Mobile Number Portability in Malaysia

After YEARS of discussing this topic, MNP, by the MCMC. Finally, it will be implemented on 29th August 2008 ( Friday ). It would started for Pre-paid user and followed up by Post-paid user in a couple of weeks. The nationwide launch for the MNP service is in October.

With the MNP implementation, the mobile user no longer 'tight' with their mobile service operator.  You will have the convenient freedom of switching to competing mobile service operators while retaining your respective phone numbers. It means that you can switch any operator from Digi to Maxis or Maxis to Celcom etc. with your phone number e.g. +6016-XXXYYYY remains the same!


There will be a RM25 charge everytime the MNP is used to switch to a new operators.
