10 December 1999
In decision no. 99-1076 dated 8 December 1999, and at the request of Esprit Télécom France, ART repealed decision no. 98-646 dated 17 July 1998, which had assigned the transporter selection digit 6 to this company.
In order to determine the conditions of use of the digit 6 which would be most favourable to market development, ART has launched a public call for comments. It hopes to receive the opinions and comments of the players on the telecommunications sector, users and consumer representatives on a plan to create a new category of numbers called "simplified 4, 5 or 6-digit numbers" intended for end users, major corporations and institutions.
