38.3 Lakh Users opt for MNP
The number of subscribers opting for mobile number portability (MNP) has more than doubled in less than a month, data released by the telecom regulator revealed.
By February-end, around 38.33 lakh people had opted for MNP, a service that allows subscribers to switch service providers but retain their original cellphone number, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India said on Wednesday.
Till February 5, about 17.11 lakh subscribers had put in requests for changing their mobile service provider. However, the MNP impact has been limited, given that only a fraction of the 771 million mobile subscribers have so far opted for MNP.source
