Porting agreements in progress

We are currently in the process of establishing porting agreements with more providers. Unfortunately, we are unable to advise on timescales for when these will be completed, however if you are interested in porting from any particular providers, please contact us and we will notify you when this has completed


If your provider isn't on our list

aql® are members of ITSPA and operate a proactive approach to porting and are constantly approaching new operators to arrange mutual porting frameworks, however this is a slow process and we cannot guarantee timescales. If you wish to transfer a number to aql® from a provider not mentioned above, please contact us and we may be able to advise on the current state of the porting agreement.


If you need any more information on the porting process and timescales, please contact us for more information.
