Avea ready for MNP

15 May 2007

Turkey’s number three cellular operator by subscribers Avea says it has installed the necessary equipment to support mobile number portability (MNP) when it is eventually launched. Avea’s MNP solution was supplied by Alcatel-Lucent and Argela. MNP was due to be introduced in Turkey at the start of this year but the launch was delayed following technical difficulties; last month the country’s largest cellular provider, Turkcell, said it was still waiting for the allocation of number blocks despite having handed over the required payments.
