OZ Phone numbers set for shake-up
October 25, 2010

The communications regulator is set to overhaul Australia's telephone numbering
system after noticing an increase in the
use of internet-based phone calls, as well as general consumer apathy about the
cost of calls.

Use of area codes, free-call numbers and special numbers set aside for satellite
services and early-adaptors of internet
telephony will be examined in an historical shake-up of the telephone numbering
plan outlined in a discussion paper
released by the Australian Communications and Media Authority this morning.

"The ACMA cannot predict exactly where [technology] developments are leading,
but it is clear that they are leading away
from consistency with the current numbering arrangements," the ACMA's paper said.
