Bolivia’s telecoms regulator, the Autoridad de Regulacion y Fiscalizacion de Telecomunicaciones y Transportes (ATT), has revealed that it plans to implement mobile number portability (MNP) next year. Luis Felipe Guzman, executive director of the ATT, was quoted by local newspaper La Razon as saying: ‘We estimate that within a year we will be able to put everything into effect for number portability.’ A feasibility study is currently being carried out, TeleSemana reports, and the government is preparing to launch a tender to find a company to manage the number portability system. Bolivia was home to an estimated 10.5 million mobile subscribers at the end of 2014, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database.
