Mobile Number Portability

Mobile Number Portability

The Mobile Number Portability(MNP) is expected to launch by second quarter of this year. Although Malaysia is late to offer this service-Singapore started in 1997, Hong Kong in 1999 and Australia in 2001- it would still be an advantage for Malaysia to learn from these countries as MNP has resulted bad damages to the mobile industry in certain counties.

With MNP, you could remain your number while switching your mobile operator. This gives a clear message to the mobile operator that the best services/offering wins the biggest pie of the market. In other words, as an example, DiGi could lead the market overnight although it is cuurently the smallest mobile operator.

P:S: Are we ready to swicth to other mobile provider when MNP is implemented in Malaysia? How about Telcos? How about the customer data based & Billing System.... Macam mana nak bil customer yek?
