Turf war

From the NZ Herald today.

“The Commerce Commission yesterday ruled that phone companies must allow customers to keep their existing number when switching service providers. The ruling takes effect on April 1, 2007. It applies to landlines and cellular numbers.”

This is of great concern to me. Does this mean that one of my neighbours could move to, say, the South Island and take their phone number with them, so there’d be someone in Gore or Mosgiel attempting to represent the notorious 630?

This is frightening.
