Easiest provider to port in/out from?

Which provider is the easiest to port in/out from? I've used Petro in the past but I've heard of people recently having issues so I want to see if there's an easier option.

Just port out. When I left Petro to go to Mobilicity, it took 24 hours to complete the port.

Do you know if the reverse is also true (going from Petro back to Rogers?)

My guess is probably. My one experience porting Petro to Mobilicity was back in 2012. Wireless porting is supposed to take 2-30 minutes.

When I ported from Rogers to Telus to get the $60 deal in December the port was complete before I left the store.

When I ported from Koodo to Videotron, it took less than 10 minutes, I was still at the kiosk when it happened. The port was done by the Videotron rep.
When I ported from Rogers to Koodo, it was within a few minutes. I did this online through the Koodo portal.

So I went with Virgin, 16 hours later and the port still hasn't completed.

Went from Fido to Freedom and it took 2-3 hours to complete the porting. They gave me a temporary number to use in the meantime
