Mobile phone operator Tele2 lost 915 phone numbers in May in Estonia to phone number portability, and over four months the company has lost nearly 4,000 numbers, reports Public Broadcasting. EMT in May lost 101 numbers and Elisa gained 1,016 numbers, Technical Supervision Board phone number portability statistics indicate. In the first four months of the year, Tele2 has lost 3,932 numbers and Elisa and EMT have gained 2,628 and 1,304 numbers, respectively. Mobile number portability (MNP) enables mobile telephone users to retain their mobile telephone numbers when changing from one mobile network operator to another. Tele2 spokesman Hans Saarvelt has said that the number portability statistics only shows the balance between the operators but doesn’t take the general picture into account.
