Number Portability Benefits
Number portability would provide an opportunity to the consumers to change the Operator (s), while maintaining the same code and same number, if service provider is unable to offer its customers variety of more competitive services, with better quality and at affordable rates, definitely the targets of an Operator for attracting a huge number of subscribers would remain unmet and consequent loss of a subscriber base to it.
The main benefit of MNP is
freedom of choice and the competition
that it generates. Now subscribers
are free to choose a new mobile
service provider without having
to change to a new number. This
means subscribers can avoid the
inconvenience of having to notify
friends and associates that they
have changed their number.
