Would You Switch After Portable Numbers?

Jun 20 2003 - 01:21 PM ET | In The News
A recent survey asked people if they would switch after number portability kicks in (hopefully in Novemeber). The results were interesting: * 16 percent may discontinue their local phone service once they can transfer their phone numbers. * 27 percent indicated that they would switch wireless providers once they received a better offer. (Ed. note, this is shockingly low... Who wouldn't change for a better offer?) * 6 percent said they would switch services a day after number portability took effect [via TechDirt] We thought more people would like to change, but it could be that too many are still under contract to do so. We want to know if you're going to change... Comments are open.
