As at 8:00am Sunday July 10, 2011, more than1000 mobile phone subscribers in Ghana have ported. In other words, over 1000 mobile subscribers have switched networks.

Posting on the Mobile Number Portability (MNP) Ghana Facebook page, Mr. Bob Palitz, the MNP Consultant to the National Communications Authority (NCA) writes “At 8 am today, we passed 1,000 total customers ported so far!” He did not give any further details beyond that.

It has been three days since Ghana began implementing MNP, the process that enables mobile phone customers to switch to another network provider and still keep their numbers including the code.

One can however, only port again after 30 days of the initial porting or thereafter.

Curious members of the Facebook page have been asking to know which networks subscribers are switching from and to. One member writes, “we want to know who the biggest losers and winners are.” But that won’t be known for now.

Ghana has six mobile phone operators licensed to do business in the country. These are MTN, Tigo, Vodafone, Airtel, Expresso and Globacom. But Globacom is yet to start operations.
