Monday 19 June 2017 | 11:02 CET | News
The amount of 06 mobile numbers in the Netherlands is not expected to run out soon, according to latest numbering report from regulator ACM. While 91 percent of the available numbers are issued to operators, around 35 percent of these are not in use, the ACM said. It also found that while fewer people are using fixed lines, the number of geographic numbers issued is increasing. This is due to more players using geographic numbers to offer business telephony services over the internet.
