Telephone service providers will meet at the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) in Barataria today, Tuesday February 16th, to sign a contract with porting provider PortingXS of the Netherlands, that will make mobile number portability a reality in Trinidad and Tobago by March 31st 2016.
Number portability gives telephone consumers the choice to change their telephone service providers without changing their numbers.
Consumers can therefore keep their telephone identities (their phone numbers) whilst benefitting from easier access to other service provider packages, without the need to advise friends, family, colleagues, customers and clients that their telephone numbers have changed.
Mobile porting, or moving a telephone number from one service provider to another, can occur on any prepaid or postpaid mobile registered number that is not currently barred or suspended from making outgoing calls.
