Antigua and Barbuda set to implement MNP

Tuesday 18 December 2018 | 11:39 CET | News
The lower house of the parliament of Antigua and Barbuda has approved an amendment to the Telecommunications Act of 2018 put forward by telecommunications minister Melford Nicholas with a view to implementing mobile number portability (MNP), reports The Antigua Observer. The amendment has been forwarded to the country's senate and, if approved, will enable mobile customers to retain their number when changing operator, said the report. Nicholas described MNP as "the most powerful agent" in forcing operators to price their services fairly.
