IMHO we are almost now in a 100% VOIP world and LICAs should not exist anymore - all New Zealand numbers should be 100% portable anywhere in the country
It costs no more for an RSP to route a call from your place to your neighbour than it does to route a call to invergargil as the same call goes through the same soft switch
You forget the few neaxs that still don't support this.
That's why i said almost 100% - Only 400000 NEAX lines left from the July press release
So..... Hurry up and scrap the rest of the NEAXs Oh wait........ not your problem anymore 😝
