Regulator says MNP will be available by Dec-07

20 Oct 2006

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) is confident that mobile number portability (MNP) will be introduced by December 2007, despite lengthy delays in legislating the service, writes The Star local daily. MNP was first proposed by the government in 2004 and initially scheduled to be implemented in 2005. However, it was decided that more research needed to be conducted and in September 2005 the MCMC published a public inquiry paper inviting submissions on the service. After a period of silence, the regulator has now announced that it is still looking at how to legislate and implement MNP.
