A VoIP phone is entirely dependent on your internet connection.
If you decide to use a VoIP provider for your telephone:
- Wait until your SWS Broadband connection is installed and working before ordering (equipment is usually delivered next day).
- If you have separate providers for telephone and broadband you will need to cancel your broadband independently.
- When your number is transferred to your VoIP service this will close your account and cancel any existing services (including from the same provider broadband).
- The process of transferring your telephone number is handled by your new provider – you don’t need to speak to your existing provider unless you have account/contract queries.
- DO NOT CANCEL EXISTING TELEPHONE SERVICES if you want to transfer your telephone number.
- If you cancel your service independently your number cannot be transferred to a new provider.
- If you have separate providers for telephone and broadband we recommend that you check that all services have ceased when your number transfer is complete.
