Mobile number portability, a service mobile network patrons have been asking for since ages, is finally here. The service is being rolled out in 11 cities across the country, and the first city to have the service is Haryana. The service in the rest of the 11 cities is said to be implemented by December 20. On November 1, however, an announcement will be made to confirm the implementation status in these 11 circles.
Mobile number portability is the ability to retain one’s phone number despite changing service providers. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has already missed two deadlines for implementing this service.
