For simple ports, Lumen does not require a recent letter of authorization (LOA) signed by the customer of record; however, we reserve the right to request one at any time. It is the requesting provider’s responsibility to have a valid authorization on file. The local service provider (LSP) should have a copy of the end user's LOA on file. We do require an LOA for any requests related to managed-modem or dial-up-internet service.
To process a request for TN port out, the TN must be a valid Level 3 phone number on the Level 3 network. The following service provider IDs (SPIDs) are owned by Lumen (formerly Level 3) and you may submit your request for any TN associated with these SPIDs: 7058, 7150, 8318, and 8824. If you are trying to port out against other SPIDs please contact the appropriate service provider for those requests. Lumen is only able to process port out requests against legacy Level 3 inventory.
To process your request, we require that the customer information submitted on the local service request (LSR) match our records. In addition, we require a 24-hour notice of changes and cancels prior to your firm order confirmation (FOC) date to ensure continuity of service. FOC dates are valid for five calendar days including FOC date. Lumen does not provide concurrence; the carrier provider is expected to build NPAC subscriptions in enough time for auto-concurrence. You cannot create an NPAC subscription prior to receiving your FOC.
