Trai Might Invalidate Your 10 Digit Mobile Number in Future
The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) has come out with five recommendations. The telecom body is pushing to create a ‘Unified Numbering Plan’ so that adequate numbering resources can be maintained for the fixed line (landline) and mobile services…
Totally useless step!
There are millions of extra sim cards which are not even used and should be deactivated first
So 10 Billion Connections are less for 1.3 billion Population 🙁
Why not Disable inactive connections?
Sab Foonkh ke baithe hain.
Wow! Another stupid decision in the pipeline after the DTH tariff fiasco.
It's more about future proofing. It's not only about 1.3 billion people but also about billions of connected devices which also are assigned numbers. How many numbers can you free up by deactivating inactive SIMs? Limited. China also has eleven digit mobile numbers for the same reason.
yes it only 1.3 billion population, and i dont think even childern, and very poor is needed mobile/tephone number.
Secondly u must be aware that 13 digit M2M, number sim are already exist in market with some IOT devices, so those wont require for personal use.
For dialling to person 10 digit mobile number or STD code+ phone number of 10 digit is enough, never ever needed 11 digit.
If they inactive then some pvt operator so called high number of customer and no1 post is disturb the investment economy .!
You belive One person have 8 extra connected devices. Which needs to be connected to network ?
My 2 cents:
Of course, not everyone would be using 8 connections, but with the growing number of connected devices we need a SIM card for every device, for example, the growing number of phone connections for phones, tablets, dongles on on hand and home automation devices, vehicles, a lot of other IoT devices on the other hand. An alternative would be the current 13 digit number for all other uses, but this would mean no interoperability. Telcos would lock them to non-calling devices and charge high prices. 11 digit numbering would solve this problem and people can start shuffling their data SIM cards to their vehicles and use their vehicle SIM card for calling at comfort.
On the flip side, this would mean all those premium numbers are not going to seem premium anymore. Also, TRAI recommends using the existing 13 digit numbering for M2M and IoT devices which again is useless as telcos would continue to exploit this.
My idea would be to unify landline numbering and mobile numbering like they do it in the US - area code + number. This would open up the series below 6 and efficiently make use of vacant numbers.
Considering the fact that there are landline numbers in the 6,7,8 series as well. the actual numbers available for mobility would be in the range of 275 Crore including inactive ones.
Indirectly slap to Pio 😉 🙂 😛
