FastPort now available for Canadian ports

6, Nov 2023

We are excited to announce the expansion of FastPort, our on-demand activation service that ports all your phone numbers in just a few clicks, to now include local Canadian ports. This enhancement aligns with our commitment to providing flexible and efficient solutions for managing telephone number (TN) porting.

What’s new

On-demand activation for Canadian ports. Here’s how it works:

  • Activation window: Canadian FastPort users can activate their local port orders on-demand within a 7-hour window, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM Central Time (CT) on the Firm Order Commitment (FOC) date.
  • Automatic activation: If the activation is not triggered manually by the end of this window, the order will be automatically activated.
  • User awareness: It’s crucial for users to note that this activation window is different from the U.S. on-demand ports, which have a 14-hour window (6:00 AM - 8:00 PM CT).

Enhanced user and operational flexibility

Telnyx expanding FastPort’s offerings for Canadian ports benefits both users and porting operations teams. Opting for on-demand activation allows more control over the cutover timing of Canadian local port orders to Telnyx.

Why This Change?

This change is implemented to provide additional flexibility in activating port orders and to improve the overall efficiency of activating port orders.
