How Do I LNP Away From Intermedia

You should do the following with your new Service Provider:

    1. Contact your new provider to order porting of numbers to them
    2. Fill in their new Service Provider's Letter of Authorization (LOA) Form
    3. Check in with them regarding status of their porting order

Your new Service Provider will do the following:

  1. Enter the customer's porting order in their systems upon receipt of the LOA
  2. Check the customer's information including determining whom is the carrier of record for numbers (this would not be Intermedia but the carrier Intermedia uses)
  3. Request Customer Service Record where appropriate, from the carrier of record ( from the carrier Intermedia uses)
  4. Submit a porting order called a Local Service Request (LSR) to the carrier Intermedia uses
    Note: most carriers use automated local number porting systems to exchange information and process orders; they do not support phone or email order requests
  5. Inform the customer of status including requested and confirmed port dates

Intermedia role:

  1. Intermedia is not involved with the local port out process.
  2. This is because Intermedia is not the “carrier of record” for local numbers; Intermedia is a reseller for local numbers. Intermedia uses major nation-wide local carriers as the “carrier of record” for local number administration.
  3. Because Intermedia is not the local carrier of record, we do not have access to status information regarding the customer’s port out order.
  4. There are regulatory reasons for this. Only the your new Service Provider can tell you current status of your port out order.
  5. Once the LNP away is final, the customer has the responsibility of notifying Intermedia to cancel services.
