Chile's Subtel detects 'anomalies' in portability figures

Tuesday 11 December 2018 | 11:05 CET | News
Chilean telecommunications regulator Subtel announced that an investigation into the mobile number portability (MNP) figures provided by the country's operators detected "anomalies" in some transactions, mostly prepay numbers. In a statement, the watchdog said the probe of figures provided by operators from November 2017 to May 2018 revealed that 20 percent of numbers ported registered no traffic or top-ups during that period. Subtel said it will be taking no action at this stage but is calling for greater control and transparency on the part of operator sales staff above all.
