— VOIp FAQs
What about my existing telephone line and number?
You can keep your existing Telkom landline number. Simply let us know that you would like to port your number and we will give you a ring to talk you through the process.
How long does the Telkom line transfer take?
It’s up to Telkom, but usually around 2 weeks.
How do the billing and tariffs work?
We will bill you at month-end, just like Telkom used to do. It will just be a lot cheaper!
Do I need to have a particular line speed?
We recommend at least a 10Mbps line if you would like a seamless VOIP experience.
Can I use my own telephone?
No. You will need a VOIP phone. Luckily we supply two different VOIP phones – so take a look at our VOIP page and choose what works for you.
