What is Local Number Portability or LNP?

Local number portability, referred to as LNP, allows you to keep your existing phone number when switching carriers.

This service makes it easier than ever before to make sure you always have the best local phone deal you can get!

The requirements imposed on carriers for this service have resulted in an additional charge that you will see on your monthly bill. This charge is assessed whether you take advantage of LNP or not.

If you want to keep your current number, be sure to tell your carrier when you sign up. Otherwise, you will be assigned a new number.
