ANRCETI holding a press conference on MNP

25 Jun 2013

Moldova’s telecoms watchdog the National Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Information Technology (ANRCETI) has listed a press conference for 25 June 2013 to mark the forthcoming launch of the mobile number portability (MNP) services in Republic of Moldova, scheduled to start on 1 July 2013. According to the regulator’s press announcement, the conference will be attended by the Minister of Information Technology and Communications Pavel Filip, ANRCETI Director Sergiu Sitnic, the administrator of the central database for number portability and mobile operators’ representatives.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, under Administrative Board Decision No.17, mobile network operators working in cooperation with the Centralized Data Base (CDB) administrator, were obliged to ensure the technical launch of MNP by 1 May 2013, and provide the service to commercial customers by 1 July. The date for the service deployment was later postponed by ANRCETI in the wake of a request from cellcos asking for more time to finalise the necessary modifications to their billing systems for calls to ported numbers.
