The number of Finnish mobile users opting to change wireless providers is escalating, according to a Reuters report. The survey found that more than half a million users switched networks between January and March 2005, up 48% on the 380,000 that did so in the same period of 2004. The Finnish Comms Regulatory Authority (FICORA) introduced mobile number portability (MNP) in the second half of 2003.
