The 25th of April each year is World Telephone Day, and one Australian telco customer has kept their number for 26 years!

What’s the history behind this day, and how long have you kept your number?

Jacob said: “I’ve had the same mobile number since my first phone in the year 2000. In that time, I’ve even moved around the world, and paid to keep my Australian accounts active so that my phone number doesn’t disappear.
