    Are there any VoIP supplier out there that will allow a BT landline number
    to be ported over AND provide call diversion to other numbers including

  2. It depends what the BT land line number is (which area code it is).

    if you mail me privately () then I can check. If we
    can port it, then yes, we'll do the diversion.

  5. Perhaps Peter could follow-up and indicate what needs to happen for him
    to add a given exchange? Perceived demand, exchange type, etc.?

  6. IIRC it's a service offered by Magrathea, the reason why it's only local
    to London is that they take the cost of the transit of the call into
    their system from their profit margin. (which would cost more for longer

    Or at least that's how I gathered it was. Apparently more exchanges may
    be added in time (I don't know anything more about this).

    I certainly hope they get here, I've got a BT number I need to park

  7. Magrathea and others.

    What needs to happen is BT need a jolly big kick up the arse, which I
    suppose could come as percieved demand.

  8. Since no-one is collating demand information, I wonder how they can be
    made to perceive it.

    In my experience, you call them and they say 'well, no-one else has
    asked for that feature' - which means that the call centre operator to
    whom you are *currently* speaking has never heard of it and they'll be
    buggered if they are going to pass on your request.

    The impression given above is that "Magrathea and others" can offer you
    GNP in non-London areas, but at a (greater) cost? Is this not correct?

    Is that because BT charges it's Wholesale customers per-hop [or whatever you
    want to call each leg of a call]?
    BT know about the demand out there [they aren't as daft as their front-line
    staff make them out to be]. Ofcom knows. Peter Gradwell knows. You probably
    knew before I wrote this. BT also know how many millions of circuits their
    customers will cease if 100% number portability was as easy as it should

    Basically, yes.
