Keep your phone numbers with our simple service
With the Number Portability service, you no longer pay a fee to your old Operator and you keep your phone numbers.
Thanks to our Dual Operator solution, which includes the installation of duplicate equipment at the customer’s premises, your telephone lines can be transferred to Welcome Italia without any interruption to your services.
Welcome Italia has developed a special installation method that ensures your Voice service continues to operate, even during the various stages of transferring the telephone lines from your old Operator to Welcome Italia.
This method involves duplicating the necessary resources (equipment, ports, etc.), thus avoiding the need for a technician to be present on the day when the lines are transferred from the old Operator.
Do you need a new phone number or do you want to change your current one?
