What is number porting?

Porting is the process of transferring a phone number from one telephone service provider to another. 

Number porting lets you retain the same number while switching service providers. You won't experience service disruptions, and companies can retain their contacts from existing numbers. Phone number porting must be requested by the owner of the phone number.

Porting 100 phone numbers or fewer is a normal porting request. Porting more than 100 numbers is considered a project porting request. Project porting requests require that the numbers to be ported belong to the same account of the same carrier.  

We offer number portability for most of the carriers in Australia, Canada, and the United States. You can also port VoIP numbers, including Google Voice and Skype numbers, into Plivo.

Number porting is supported only within the boundaries of each country. For example, you cannot port a number originally serviced by a service provider from the United States to one in the United Kingdom.
