our FAX to EMAIL service.
  • Switch Phone Providers to us (and you can keep your old number, EVEN IF YOU ARE MOVING ABROAD)
  • Porting is available for BT, Energis, Virgin Media (Telewest/NTL/Eurobell) and many VoIP numbers.
  • You  can now port all BT and Virgin Media geographic area code telephone numbers. Non-geographic numbers beginning with 08 (e.g 0800, 0870, 0845) supplied by BT or Energis can also be ported. We regret that we cannot port Virgin Media non-geographic numbers beginning with 08.
  • We are also able to port numbers from some existing VoIP providers such as Sipgate and Vonage (providing you have their agreement to do so).
  • We will be able to Port Skype Numbers later this year - (We think)

    We can port fixed line and VoIP numbers from companies we have porting agreements with. Portable numbers should be live and have an active service with the current provider. If you are unsure whether the number is portable please contact the Porting team. We can migrate from the following companies:

    *BT Retail geographic and non-geographic numbers
    *BT Wholesale (e.g. OneBill Telecom) geographic and non-geographic numbers
    * Virgin Media (NTL / Telewest) geographic numbers only
    *Energis non-geographic only
    *Magrathea Telecom Clients (a wide variety of VoIP Companies included)
    *Gamma Telecom Clients (a wide variety of VoIP Companies included)

    Note it is possible to port all BT geographic area code telephone numbers and non-geographic BT numbers beginning with 08 (e.g 0800, 0870, 0845).
