Number Portability Finally Getting Sorted Out

from the is-this-really-a-surprise? dept

Well, it only took half a year, but the FCC is now reporting that wireless number portability appears to be moving along smoothly. Of course, all hell might break loose again when the rest of the country (that is, anywhere that is not one of the top 100 metropolitan regions) starts offering number portability next month – but hopefully the carriers have learned their lesson. There are still some problems with portability, so don’t be completely surprised it things don’t work the way they’re supposed to. However, if you really want to switch, there’s not much reason to wait any more.
