TT Bureau |  |  12 Nov 2008

Turkey witnessed a rush of 50,000 mobile subscribers opting for switch over to another GSM operator on the first day of implementation of Mobile Number Portability (MNP). In fact 1,000 applications were received within the first few minutes itself.


The country has Turkcell, Avea and Vodafone as leading operators. MNP was introduced in the country on Sunday.


The service providers have already lined up range of offers to attract subscribers from rival networks.


Estimates say that the country will eventually witness 7 million users switching over service providers.


India too is scheduled to have MNP introduced by next year. Indian operators can take a cue from this and can either line up similar offers or enhance their quality of services to retain subscribers.
