I did check the cost of porting. A bit misleading actually. On their webpage they say:
We charge £15 per number and a maximum of £50 per request where there are more than 5 numbers.
But... the maximum of £50 only applies to certain type of numbers (I forgot the term, but numbers that came in a pack. I guess numbers that are sequential... 05843-556677 / 556678 / 556679 etc). So when you read the above, you would expect that porting cost £15 per number, but if you have 5 or more, than the cost would only be £50, which it isn’t in our case (all the same area code, but not similar numbers).
Not sure if any of you check the background of a company before you sign up for a service. It seems that port5060 is very newly established company. And looking at their financial statements, it doesn’t seems to me that they are doing a lot of turnover + profit (their balance sheet seems not to increase by much over the years).
I would hate to have to swap providers in only a few years....
Whereas voipfone.co.uk, their calling charges are quite high. Have more than £3million on their “cash at bank and in hand” https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/05168033/...
This explains why they charge so much, or.... they have other companies that makes a lot of profit for them.
