Spanish ported numbers up again in 2016 after 3 years

Monday 22 May 2017 | 09:21 CET | News
The number of Spanish consumers porting their mobile number to another operator came to 5.67 million last year, the first annual increase since 2013, reports Xataka Movil, citing data from communications regulator CNMC. The portability figures have been falling steadily since 2013, when 6.77 million users changed their operator, but the sheer range of convergent offers available prompted some 11.4 percent of customers to request mobile number portability (MPN) last year.
