Azerbaijan implements MNP

3 Feb 2014

Mobile number portability (MNP) has been introduced in Azerbaijan, enabling wireless subscribers to retain their phone number if they switch provider, News.Az reports. The porting process is free for mobile customers and takes six business days to implement. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Azerbaijan’s mobile market is home to three GSM network operators: market leader Azercell, which had around 4.405 million subscribers at the end of September 2013 (a market share of 46.4%), followed by Bakcell with around 30.2% of the market and Azerfon (Nar Mobile), which accounted for the remaining 23.3% of mobile customers.
