This will enable more choice for businesses and individuals when seeking to register a .TEL domain.  For example, organizations with numeric only trademarks or with two letter brands will be able to register their .TEL names and individuals will be able to register unique or lucky numbers as online identifier. The specific date and process for launching short and numeric-only .TEL names has not been made public, but updates will be communicated as more details become available.
