Changing the telephone company without necessarily changing the number will become possible in Romania, too, sometime next year.
In a first phase, only fixed telephony numbers will be portable.
Costs related to keeping the number upon moving to another service provider will be billed to the user.
In Europe, costs range between 10 and 31 EUR for a fixed telephony number and between 0 and 47 EUR for a mobile number.
One foreseeable problem is that a caller will no longer know which company services the number he/she is calling, and this raises the matter of whether the respective call is within the caller's network or not.
Apparently, the call recipient will pay for the difference between the two types of call.
One option is to use a billing method similar to that used for roaming calls: if the called number appears to be serviced by the same company as that of the caller, but it is actually not, the caller pays the price for a call within the network and the call recipient pays for the difference.
