MNP goes live in Senegal

2 Sep 2015

Senegal’s telecoms regulator L’Autorite de Regulation des Telecoms et des Postes (ARTP) has launched mobile number portability (MNP), enabling the country’s consumers to retain their phone number if they switch wireless service provider. The transfer of a mobile number to a different operator is free of charge for consumers.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, at the end of last year the ARTP said it had pushed back plans to launch MNP to 2015, despite previous assurances that it would go live in October 2014. Tests relating to the introduction of the MNP system began on 22 July, ahead of a full-blown launch on 1 September 2015.
