FCC Number Porting Period

Post by wbd0317 » Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:35 am

"“The Porting Period
The FCC has changed its number porting rules to shorten the porting period for “simple” ports from the current four days to one business day. The new deadline applies to all simple ports, including “intermodal” ports such as wireline to wireless, wireless to wireline, wireline or wireless to VoIP, or any other combination. Simple ports generally do not involve more than one line or more complex adjustments to telephone switching equipment. Wireline, wireless, and interconnected Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) providers are required to meet this new, simple port deadline, which will take effect in late summer 2010 for most carriers. Small, rural carriers have a longer period, until the beginning of 2011, to meet the new porting deadline.”

So please explain why it is now 4 weeks to the day and still no port?!?!?!?!?!?!

This is all dependent on the requested port date the winning carrier (Ooma) submits. If Ooma asks for 3 to 4 weeks out, that's what it would be regardless of FCC mandate on how fast a port request must be accommodated.
