An FOC (Firm Order Commitment) is provided by the losing service provider (also may be known as current service provider). This is done in response to a port order issued to them to move a number from that providers’ network to another (known as the winning or new service provider) service providers’ network. A FOC is a positive order acceptance response and includes the date the losing/current carrier will release the number to port to the winning/new service provider.
