What is WLR?
WLR now gives customers the ability to move both their lines and
calls, away from BT, to another supplier. The benefits to the customer are that
they can retain their existing phone number and all the features that they
currently enjoy but at a greatly reduced cost.
How does WLR work?
WLR is a very simple transfer of billing from one supplier to
another, all phone numbers and features are retained.
Who would own the lines?
Usually British Telecom (BT), would still own the lines, if
you had a fault for any reason you would contact the alternative
tier one carrier and they would arrange for an BT Openreach
engineer to visit and fix any faults.
An example of possible savings:
PLC Limited has 10 x Analogue Lines, ISDN30 with 30
Channels Enabled, so their monthly bill for line rental
If they transferred their lines to an alternative tier one carrier, who
offer more competitive line rental charges, their monthly
line rental would be £590, a saving of £60 a month, and if
you put this with the CPS
that's a saving of £290 a month, so over a year the PLC
Limited company would of saved nearly £3500.
