Mobile Number Protability is here !

Finally , I’ve been waiting for a long time for this. Retaining the same number while enabling us to switch providers , which has been done in Europe and in US for the long time. This is great as now our mobile number can be fixed line. We don’t have to message our friends and call them saying that the number has changed and please update your contact list. I know , I’ve been through that and its annoying
Its a sigh of relieve for me as I can now switch from Maxis to other providers (Thinking of choosing the Yellow Guy – DiGi). Of course I’ll have to do lots of comparasion and I might be losing few feauters such as 3G/HSPDA but for me – the call rates are important. I’ll be changing my provider soon and will blog about in on the whole process. But for now you can download and read the FAQ posted by MALAYSIAN COMMUNICATIONS AND MULTIMEDIA COMMISSION . You can read the press statement by clicking here
So stay tuned folks , I want to blog about the whole procedure and to see how efficent is the whole number protability thingy ! – Kudos to the Malayisan government for implementaing something like this . Things are changing here in the mobile industry. Now one thing to do which is to get my hands on iPhone 3G . I hope sa mobile service provider brings it to Malaysia
