Portability popularity

4 Jan 2006

Finnish mobile users transferred almost 1.5 million numbers from one operator to another during 2005. The number portability provider Numpac says more than a quarter of the 4.7 million mobile numbers in Finland have been ported between operators once since number portability was introduced in July 2003, while 0.5 million have been transferred twice and 140,000 have been transferred three times.
