    It will be interesting to see how many landline customers can change carriers and keep their old numbers as some of Telecom's and TelstraClears (Saturns) exchanges are rather old and may not have the ability to pass the info on to a centralized phone number database to have the call rerouted..

    Yes, and there's also the fact that many people now have Telecom or at least Xtra email addresses that they may not want to change.
    This certainly put a dampner on things when number portability was recently introduced in Japan (details here).

    If it is anything like "Go Large" it will be a horrendous failure.
