A telephone number used to identify a type of service rather than a geographical location, such as freephone (080X), local call rate (084X), national call rate (087X) and premium rate (09X) services. Mobile, pager and personal numbers (07X) are also non-geographic numbers.
Number portability between operators enables a customer to transfer from one operator to a second operator and retain the same number, provided the customer remains at the same address. It is obligatory between mobile operators.
