ENACOM reduces MNP timeframe from five days to one

15 Mar 2017

Argentina’s National Entity for Communications (Ente Nacional de Comunicaciones, ENACOM) has reduced the timeframe within which the country’s operators must complete the process of porting a mobile number from one provider to another, from five business days to just one. The new mobile number portability (MNP) rule was set out in Resolucion 170-E/2017, which was formulated on 30 January, but only included in the ‘Boletin Oficial’ on 10 March. The watchdog claims that a total of 4.7 million mobile numbers have been ported since the process was formally introduced in March 2012.
