PTA helps Sri Lanka with mobile number portability


The Pakis­tan Telecommunication Au­­thority (PTA) has extended training and technical support to the Telecom­mu­nica­tions Regulatory Commis­sion of Sri Lanka for successful implementation of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) in the country.

The Sri Lankan regulator has planned to introduce MNP for mobile phone users in the country and intends to follow processes adopted by the PTA.

Pakistan is the first country in South Asia to have introduced this facility for its mobile phone users in 2007.
