Italian operators are struggling to meet portability requirements in view of the sheer numbers of users switching contracts following the arrival of Iliad at the end of May, reports Corriere delle Comunicazioni. Operators are taking up to 10 days to port numbers instead of the required 3 days and the number of MNP requests that have resulted from the recent price war have caused a significant backlog, said the report, adding that communications regulator Agcom has called an urgent meeting to solve the problem.
