Telephone numbers

Telephone numbers are a resource of the state, which is used for provision of public electronic communications services. Telephone numbers, used in public electronic communications networks are managed according to the National telephone numbering plan, approved by RRT. RRT also approves The Rules for the Allocation and Use of Telephone Numbers and ensures efficient use of electronic communications resources. RRT strives for a sufficient amount of national telephone numbers, necessary for public electronic communication services and for application of the numbering plan and procedures in the way ensuring equal possibilities for all the providers of public electronic communications services. RRT especially strives for ensuring that the undertakings, to which national telephone number resources are allocated do not discriminate other providers of electronic communications services to the extent it is related with numbering sequences, used for provision of their services.

The National telephone numbering plan regulates the purpose and structure of the telephone numbers, used in public electronic communications networks. The short telephone numbers (1XXX), fixed telephone communication service numbers (3XXXXXXX, 4XXXXXXX, 5XXXXXXX), mobile telephone communication service numbers (6XX XXXXX) and service numbers (7XXXXXXX, 8XXXXXXX, 9XXXXXXX) are clearly separated in the plan. The numbering plan itself complies with the main requirements of sufficiency of numbering, ensuring of non-discrimination, acceptability for the consumer and harmonization, raised in the European Union.

Number portability

The number portability service gives the users freedom and possibilities to choose the services, provided by the operator best satisfying their needs and at the same time to retain the existing telephone number. With the existence of the number portability service the competition between the operators, providing the service increases, since it is important for them to not only attract the largest number of subscribers possible to their network, but also to retain the existing ones.

Number portability is the right of the subscriber to retain the subscriber number, used for receipt of telecommunication services when changing the provider of public telephone communication services or the place or way of provision of services.

Starting from 1 March 2004 the number portability service, foreseen in Article 30 of Directive 2002/22/EC (Universal Service Directive) of the European Parliament and of the Council was implemented in Lithuania.
