Bolivia may finally get MNP

11 Mar 2015

Bolivia’s Autoridad de Regulacion y Fiscalizacion de Telecomunicaciones y Transportes (ATT) has revealed that it is looking to implement mobile number portability (MNP). Discussions with the country’s three cellular network operators – Entel, Tigo and Viva (NuevaTel) – have been ongoing since 2012, but TeleSemana cites a report from local newspaper El Deber which says that an announcement on the subject could be made within the next 15 days. Bolivia was home to an estimated 10.5 million mobile subscribers at the end of 2014, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
