Analyst: Paul Budde


This report has been archived. Numbering issues centre on national numbering plans, which in Australia is the responsibility of the Australian Communications Authority (ACA). This report overviews the Australian numbering plan and number portability, both for fixed network numbers – local, national rates, premium rate and freephone – and mobile numbers. New developments in relation to Short Message Service (SMS) are giving a commercial edge to this topic. In addition, a brief introduction to number management by parties other than the ACA and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is provided.
