International Phone Number Portability

European-number-porting

Are you having trouble trying to check your VoIP number portability? We had the same problem, so we put together the best international phone number portability guide there is! Our information comes from:

  1. Documentation published online about VoIP number porting from each country's regulatory body.
  2. AVOXI's internal documentation about international number porting from local carriers globally.

We want this to be the best global phone number portability guide there is. So, if you don't see what you're looking for, let us know so we can do a number portability lookup for you in our global database!

In this article we will cover:

In most countries, the process of porting a VoIP phone number includes:

  1. The new service provider notifies the existing service provider of the requested port.
  2. The existing provider is asked to validate the customer's information.
  3. The existing provider confirms the customers' information with the winning service provider. (Note: if the customers' information is not submitted correctly this can delay the process.)
  4. The new provider notifies the regulatory body of the port request.
  5. The regulatory body creates a pending port and sends a notification to the existing service provider.
  6. The new service provider notifies the governing body to activate the port.
  7. The pending port is activated in the national SIP network and instantly broadcast to the telecommunications industry network.

Although the number porting process may appear simple, there are often delays in the process due to incorrect information or individuals and associations placing strict rules on VoIP number portability.

How Long Does it Take to Port a VoIP Number?

The timeline to port a toll free number is base on your existing provider and the type of number you wish to port. Most services recommend that you plan on 15 - 30 business days to port an existing 800 number to a new provider. In our experience, most of our customers have been able port their international VoIP numbers to AVOXI's network in 7-14 days business days.

How Much Does VoIP Number Porting Cost?

  • AVOXI: AVOXI will port your existing toll free numbers at no additional cost.
  • eVoice: eVoice charges a one-time administrative fee of $40 (equivalent local currency) per 800 number.
