Indotel launches number portability consultation

5 Jul 2006

The Dominican Republic’s telecoms regulator Indotel has launched a public consultation on its proposed regulations governing the introduction of number portability, with a deadline of 28 July for interested parties to submit feedback. Indotel expects the regulations to be formalised by the end of the year; mobile number portability (MNP) will be prioritised, whilst portability for fixed line numbers will first be introduced in specific areas, expanding to numbers between larger geographical areas and finally between services, such as the transfer of a mobile number to a fixed line. Last month, Indotel said it expected the implementation of portability to cost operators around USD25 million.
