Sri Lanka to implement Mobile Number Portability

Bookmark Sri Lanka to implement Mobile Number Portability

Sri Lanka’s Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has called for consultancy services to suggest ways to introduce mobile phone number portability that will allow subscribers to switch networks while using the same number.

The TRC published a note on its website inviting expressions of interest from companies by May 20, 2010.

It said the TRC had got a grant from the Institutional Development Fund of the World Bank to “develop its knowledge base and implementation capacity, enabling it to design and implement Mobile Number Portability.”

The consultant will be selected in accordance with World Bank guidelines. The consulting firm will assist the TRC in establishing the regulatory framework for implementing Mobile Number Portability (MNP) in Sri Lanka.

“This is intended to facilitate and maintain effective competition among the mobile service operators with the ultimate goal of providing a cost-effective, efficient service while improving the quality of service to the benefit of consumers,” the TRC said. lbo
