IrishVoip.com offers a low cost way to keep your landline number or get a new landline number without having to pay line rental. They charge €20 per year for a new landline number or to port over your number. Alternatively, you can top up your account by €5 per month and you will get a free landline number or port in your number. I have been a happy customer for years now and have previously reviewed IrishVoip.com.
Today I received an email from them offering one month free for new customers!:

I was with Magnet for our internet and phone but decided to move over to eir. I had hoped to sign up to a landline/broadband bundle and port the number over from Magnet to eir. We’ve had the same number for years so we didn’t want to lose it. As it turns out eir were unable to port the number across as ‘the number was on a different exchange’. They couldn’t give any further information or explain why I was able to port from eircom to Magnet in the first place without issue. It made no sense to me or to ComReg. Anyway I gave up trying and I signed up for broadband only with eir and looked for a VOIP provider where I could port my number to. In the end I signed up with IrishVoip.com. Porting the number consisted of filling out one form and including a copy of the Magnet bill. The port was completed without any issue. I’ve been using IrishVoip.com ever since and been very happy with their service and price.
I signed up to Irish Voips €5(ex VAT) per month Move Your Number Service. I top up by €5 a month and this credit can be used for calls. There is no cost to move the number. If you don’t want to pay €5 per month you can pay €20 per year to move the number. If you pay annually you will need to top up in addition to make calls. It is only now when I type this I realise I should be on the €20 a year plan as I have a balance of over €80 on my account! I rarely make any calls from the landline as my mobile phone includes free international calls. If you do not want to port your number over to Irish Voip you can also get a new number under the same terms as above. You can also select what location in Ireland you would like the number to be e.g. 01 for Dublin, 061 for Limerick etc.
