Number portability times reduced

12 Oct 2015

The Dominican Republic’s telecoms regulator, Instituto Dominicano de las Telecomunicaciones (Indotel), has reduced the maximum time given for operators to switch a fixed or mobile subscriber from one network to another under number portability rules. Mobile numbers must now be ported within 48 hours, while fixed providers have five days to make the switch. Previously, porting a number could take up to ten days.
