Chile launches mobile number portability system

Monday 16 January 2012 | 17:27 CET | News
Chile has launched the mobile number portability system. The Chilean government introduced the portability system for fixed-line numbers in December 2011. Mobile customers across Chile can now also demand providers to supply unblocked mobile phones that can be used on any network. Consumers can ask their operator to unblock their handset or ask their new provider to do so at no charge.
