Dominica’s government approves MNP proposals

Dominica’s government has approved a plan to introduce mobile number portability (MNP), it was disclosed by the Minister of Information, Science, Telecommunications & Technology, Kelver Darroux, quoted by Dominica Vibes News following a cabinet annual budget meeting.

MNP will be implemented as part of wider telecoms legislation reforms being undertaken by all Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority (ECTEL) member states, with Dominica’s Telecommunications Act of 2000 set to be replaced with a modernised Electronic Communications legal framework. As reported by CommsUpdate, last month ECTEL signed a prerequisite protocol for the long-awaited promulgation of the Electronic Communications Bill and a raft of upcoming new regulations in Dominica, Grenada, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Vincent & the Grenadines and Saint Lucia.
