Hi all,

We currently have a UK toll-free number with TCL terminating back to a fixed line in NZ, and it's costing an absolute packet.

Does anyone know any other companies that provide a similar service, even if it's SIP/VoIP based. We would need to port the existing number to them.

Thanks in advance,

I have a UK number, but it's not toll free - it's a premium number. But call forwarding to my NZ number is free. Check if it is of interest.

Thanks for that, it looks really good, I can't see anywhere to allow for porting an existing number though - I wonder if because the number belongs to an NZ carrier (from a wholesale point of view anyhow) it'd need to be ported by another NZ carrier?

I use localphone myself for a London number, I have no idea if they do 0800 or porting.

A quick Google search lead me to voiptalk who do 0800 and porting. You can even enter your number into their site and they'll tell you if they can port it.
