Study of the mobile number portability (MNP) implementations in Belarus and Georgia



Mobile number portability (MNP) is considered an important condition for ensuring full competition in the electronic communications sector, allowing mobile subscribers to change their service providers any time without altering their phone numbers. Mandated in the European Union since 2003, experience of MNP implementations across the EU member states has been largely successful. On the contrary, introduction of MNP in the post-Soviet region has been rather slow, where Belarus and Georgia pioneered with implementation. After the collection of primary data among relevant stakeholder groups and the subsequent analysis thereof, the given paper provides key revealed findings and lessons learnt from MNP implementations in those two countries, as well as an overview of any impact the MNP service availability has had on the Georgian and Belarusian electronic communications markets
