Orange Armenia welcomes MNP decree

18 Dec 2012

The chief executive of Orange Armenia, Francis Gelibter, has reportedly welcomed the regulator, the Public Services Regulatory Commission’s (PSRC’s), decision to support a decree on mobile number portability (MNP) in the country. Under the decree accepted by the watchdog, MNP would be introduced in the east European nation from 1 January 2014 and would be free of charge to consumers. The introduction of MNP in Armenia will likely lead to a more competitive market, in turn driving down end user prices and improving the quality of mobile services provided.
