How do I complete the project port spreadsheet?


Chase Greiser


At Bandwidth, we offer a project porting service to assist you in moving large quantities of numbers over to the Bandwidth network. For this service users will need to complete a project port spreadsheet before submitting numbers for a large port. This way, the Project Porting team can quickly locate pertinent information when processing your order.

After you’ve reviewed our project porting guidelines to confirm that your port qualifies as a project, perform the following steps:

  1. Download the project port spreadsheet (available at the bottom of this page).
  2. Fill it out starting in Cell A-2. Please note that each telephone number needs to be entered in its own row on the Spreadsheet.
Column A Your Bandwidth Account Name or Account Number.
Column B The Billing Telephone Number (BTN) or the end user’s account.
Column C If you are porting the current Billing Telephone Number (BTN), please provide a New Billing Telephone Number (NBTN) to keep current account open or advise that we can disconnect any remaining phone numbers/services on the losing carrier’s account.
Column D The end user’s name as it appears with the losing carrier.
Column E-I The end user's service address.
Column J The numbers that you’d like to port to your Bandwidth Account.
Column K You may request a Firm Order Commitment (FOC) date. If you leave this column blank, then we'll submit for the first available date.
Column L-M The end user’s PIN and Account Number. These fields are required if we are porting from a wireless carrier.
Column N The person’s name who authorized the port on the Letter of Authorization (LOA).
Column O The date the signature was acquired.
Column P Indicate if your telephone number will be enabled for SMS and MMS.
Column Q If you don’t expect more than 250,000 thousand minutes of use per month, please type “Yes” in this column.
Column R Provide the Sub-Account and Location in which you’d like the numbers to reside.

Once you complete the project porting spreadsheet, please open a ticket with our Project Porting team.

Please reach out to your Account Manager regarding pricing related to project porting. Not sure who your Account Manager is? Please open a ticket with your Bandwidth Support Team or hit us up at (855) 864-7776!

On the project spreadsheet there is a column for "Eable SMS/MMS YES or NO?" This is not address in the video, so I assume to leave this column blank. Thank you.

Hi Jean,

Thanks for your question. In this field, please indicate if you'd like for your telephone number to be enabled for Messaging services. Acceptible responses in this field are 'Yes' or 'No'. If you don't subscribe to messaging services, you may either type 'No' or you may leave this field blank. If you have any additional questions, feel free to open a ticket.

Happy porting!
