[VoiceOps] Porting to Level3

I believe Level 3 has always had a "default" port time unless you
specifically schedule with them to have the port occur at a specific time,
8AM EST for "internal" ports and I think maybe 2PM EST for normal external
ports.  You can also get control of porting from the Level3 Portal using
what they call "AdOpt" by talking to you account manager.

You can check this page if you need more details on their porting process:

This is what I have experienced with Level 3 also.  We build the route 
the night before.
