A record 370,000 Peruvian mobile users ported their phone number in October, some 8.3 percent more than the previous month, according to the latest figures released by telecom regulator Osiptel. The operators Entel and Claro (America Movil) again led the monthly portability rankings, adding 142,691 and 126,721 lines respectively but shedding 74,326 and 93,136 lines over the same period. Movistar (Telefonica) registered a large deficit, adding 78,093 users but losing 156,363, while Bitel was also a net loser, adding 22,495 but shedding 45,085.

The watchdog said a total of 5.25 million mobile lines have been ported since MNP was activated in July 2014, meaning around 14 percent of the total mobile lines currently in service (nearly 38 million) have been ported using the system.
