Cofetel approves number portability regulation

20 Dec 2006

Mexican telecoms regulator Cofetel has approved a set of regulations for introducing mobile and fixed line number portability, reports BNamericas citing a statement by the watchdog. Cofetel has selected an all-call query (ACQ) system, which uses a central database to then route calls to their correct number. The system will be implemented over the next 275 days, in one phase, and will contain the numbers of the country’s 20 million fixed and 50 million mobile telephone lines.
