Government confirms 1 September number portability deadline

24 Aug 2006

Israel’s Finance and Communications Ministries have confirmed that fixed and mobile number portability will be introduced on the original 1 September deadline, after they opted not to employ a three-month extension period provided for under the country’s telecoms law. A number of operators have said they will not be ready for portability until mid-2007 and many were hoping for the process to be delayed until December at least. It is widely expected there will be an appeal against the decision.
