MNP a priority for Zimbabwe

26 Jan 2018

The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) says it is still looking to introduce mobile number portability (MNP), with the project one of its ‘top priorities’. Bulawayo 24 reports that MNP should be launched within a year, allowing customers to switch their service provider while retaining their own phone number. The government first announced plans for MNP in 2013 but its implementation has been hit by a series of delays. The wireless market is served by three players: privately-owned Econet and state-backed firms NetOne and Telecel.
