Seeing new legislation come out today making it easier to switch mobile providers but keep the same number - https://www.theguardian.com/money/2019/jun/28/mobile-phone-switch-network-text-pac-code - reminded me of how long I’ve had the same phone number. I’ve had my number since 1985. That was back in the days when reception was ****e, there were just two networks, no such thing as roaming, phones were £1500 upwards, there was a £50 connection fee and a £25 standing monthly charge (no free minutes and texts were still years away), 50p per minute or part minute for a call and the industry standard was a 5 year contract! The good old days? Well, it was for me because I used to sell/connect them up and times were goooooooood! Loadsamoney - used to get £600+ a time for each connection.
