Benin introduces number portability

2 Oct 2018

The Republic of Benin’s telecoms regulator ARCEP officially launched mobile number portability (MNP) on 28 September 2018, Agence Ecofin reports. MNP has been in preparation since July 2017, and has been piloted by ARCEP based on technical solutions from Porting Benin, a subsidiary of Dutch company Porting Xs. Arnaud Koudjan Nihoue, director of networks and infrastructure at ARCEP, declared that MNP will encourage the continuous improvement of operators’ quality of service and boost competition between the networks.
