Vietnam is the latest country to provide the choice and convenience of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) to its residents with the rollout of a national solution on November 16, 2018.

The Vietnam Telecommunications Authority (VNTA) selected FPT Information System Corporation (FPT IS) to deploy Vietnam’s first MNP solution using iconectiv’s TruNumber Portability Clearinghouse. FPT worked closely with iconectiv—the authoritative partner of the global communications industry and number portability expert—to deliver the MNP solution, bringing additional convenience and choice to Vietnam’s 120 million-plus mobile subscribers.

MNP allows consumers to retain their phone number when switching mobile service providers. In addition to convenience for subscribers, this increases competition among mobile service providers seeking to retain or increase their subscribers—often resulting in competitive pricing, improved network coverage, enhanced services and improved customer care. It is also an essential element of a service provider’s business case and is key to creating additional revenue per customer.

In addition to Vietnam, number portability solutions from iconectiv and its subsidiaries have been implemented worldwide, including in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Greece, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, Tunisia, U.A.E., and the U.S.

Nguyen Van Khoa, CEO, FPT IS
We appreciate the opportunity to serve the VNTA and the residents of Vietnam, and are working diligently with our partner, iconectiv, the market leader in number portability solutions, to ensure the speedy and seamless, phased rollout in Vietnam.

Richard Jacowleff, President and CEO, iconectiv
This and other recent agreements in Southeast Asia expand iconectiv’s footprint in the region and demonstrate the trust these countries have in our ability to efficiently deliver a quality solution at scale.
