PTA Revises MNP Code of Practices

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has revised MNP code of practices for all cellular companies for implementation of Mobile Number Portability or MNP.

It merits mentioning here that Mobile Number Portability Regulations were passed back in 2005, however, code of practices is revised whenever authority finds it necessary.

Version 9 of code of practices for MNP emphasizes on timely processing of MNP requests due to a fact that MNP requests have increased notably during recent months, particular after November 2009.

According to latest Code of practices, cellular companies are asked to not to engage any unethical marketing, for instance, incentivizing customers with special offers after they have requested for MNP.
