Nextel gets number portability

8 Oct 2008

BNamericas is reporting that Telcordia has implemented its mobile number portability (MNP) gateway for digital trunking operator Nextel Mexico, citing a statement from the US-based clearing house. ‘By reducing number portability’s cost and complexity, the number portability gateway enables Nextel Mexico to add customers efficiently and quickly, so they begin driving revenue within hours instead of days,’ Telcordia’s president of interconnection solutions Richard Jacowleff said

Mexican telecoms regulator Cofetel has also announced that, since the launch of MNP on 12 July 2008, 101,491 subscribers have ported their numbers to alternative providers.
