Argentina to get MNP by August 2011

18 Aug 2010

Argentine newspaper Cronista reports that President Cristina Fernandez has ordered the regulation of a mobile number portability (MNP) service. A resolution has been passed which stipulates that MNP must be made available by the country’s cellcos by August 2011. The move is widely believed to be a response to repeated rate rises by operators: the last adjustment in tariff prices was implemented on 11 August, with rises of up to 20%.
