LSR

LSR (Local Service Request) is the industry name for the order in which carriers submit to other carriers to initiate a port order of a single or multiple telephone numbers.

How Bandwidth is Involved with LSRs

Bandwidth submits an LSR to the losing/current carrier in order to port phone numbers to the Bandwidth network on behalf of our customers.

What Are the Benefits of LSRs

We make this process easy by providng our customers with a user-friendly portal to submit the necessary information, so we can then submit the LSR to the losing carrier.
