2.cancel broadband from current provider
3. start sipgate account or net telco
4.port number from current provider to sipgate or net telco
5.buy adaptor Cisco SPA112 or OBi100
have I missed anything ??
If you have any issues with your Virgin Media broadband you will be able to cancel it and in turn cancel your cancellation request with your existing provider.
If all is OK, request to port your number with whatever VoIP provider you decide to use, once the port is complete your old PSTN line will be disconnected and a final bill will be generated by your old provider.
The PAP2T is an obsolite model and was replaced by the SPA112. I would recomnend you buy this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006 ... tag=uvf-21
