Vodafone India on Thursday announced the launch of National Mobile Number Portability (NMNP) from July 3. With this announcement, the company is aligning with the Government’s mandate to roll-out pan-India Mobile Number Portability services from July 3, 2015.
“MNP service allows the customers to carry their existing number across India and also choose the operator of their choice. Vodafone has benefited from the intra-circle MNP that was rolled out in 2011 and we look forward to a similar response this time,” Vivek Mathur, chief commercial officer, Vodafone India said.
The National Mobile Number Portability service facilitates customers to carry their existing mobile number from one telecom circle to another across India and choose the operator of their choice. NMNP is applicable to all pre-paid and post-paid customers.
Customers looking for the convenience of retaining their existing number at the new location can avail the benefits of National MNP service.
Vodafone India has a pan-India base of over 184 million customers serviced through a network of over 130,000 sites, of which over 35,000 are 3G sites.
