We're moving into a new house this Friday. I'm keen to get the Fusion plan in the new place, but upon calling WxC was told that I had to wait until we were in the new house before I could sign up, and from then it would be a 6-10 day wait without broadband (or phone).
Now as I'm sure most of you can appreciate that it took a lot of bargaining with the wife to be allowed to ditch the traditional phone in place of a VoIP system! Finally I got the approval, and it's fallen over at the first hurdle... There is no way she'll put up with 6-10 days without a phone (when Telecom would have it connected the day of the move).
I've been thinking of ways around it... how long does the number port take? We're wanting to port the number at our current house before we move, and then take that with us (which obviously won't work if we wait until we're in the new house).
* Could we port the number now, divert it to one of our cell phones until all the changes take effect?
* Will I lose my existing DSL connection (I've heard all services go south when the number's ported)?
Any further suggestions, please reply!
