Imagine you have moved home a few blocks down the road and request your local phone company that you wish to retain the same telephone number. The response you get is they need 15 days to make that happen. Reason: A technician needs to go to the field to identify the specific pair of cables required for you to retain your number. That is because the data relating to the cables is stored in paper form. Sunram enables phone companies to automate their network management so that you get your connection immediately.
