Chile implements full number portability

Wednesday 7 September 2016 | 12:17 CET | News
Chile's telecom regulator Subtel has announced that full number portability for fixed to mobile numbers and vice versa was introduced on 05 September. The regulator said the aim was to give users the possibility to choose the system that best suits them by allowing them to keep their phone number. Anyone calling a fixed number that's been ported to a mobile will now be informed of any additional cost before they proceed with the call. Subtel said a total of 7.43 million mobile and fixed numbers have been ported since the introduction of mobile number portability in January 2012.
