I'm looking for some advice about the process of moving my landline number to voip (sipgate). I am out of contract with talktalk and plan on moving to BT FTTP, but don't want to have the landline tied to their digital voice service as then you can't use your own router.
My talktalk contract requires 30 days notice and I know when I ask sipgate to port the number theyll also cancel the broadband (which is fine because BT are coming to install a new line). My question is all about the timing of the process. If I order with BT and send of the porting request, do BT need to install the FTTP after the port has completed as I'm not sure if they'll remove the copper cable? Or can it be the same day etc?
Any guidance is very much appreciated.
