Mobile Number Portability has been available between the mobile networks for a few years already and Geographic Number Portability is also available between selected Fixed Line networks. Switch Telecom prides itself in being a market leader and has been one of the first operators to offer this.

We do not offer Internet Connectivity but can advise you on a connectivity solution that best suits your needs. Contact us if you want to find out more.

No, but we would recommend contacting us to discuss which equipment works best.

Both SIP and IAX are supported on the Switchtel Business Trunk Service.

Switch Telecom offer both Pre-Paid (Advance) and Post-Paid (Arrears) payment options.

On Post-Paid billing the invoice is automatically generated and emailed on the 1st of each month in respect of that month’s service fee and the previous month’s calls.
Payment is collected strictly via debit order three working days later.

Subscribers who have elected to pay in advance will need to pay via EFT or by Credit Card on a strictly pre-paid basis. Airtime top-ups purchased using a Credit Card on the Switch Telecom Client Zone are immediate whereas EFT payments are subject to bank clearance delays.

These call charges are largely controlled by the service provider that people who phone you are using. Under normal circumstances they should be similair to standard calling rates.

You can take as many direct dial numbers as you require.  We do however work on a 10 number to 1 channel ratio. For example, if you have a 4 channel trunk, you can have a maximum of 40 direct dial numbers.  If you require more than 40 numbers the channels on your trunk will have to increase accordingly.
