I'm looking at porting my old, old home landline number to Sipgate Basic account ahead of FTTP/FTTH rollout
in my area. I've all the Sipgate forms filled in, and am a little confused by a couple of things.
The mail from Sipgate, sending me the forms, mentions that "The port will terminate the phone line and
associated services like broadband. ", which is exactly what I don't want to happen.
I'm sure there are many who have done this in the past and more who'll want to with FTTH seperating out
BB from landline services. I'm also sure next to non of these will want to lose their BB.
I have just spoken to my current broadband provider (Vodafone), who have provided the CUPID code and
suggest assigning a random new number, before the port, so the port can pick my old landline number out
of the "pool". This all sounded very sensible, but at odds with the Sipgate process.
As anyone any suggestions or point out any caveats in this process? Many thanks in advance...
