Ottawa, Canada, March 28, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- AstraQom, a leading provider of success building telecomunications services for organizations and individuals local and international, today announces a new opportunity to port South Africa phone numbers for the first time. Anyone who owns a South Africa phone number and who moves out of South Africa or from one location in South Africa to another whether permanently or temporarily, typically experience time-consuming, revenue-draining hassle. AstraQom's announcement will prevent both and will enhance even the successful migration from expensive, traditional telephone service to feature-rich, cost-saving voice over Internet services.
"Moving from a current South Africa telecommunications provider to AstraQom and being able to bring the South Africa phone number is a life-saver," stated Suzanne Bowen, vice president of marketing. "Business people and other individuals who travel often throughout South Africa and abroad and South Africa families whose children enroll in 4 - 10 years or more of college abroad are just two examples of those who deeply benefit from being able to port their South Africa phone numbers over to a different phone service that meets their needs better. Besides people see their phone number as one of their most important pieces of identity and actually something that they own. We understand our customers."
There are some important stipulations that must be met in order to comply with South Africa regulations. All current suspension issues, if applicable, must be cleared first with the original network provider being ported from. The length of time for a S. A. phone number porting process to complete is 8 - 20 working days (Monday - Friday), much better than previously, in which NP was not available at all. Each South Africa phone number to be ported into AstraQom telephone service needs to include a local address that is in South Africa. Customers will need to also provide a copy of the completed AstraQom Letter of Authorization form and a copy of the most recent invoice of their current provider with the account number and phone number included.
Jonathan Sowah, CEO of AstraQom, further adds, "Our company's telecommunications solutions do bring new opportunities to South African phone number owners who port in. Choices and features that can be included are, for example, mobile voice over Internet, business phone system (PBX), the best in phones from Aastra and snom, global phone numbers, fax to email, automated attendant, phone conferencing and visual voicemail. Dial-by-name is one of our newest empowering features. We are working with different international carriers to make more countries' phone numbers portable into AstraQom service for the benefit of clients."
He continues, "Canada, which is AstraQom's headquarters, is the 6th largest investor in South Africa. There are many South Africans in Canada and around the world. They have a need to port South African phone numbers to telecommunications service providers who can best meet their needs. Many are mobile professionals and multi-national companies who cannot afford to have the success of their business stalled because of not being able to port their phone numbers where they want."
According to Wikipedia sources, phone number portability was first introduced "as a tool to promote competition ... allowing vendors to compete fairly in price and service." Customers who port their South Africa phone numbers into AstraQom service will first be activated on their new AstraQom Network Provider network before being deactivated from their old network provider. AstraQom aims to make the process convenient and rewarding.
