Jamaica’s Office of Utilities Regulations (OUR) has received five applications from firms looking to manage the country’s number portability systems. A report from the Jamaica Gleaner names the parties as: local company Productive Business Solutions, plus overseas bidders Mediafon (Lithuania), Porting Access (Netherlands), Telcordia Technologies/Iconectiv (US) and Teletech (Slovenia). The regulator will select the winning provider on a competitive basis, with fixed and mobile number portability scheduled to be implemented by the end of May 2015.
