The Romanian telecoms regulator has announced that just over 1.2 million phone numbers had been ported to a different provider by the end of last year.
Of the total, 824,153 were mobile telephone numbers and 383,272 fixed telephone numbers. :Last year was also the busiest since number portability was launched in October 2008 -- with 274 thousand numbers ported.
A review of the statistics shows that 80% of mobile number porting requests come from contract customers, with prepay customers seemingly happier to simply buy a new SIM Card.
Vodafone is again the network with the greatest gain of subscribers, i.e. 288,424, followed by Orange, with 270,652 numbers, Cosmote, with 254,646 numbers, RCS & RDS, with 8,299 numbers and Romtelecom, with 1,400 mobile telephone numbers.
