Peru’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) has published a proposed decree laying out the conditions for the implementation of mobile number portability (MNP), writes BNamericas quoting local daily Diario Gestión. The bill stipulates three stages for implementation. The first will see the drawing up of technical guidelines for implementing MNP infrastructure. This phase will start when the decree comes into force and is due for completion by 30 June 2008. The second phase, in which MTC will determine other requirements for operators, is due to start on 1 July 2008 and run until the end of the year. The final stage involves technical tests, to be carried out from 1 January 2009 to 30 September 2009.
