MNP launches on schedule

1 May 2019

Ukraine is launching its long-awaited mobile number portability (MNP) system today (1 May 2019) as scheduled, reports quoting the director of the Ukrainian State Centre of Radio Frequencies, the overseer of the MNP implementation project. The official noted, however, that mobile users submitting applications to port their telephone number to another network today will not see their number transferred until 6 May. The standard number porting completion period is three working days, but due to 1 May being a public holiday, the first ports will not be completed until after the weekend.
