    Number Portability Arrives for Costa Rican Cellular UsersThe Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Superintendency of Telecommunications of Costa Rica (Sutel) today announced that starting next Saturday they will enable “number portability”, where users can change mobile operators and retain the same phone number.

    “This is a milestone in the history of telecommunications in the country. Sutel fulfilled its commitment to enforce the user’s right to own your phone number,” said the President of the Council of Sutel, Maryleana Mendez .

    Number portability is free to users, who will have the opportunity to change operators up to five times a year, said the Sutel.

    The Court rejected an appeal last April when ICE argued that number portability seriously affect finances and that in the bidding process there were irregularities.

    ICE held the monopoly of telecommunications in Costa Rica for over 60 years until 2011 when the market was opened to private competition. (EFE)
