Frequently Asked Questions about Porting
What does porting a number mean?
Number porting is the process by which telephone numbers are transferred between operators. If you already have a telephone number with another provider, but you would like us to maintain and provide services for that number then you must port it to us.
It is too difficult to contact my current supplier. What should I do now?
Do not worry – the only thing you need to do to port your numbers is give us your consent by completing an industry standard porting request form, we will then liaise with your current supplier on your behalf.
Will there be a disruption in service?
No. Number porting is a seamless and straightforward process. The only thing you will notice is a reduction in your phone bills. Your customers will not be aware of any change.
Will it cost me to change supplier?
There are no additional charges involved in transferring your number to Windsor Telecom and you will save money with our service.
How do I port bulk numbers or a block of numbers?
Numbers ports are managed in blocks of 100, so if you have say 500 numbers to port, you can put them all onto a single request form (you may need to use a continuation sheet), but it will take a little longer than normal to facilitate.
Can porting be reversed?
You can cancel a port up to 24 hours before the porting date. This will incur an administration charge of £50. To reverse a port after it has been completed, a fresh request will need to be placed and the process will start again.
Can I port my other non-geographic numbers to Windsor Telecom?
Yes we have porting arrangements with many telecoms providers including BT and Cable & Wireless. For more information please visit our Porting page.
