Migrating a mobile phone number

.., as I learned today, seems to be understood as a two-part process by providers: one half is moving the number away from your old provider, the other is moving it to the new provider. While I've seen charges for moving a number to a provider, charging for moving it away came as shock for me today. And it's expensive like hell, holy sh..... cow. So I started looking around to see if this might be something separating good and evil providers but it doesn't look like that to me so far. Here is what I collected:

Provider/Contract Charge in € 24.95 / clever9 24.95
congstar 24.99
fonic 25.00
maxximal 30.72
simyo 25.00

Maybe I can find out why they all charge about the same.
