Currently I have landline and broadband with Spark.  I am thinking about porting the landline number to 2talk.

What will happen after I ported my number to 2talk?  Will I:

(i) get a new landline number for my Spark landline, or
(ii) lose my landline and broadband (VDSL) connection?

Will Spark charge me some fee if/when they give me a new landline number?

Thanks!

When you port a number to another provider any services tied to that number with the current provider will be disconnected so (ii) will happen.
If you want to keep your broadband with spark you would first need to switch to a naked broadband plan and get them to switch your number to a voip line. Once that's done you could then port the number to 2talk without losing your broadband connection.
