Number portability rules ready by end-2012 in Bolivia?

21 Aug 2012

Regulations governing number portability (NP) in Bolivia are expected by the end of this year, local news source Los Tiempos claims. Citing Walter Salinas, the director of audit and control at telecoms regulator La Autoridad de Telecomunicaciones y Transportes (ATT), the report suggests that the watchdog has already held meetings with mobile operators with a view to examining any issues that may occur from the implementation of NP. It is understood that cellcos have raised concerns regarding customer churn and the investment costs required to prepare for the introduction of NP.
