Indotel creates committee for NP administrator selection

5 Nov 2008

BNamericas is reporting that the Dominican Republic’s telecoms regulator Indotel has formed a committee intended to select a database administrator for number portability (NP). Jose Rafael Vargas, head of Indotel, announced the creation of the 25-person committee in a press release, whilst also noting that the international tender process to choose an NP administrator had already begun; foreign companies wishing to bid for the tender must partner with a domestic firm in order to participate in the process. NP is expected to be implemented in July 2009, and according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, it will be implemented for mobile-to-mobile and intra-regional fixed-to-fixed number transfer in the first instance.
