Business customers can now move to a new location and retain their existing phone numbers
11 June 2003
Swisscom Fixnet's introduction of Location Number Portability (LNP) for Direct Dial-In (DDI) numbers will fulfil a huge need where business customers are concerned. Relocating within the same area code will bring cost-savings as well as time-savings by doing away with the need to register new access numbers and reprogram PBXs.
The customer will pay a one-time charge for the porting of number blocks within the same network group or area code. This amount will depend on the number of blocks (DDI blocks) to be ported.
Swisscom Fixnet introduced LNP for residential customers in 2002.
