My only question i have now and forgive me if it has been asked but i cant recall it being answered yet.
Im am on a plan using the powertel exchange so if i change over to one of the new optus naked pstn plans will i have any downtime in the changeover and if so how long?
- Yes there will be donwtime, essentially its up to 4-5 days to remove the AAPT/Powertel codes and then a further 10-14 days to transfer the service. Of course, qualification will be done first to determine whetehr you are eligible.
Do I get to choose a new landline number then? If yes, how and when do I do this?
- This is randomly generated. It can not be chosen.
Oh...ok. So porting of a VoIP number to the new PSTN is that like forwarding the VoIP incoming call? So there will be a VoIP call charge?
As mentioned there is no forwarding of the kind you mention, the number is changed onto different networks. Quite simply the VOIP number will route onto Optus equipment via the PSTN network.
Were you able to confirm the relocation charge for Optus service customers?
An early update would be highly appriciated.
- I should get this in the next couple of days.
Has this already been published? Sorry for asking if it has.(In regards to AUP for phone calls)
- suppliers should get back to me today or tomorrow onto which it will then be put up.
2) Also if OCV200 is a PSTN line then at the moment i use a billion voip router. The current 'naked' line connects to the router and then my internal phone lines conncet into the back of the router to enable voip calls and the telephones to work. If i change to OCV200 does that mean i need to make different connections for my phones and also fit filters?
- It means that the phones you have can now be connected onto additional sockets in the house/residence if you do indeed have them as the telephone service will be routed onto copper now from Optus. Of course you can play it both ways if you have a VOIP number and PSTN as well. All depends whether a new PSTN is given, of if you port your current VOIP back to PSTN and then decide to order a separate VOIP.
