Gibraltar is introducing number portability between network and service providers for geographic, non-geographic and mobile telephone numbers.
Number portability will enable subscriber of publicly available telephone services (including mobile services) to change their service provider whilst keeping their existing telephone number. Its purpose is to foster consumer choice and effective competition by enabling subscribers to switch between providers without the costs and inconvenience of changing telephone number. It will sit alongside a number of other liberalising measures being introduced in Gibraltar.
Attached is a public consultation paper providing a regulatory framework for number portability in Gibraltar.
