Since may 1, Ukraine has finally introduced the principle of mobile number portability. This occurs three years later than approved schedule and with a delay of 20 years compared to other countries. About ready-to-run services and the national Commission exercising the state regulation of communications and Informatization, and all mobile operators responded positively.
About this in his article for ZN.UA writes Herman Bogapov. According to him, the question of whether to expect the company’s inflow and outflow of new customers, all answered in an optimistic manner, which of course, nobody will say a negative outcome.
“In many countries it is considered that retaining the number when changing operator is a legal right of the consumer and a sign of healthy competition in the telecommunications market.
