Colombia’s Communications Regulation Commission (Comision de Regulacion de Comunicaciones, CRC) has announced that it is reducing the window within which number portability (NP) requests must be processed from three days to one day from 1 July 2020. The new watchdog – which was launched on 3 February this year – reduced the portability window with Resolucion CRC 5929 de 2020. According to CRC data, a total of 22 million fixed and mobile numbers have been ported since the process was introduced in 2011, with 4.3 million requests processed in 2019 alone.
