What is a Simple Port?

Simple ports are typically a single number with no advanced features like Line Hunt, ADSL, Fax Duet.  If your number has any of these services we recommend having your current carrier remove the complex service first.

What is a Complex Port?

Complex Ports are for when the number or numbers have advanced features on the line.  Some of the reasons why a number might be classed as a complex port is;

  • Current service uses ISDN technology
  • The number(s) are part of a range e.g. 100 Number Range
  • The service uses advanced features like Fax Duet, Line Hunt or ADSL

If you are unsure and want to seek clarification before porting it is best to email us a copy of your recent phone bill and we can help identify the porting type that would need to be used.
