The Italian Communications Authority has recently deliberated and approved one of the first set of rules and regulations addressing the VoIP sector in rapid growth.
The newly approved legislation introduces the prefix 5 to identify so called “nomad” telecommunications which use the Internet to make and receive telephone calls. The peculiarity of VoIP-In telephone numbers addressed by recent legislation is their independence from geographical location. At the same time VoIP-In numbers will be subjected to existing rules that foresee number portability and the possibility to make public utility emergency calls.
Further information will soon be available from the Italian Communications Authority official website.
