Wednesday 15th December 2010

Text too small?

The Commerce Commission has extended the current arrangement for number portability for both local and mobile telephone numbers for another six years.

Number portability enables customers to change their telecommunications provider but retain the same telephone number.

Recent figures from the Telecommunications Carriers' Forum showed that 500,000 consumers had ported their numbers since number portability was introduced in April 2007, with 170,000 ported in the past year.
