Local Number Portability Business Rules

Peerless Network supports Local Number Portability (LNP), and strives to make the process as simple as possible.
Below are details on our LNP Rules and Order Processes. Please note that occasionally changes to these rules and processes are necessary, and we will make every reasonable effort to give advanced notice of any material change.

Local Service Request (LSR) Process

Peerless Port-Out Portal:
Peerless offers a dedicated Port-Out Portal to handle all Local Service Requests, and now requires all port-out orders to be submitted using this Portal. Requests for access to the Portal can be made at port-out@peerlessnetwork.com.

Note that as of January 1, 2014, Peerless Network no longer accepts LSRs via email.

Response Intervals:
Peerless responds to all LSRs with either a Firm Order Confirmation (FOC) or Reject Notice. For orders received before 1:00 pm central, response timeframes are as follows:

  • Complex Port LSRs – 24 hours of receipt
  • Simple Port LSRS – 4 hours of receipt

Requested Due Date (RDD):
Minimum RDDs:

  • Complex Port Requests – 4 business days from receipt
  • Simple Port Requests – 1 business days from receipt

Expedites will only be granted for out-of-service medical facilities.

Hours of Operation:

  • Monday – Friday: 7:00am – 5:00pm CST

Subscriptions:
