WLNP Delays Rumored

There is so much commotion being generated inside the DC Beltway as we approach the November deadline for Wireless Local Number Portability, that it is difficult to ascertain what is actually going on.RCR news reports on a rumor that the senate will review an amendment to the WLNP requirement, forcing a delay. However, RCR was unable to uncover whether any senators were actually planning to introduce said topic. Consumers Union released a statement against a delay just on the rumor that one might be introduced. This is fairly consistent with what Techdirt predicted in May: that there would be much saber-rattling, but that the deadline would not change, carriers would be late, fines imposed, and then grudging compliance. I still stand by that prediction.
