Mobile number portability to be introduced from 13 June

16 Apr 2008

The Singapore government revealed yesterday that mobile phone users will be able to switch providers without changing their numbers from 13 June. The 130,000 wireless subscribers who have previously ported their numbers have had to do so using a call-forwarding solution, under which the customer has to use their old and new numbers concurrently. These users will be given until 14 May to decide which number they want to retain. ‘Consumers can truly look forward to having one number for life,’ said Leong Keng Thai, deputy chief executive of the Infocomm Development Authority, at a press conference.
