Mobile Number Portability May Be Delayed If not now, then when?
Advertisement
#1
The government's much-hyped mobile number portability (MNP) plan has hit a roadblock. (Techtree had earlier reported that MNP would be introduced in India in September 2009.)


Minutes of the meeting on MNP, exclusively available with UTVi, indicates that access service providers have indicated that MNP roll out in a phased manner is not feasible.

Other issues raised include:

- Problems in call routing and charging in the MNP scenario
- No pan-India readiness for MNP; and
- Difficult to meet the government set deadline for implementing MNP

There is also a technical clash between location routing numbers (LRNs) and STD codes in at least 200 sites.

Department of telecom (DoT), however, has asked all service providers to adhere to the timeline.

The government has set a time line for implementation of the first phase of MNP as September 2009.
