There is some good news for all you people waiting for MNP to come in. Telecom Ministry, a couple of days back announced the confirmation of MNP in the next two months.
MNP i.e. Mobile number portability is a service that will allow cell phone users to switch their telecom service provider without changing their mobile number. Initially, this service will be launched in the four metros followed by rest of the country over the next 6-12 months.
As per the guidelines provided by the government, the whole country will be divided into two MNP zones consisting of 11 circles with two metros in each zone.
All this is fine but the big question which lies ahead is, how much will our service providers charge for MNP? At present, we don’t have any idea about the pricing structure for MNP but it is definitely expected to be on the higher end.
