Ditch calls on your landline but keep your number and use VoIP

Porting Landlines to VoIP

Many people see using a copper pair for actual telephony as somewhat antiquated and would like to move the copper pair to us for broadband but move their number to Voice over IP. Normally moving a number to VoIP kills the phone line and broadband, but we can do this without a break in service. This is called renumber and export.

Frequently Asked Questions

Both! The order form will give you the option for this whether you're a new customer ordering for the first time or if we are already providing broadband to you.

  1. You place the order via our order page.
  2. We set up the number on our VoIP system right away, and once you've set up your VoIP phone this will allow you to make outgoing calls via VoIP. (You can still make and receive calls on the phone line at this point)
  3. Once the phone line itself has moved to us (which normally takes 2 weeks) you will no longer be able to make calls on the line, but can do so by VoIP. Incoming calls will come in on the phone line still. At this point any incoming call features you had on the line, like Caller Display will be lost.
  4. Finally, once the number port is complete (can take a further 2 weeks) the incoming calls start to come in via VoIP instead of the phone line. During this time incoming calls are likely to fail until the port is complete.

Simply order your broadband service. As part of the ordering process we will ask if you want a copper pair with your broadband and take details of where you need it.

No. The whole idea behind this is that the broadband is not meant to be affected.

Yes, your landline (copper pair) will be given a new number.

Yes, you will still get calls from the BT Text service reading the text message to you.

Calls to 999/112 will work on the VoIP service but not on the Copper Pair.

The copper pair itself is installed by Openreach just like a BT phone line, on our behalf. No telephone service is provided on this copper pair, it is purely for broadband use.

Whilst there is no telephone service as such, the pair does have some audio when connected to a telephone - this is purely to stop any engineers thinking the pair is unused and taking it for another installation or fault repair. It also allows a quiet line test so one can hear crackles or interference that may be the cause of a fault. As such we still expect customers to have a telephone handset available for fault repair and diagnostics.

We do not normally allow any calls. However, for customers where we have allowed calls on a line they are charged at whatever Openreach charge us plus 20%
