PTS proposes geographic number porting across regions

Thursday 19 May 2016 | 15:47 CET | News
Swedish regulator PTS has proposed relaxing the restrictions on geographic numbers so they can be used in other areas and also on mobile networks. This will help increase the availability of numbers and respond to demand for number porting across regions. Allowing for more flexible use of the geographic numbers was part of the regulator's strategic plan decided in 2014. PTS proposes that it should be possible for operators to provide this flexible use, but they would not be obliged to offer the possibility. The proposal will be open for consultation until 15 June.
