Fixed number portability begins in four Chilean regions

Tuesday 17 April 2012 | 09:45 CET | News
Fixed number portability services have begun in the Chilean regions of Arica, Tarapaca, Antofagasta and La Araucania, reports Economia y Negocios Online. The service will give over 300,000 homes and business more choice in telecom operator and lower prices through increased competition, said telecommunications minister Jorge Atton. Customers must contact their new operator and give them the phone number they want to port, and show their ID and latest phone bill. It takes several days for the new operator to make the change.
