Local Number Portability
Local Number Portability (LNP) provides a means for customers to change their physical network connection from one carrier to another and retain their existing local telephone number(s).

During the process of porting the number from another supplier's network to VeeTel there may be a period when the service is interrupted. If we have arranged a Port in request on behalf of the customer and this is successfully completed it is the customer’s responsibility to contact the losing provider to cancel their service with them
For NBN Phone delivered via UNI-V, battery back-up will be supplied as an option. The battery back-up will only provide power to the UNI-V ports in case of an on-premise power outage. Depending on usage, the battery back-up can supply power to the UNI-V ports for a couple of hours after a power failure before reaching the 50% power availability level. At this point it will switch off to preserve the remaining power for emergency use only.
The back-up battery is designed only to maintain power to the voice and the data ports on the NBN Connection Box. It will not operate to supply back-up power to your handsets or to your broadband equipment. If chosen as an option, the battery has a warranty period of two years from the date of installation.
