Wilfredo Jordán wrote in Prensa.com: "Telephone Service Operators have to invest $7.7 million. The reference entity will supply $2.5 million (the cost to be shared between Asep and the operators), as well as $1 million in advertising and $200 thousand in other expenses that the National Authority of Public Services (ASEP by its initials in Spanish) will cover. Numeric portability is the right that telephone customers have of changing phone service providers while keeping their land line or mobile phone numbers."
Authorities have put to public debate regulations for number portability.
After all bids were declared void, the terms and conditions for the purchase of equipment and leasing of a data center are being reviewed.
Systor International will be responsible for managing the porting process, which will be funded by operators of frequencies for mobile phones.
Proposals to provide the equipment for the project should now be received by 19 August.
