The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has extended training and technical support to TRCSL for the successful implementation of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) in Sri Lanka.

According to a press statement issued on Friday, Sri Lankan Regulator has planned to introduce MNP for mobile users in their country and intends to follow processes adopted by PTA.

MNP is a service through which a cell phone user can change his network without changing the number. Pakistan was the first country in South Asia to introduce this facility for its mobile users in 2007.
