Following are steps that you can follow to easily port your mobile number online.

With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing most of us to be confined within the four walls of our house, it is needless to say that our dependency for a strong and stable internet connection has risen exponentially. But while we demand a seamless internet experience at all times, chances are that you have faced patchy or unstable connectivity at some point. Understandably, for those who cannot afford a strong broadband connection, mobile data is the only way to ensure that their workflow is maintained while working from home. But what if your area doesn’t offer stable mobile connectivity? Well, you can either try and request your mobile telecom operator to improve the connectivity or the most simple solution is to port your mobile number to another telecom provider that offers better service in your area. Today porting your mobile number is fairly easy and can be done without leaving your home. Here are some simple steps:
