'Open, closed' dial plans?
As can be seen at
dialing plans (or dial plans) can be open and closed. It is not immediately comprehensible what this means.
I find a decent explanation below on that page, right above the 'See also' section:
- An "open" dialing plan is one in which there are different dialing arrangements for local and long distance telephone calls. This means that to call another number within the same city or area, callers need dial only the number, but for calls outside the area, an area code is required. In a "closed" plan, the number dialed is the same, regardless of where in the country the call originates.
- It is not immediately comprehensible what that means because it is wrong usage of terms defined for numbering plans. The article is simply wrong to use such terminology. Kbrose (talk) 17:53, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
- The present article lacks a decent definition of the term, ie what 'open' and 'closed' means. The other article offers one, but you say it is wrong. You don't say what exactly is wrong.
- Instead of just being negative and signing off, why don't you offer a constructive alternative, one that meets your quality criteria and my comprehension criteria?
