TATT: Number portability delayed to July

The Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) wishes to advise consumers that mobile to mobile number portability (MNP) was not commercially launched on March 31st, 2016, as previously announced.

Telecommunications services operators are undertaking rigorous inter-operator tests, which are still in progress.

All operators are working assiduously, together with TATT, to complete these tests in order to guarantee the type of consumer experience that will deliver the full benefits of MNP from the launch of the service.

It is anticipated that MNP will be launched by July 1st 2016 and TATT has been assured by the operators that these activities will not affect the September 2016 launch of fixed number portability.

TATT shall continue to keep the public informed of the progress of MNP over the coming weeks.
