Provider not on the list?

We can also offer third party porting via BT IP Exchange. Whilst this gives us access to a greater number of communications providers, it does not guarantee a number can be ported.

Does the communications provider host numbers on BT IP Exchange? Please note that due to technical limitations within BT's platform, non-geographic numbers (starting 03, 05, 08) hosted on BT IP Exchange cannot be ported
