Frequently Asked Questions
What is National Number Portability, and why does it matter?
Currently, small wireless, wireline and VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) number porting is limited. Local numbers are generally restricted to the LATA that they currently reside in, and the coverage footprint of your current carrier. With current proposed regulatory and technological changes by the FCC, complete National Number Portability would be made available between all service providers, regardless of size or type and geographic service location. Having the ability to own and control numbering resources is a benefit for carriers, operators, and service providers so they can better serve their customers while improving the responsiveness of their service.
Additionally, the change would allow for small and regional carriers to compete with nationwide carriers, providing for more competition and a better economic landscape for consumers and businesses alike. The FCC is currently reviewing proposals for solving the National Number Portability issue, but won't be seen by consumers for at least another few years.
