TRC to introduce Number Portability

The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) says it has initiated preliminary steps on implementing Number Portability, which would enable consumers to select service providers without changing their existing mobile numbers.

A Tweet by TRCSL said : 

The relevant option has been a common and widespread facility provided by many service providers overseas.

Measures are being taken to enforce the system for both mobile numbers and fixed lines and the TRCSL said it hopes to hold discussions in this regard with service providers as well.

It added that all details related to the project will likely be revealed to the media by next week.
