TRAI allows portability within same circle
Advertisement
#1
New Delhi, Sept. 23 In a move that could benefit operators with mobile services based on both GSM and CDMA technologies, the regulator has approved number portability within the same circle .

“Mobile Number Portability includes porting from one technology to another technology of the same service provider. It is immaterial whether the donor and the recipient operators are the same or different as the functions of the donor operator and the recipient operator are to be carried out independently,” the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) stated in its regulation released on Wednesday.

This means that operators such as Reliance Communications will be able to port their CDMA subscribers to GSM network and allow them to retain their numbers.

Mobile Number Portability (MNP) allows the subscribers to retain their existing mobile telephone number when they move from one mobile operator to another, irrespective of the technology.

TRAI has, however, limited porting to within the same circle. This means a Delhi subscriber cannot port his number if he shifts base to Chennai.

Analysts have, however, played down the impact of MNP on the churn.
