LNP a year later shows 8.5 million people switched carriers
Posted: 24-Nov-2004 [Source: FCC]

[FCC reorts more than 8.5 million people have switched carriers and kept their cell phone numbers since the number portability ruling went into effect one year ago.]

Washington, DC -- Since November 24, 2003, more than 8.5 million consumers have taken advantage of wireless LNP. Just under 10 percent of those consumers "cut the cord" and moved a landline number to a wireless phone. In the short period since the introduction of wireless LNP, consumers have ported more than twice as many numbers among wireless carriers as consumers did among landline carriers in the first year that landline LNP was available.

Consumers interested in taking a phone number to a new carrier should go first to the new carrier, and should bring a copy of their current wireless phone bill. According to industry guidelines, ports between wireless carriers should take about two and a half hours. Ports to or from landline carriers likely require several days to complete.
