But, that implies the actual agreement with The Operator is such that it can be the ENUM operator for the CC in question. And that The Operator is interested in such a design. so "The Operator" is a pan-European single entity then? IMHO not very likely given that the European Commission OTOH is so super-eager to enhance competition, for example. If it's set up the classic way as a PSTN service, then IMHO this number space will be "shared" amongst operators like +46 or +49 is. That, however, leads to a very interesting question: how to deploy cross-country _AND_ cross-operator number portability? As I do not believe that the Commission would do without... Best, -C.
