Bharti Airtel on Wednesday said it’s ready to launch full mobile number portability (MNP) from Friday, which will allow customers to retain their numbers across the country.
The government has fixed July 3 as the deadline for a national rollout of MNP.
The company said with national MNP, mobile customers across the country can now easily shift between states without having to change their mobile number.
In a statement, Airtel said its customers can enjoy special offers like processing requests for porting within Airtel’s network within 24 hours and free incoming on roaming until the portability request is processed.
The users can also avail the option of transferring their balance in pre-paid or carrying forward their unbilled/billed amount in the case of postpaid while porting their number to the new city, it added.
“With our complete readiness to launch national mobile number portability, we aim to empower customers enabling them to retain this identity as they move across anywhere in the country. To facilitate a seamless transition, we will also allow our customers to enjoy free incoming on roaming while their number portability request is being processed,” Bharti Airtel Director (Market Operations) Ajai Puri said.
The process for full MNP is the same as intra-city mobile number portability.
