14 Oct 2010

Ghana’s telecoms regulator the National Communications Authority (NCA) has named PortingXS and its local partner CIS Ghana as the preferred bidder to supply the central equipment and services needed to implement Mobile Number Portability (MNP) in the country. PortingXS, which is headed by Porting Access of the Netherlands, was one of nine firms to submit bids for the equipment. The applications were evaluated by a team made up from members of the NCA and representatives of the country’s six mobile operators. GBC News quotes the watchdog as saying it is on track to launch MNP by 1 July 2011.
