standalone VOIP,
Who's the cheapest provider and how much do they charge (if any) to port landline number from fibre?
Much thanks.

Number ports will all cost a provider the same price, which is from memory $20 + GST. As this is an industry price everybody pays this, whether they choose to pass it on or make a margin is up to them.

Not sure of the cheapest, but if you are looking for cheap and that is your criteria, don't come to radicall.

Don't think I could if I wanted to. Your site is slow as. According to Pingdom you are slower than 94% of all tested websites. (that is SLOW). http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/#!/blUl2C/http://radicall.co.nz/

Your homepage loads at 51.7 MB. The test showed a load time of about 25 seconds. And just the raw HTML page takes about 5 seconds to load.

BTW: Great sales technique </sarcasm>

lol... Radicall sound like a friendly bunch.

No matter who you are with a port will cost $20. I think the wholesale cost is something like $18 so no one makes any money on it, just simply passes the cost on.

2Talk is cheap. $6.90/month per local number + call costs. 028 numbers are free rental and you just pay for call costs. Up to you to make it work though. 2Talk will not support you in setting up your devices.

They are very friendly at Spark and Vodafone, Slingshot, all racing to the bottom. When was the last time you had a beer with the Spark Call Center representative. : )

Join up to 2talk's $20 plan, use the included free number port, then drop back down to the $10 plan. Number ported for only $10+GST. :)

Good to see where the premium customers have been paying has gone to :) (and it's certainly not to your web hosting company)
