Mobile Number Portability Launch Extended to 27 April 2017
Monday April 24th, 2017

On 17 February 2017, URCA issued its Final Determination (ECS 01/2017), which required service providers, BTC and Aliv, to ensure readiness for the launch of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) by 14 April 2017. At the time, it was anticipated and promised that MNP would be available on all islands where mobile services are available from more than one licensee from 25 April 2017.

URCA is satisfied that all required systems have been installed and implemented, however, final testing of the live process has resulted in the need for a short postponement of the MNP. Over the weekend, the Bahamas Telecommunications Company Limited and BeAliv Limited migrated their automated porting functions to the live production environments and worked closely to progress their final testing. It was at that time that the live testing raised some technical concerns and following consultation with URCA, it has been decided that it would be prudent to complete additional testing to confirm that the new MNP service is stable.
