18 Oct 2019

After more than a decade under consideration, mobile number portability (MNP) will be made available across China from 30 November, state broadcaster CCTV has revealed. As per the report, pilot projects took place in the provinces of Tianjin, Hainan, Jiangxi, Hubei and Yunnan in September, and MNP is now live in each location. The remainder of the country’s provinces – including autonomous regions under government control – will introduce portability on a rolling basis between 10 November and 25 November, and the government hopes to confirm nationwide availability by the end of that month.
