Majority of Dutch port number when switching provider

Thursday 8 December 2011 | 17:05 CET | News
Six out of ten (62%) Dutch consumers keep their number when they change mobile provider, according to the Telecompaper Consumer Panel. Almost 900 consumers aged 15 to 65 were asked in November if they used number porting the last time they changed provider. Among consumers with a postpaid contract, 71 percent kept their number, while among prepaid consumers, the figure was less than half. Men and people with a higher education are more likely to use number porting.
