With number porting can I do this when I move house. I have the VFX service, and a telecom number. I am keen to keep the telecom number when I move (same area but different exchange).Would I have to get a new line (with ADSL) set up at the new place. Then port the telecom number to VFX before disconnecting it at the old place. So, I would have a new telecom number and the old telecom number on VFX. Would this work? Thanks Andrew

Just port the number the day you are going to move. You will of course need VFX hardware for the service to be set up on. Once ported, it will collapse your Telecom line and all services on it, i.e. assuming it has your DSL connection, that will be gone too. WorldxChange will ask if DSL is on the number your are about to port. Just say yes, but you have already arranged another broadband connection to replace it (which is correct, it will just be at your new house). Then move, get your new broadband connection, plug in your VFX box.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
