Porting on powertel

Post by the_aph » Fri Aug 14, 2009 12:14 pm

I have a client currently using iiNet on the TNBY (Thornbury VIC) exchange. This exchange is currently capped (no more ports). They have their phone service with Telstra.

If they apply for an Exetel PTL B plan, will this effectively be a rapid transfer?
Will they keep their current Powertel port or will they be disconnected and reconnect (potentially loosing their ADSL2 port)?

it is difficult to say, having been in the industry for a while there is a chance that they could drop the port and then be rejected. But 9 times out of 10 the port remains untouched and it is just a programming change on the line.
