In furtherance of its efforts to promote competition, improve quality of service and ensure that consumers continue to enjoy good experience on the mobile networks, the NCC launched mobile number portability (MNP) service for GSM subscribers in April 2013. The MNP enables consumers to switch networks without losing their cellular phone numbers.

For effective implementation of the scheme, the Commission issued a license to a consortium of three companies (Interconnect Limited, Saab Grinteck and Telecordia) in January 2012 to act as the Number Portability Clearing House (NPCH) for the industry.
