The regulation also introduces an obligatory announcement for calls to the ported numbers in mobile networks and SITA wrote that after the end of the announcement, clients will have enough time to terminate the call without being charged for it. In its regulation, the Telecommunications Office recommends that users not be charged direct fees for services related to number portability but if operators decide to charge users, the recommended cost is €4 maximum.
