Number portability launches in Klang Valley

3 Sep 2008

Prior to a nationwide launch the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has announced that mobile number portability (MNP) has been made available in the Klang Valley, ZDnet Asia is reporting. The service is currently only available to pre-paid mobile subscribers, but is expected to be made available to post-paid users within two weeks. Each service provider will only be accepting 100 requests each day as part of the initial service introduction, and only personal users may make use of the service; business customers must wait until MNP is launched nationwide in October this year. According to the MCMC, service providers will be allowed to set their own charges for MNP, although the regulator has set a cap of MYR25 (USD7.4).
