Mobile Pre-Porting Verification

B2B Wholesale Pty Ltd (known as BTB) have introduced additional steps to verify the identity of those requesting mobile porting. This is to safeguard your personal or company mobile numbers being fraudulently ported without your permission.

Why are we taking these extra steps?

Mobile porting fraud has become a bigger issue in recent years. In line with the new Telecommunications (Mobile Number Pre-Porting Additional Identity Verification) Industry Standard 2020 that came into effect on 30 April 2020, we have introduced extra checks to safeguard your mobile number.
