Number portability

COAI Director General T V Ramachandran had said: "Mobile number portability was being introduced to benefit a select operator desirous of entering the GSM segment and thereafter poaching on the subscribers of existing GSM players .
In a major bonanza to over 37.5 million mobile customers, the Department of Telecommunications announced the introduction of 'number portability' in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai.Under this system, subscribers do not have to change their mobile phone number if they shift from one operator to another.The facility will be available to mobile customers by the fourth quarter of 2008.
Finally.... I sure hope they do it much faster than that (only metro cities and till 2008-end).  I need to change my operator who provides pathetic services.  Regarding COAI's allegations, they might be true.  But they have not really taken care of bad network quality, so they cannot complain.  Let them face the heat, they cannot continue to live off the subscribers tied down to them.
