TRAI wants telcos to bear number portability cost
Advertisement
#1
Telecom regulator TRAI wants service providers to bear the cost of supporting mobile number portability, a move which operators say

is heavily loaded against them and will benefit MNP operators only.

The regulator has sought stakeholders' opinion through a consultation paper by tomorrow on MNP charges, which will decide what the customer has to pay.

"It therefore follows that the recipient operator shall not charge any additional fee for porting-in the mobile number of the subscriber other than the 'porting charge'," according to the consultation paper.

This porting charge shall not be more than the "per port (of) transaction charge" to be paid by the operator to the MNP service provider, which will be determined by TRAI after the consultation process, the paper says.

The regulator has said if an operator does not give its response by July 17, it will be presumed that it (the operator) agrees with the suggestions.

Some GSM operators have said this will benefit MNP operators.

Syniverse and Telcordia-backed MNP Interconnect are the two managers of mobile number portability in the country.
