The Ministry of Information and Communications has required network operators to upgrade mobile number portability rates to 80 per cent.
Statistics from the Ministry of Information and Communications showed that the number of successful network transfers since the beginning to the end of the third quarter of this year reached 77.3 per cent.
Among the carriers, Vietnamobile has not been able to raise the successful network transfer rate following the direction of the Ministry of Information and Communications to over 70 per cent. Its current rate is 60 per cent.
The Viet Nam Telecommunications Authority (VNTA) has asked the network operators to continue improving the network transfer process as well as circular amendments guiding the deployment of network switching services on the principle of creating maximum ease for users. — VNS
