No - You will NOT be able to port your fixed or landline phone at this time. Fixed number portability will be launched at a later date once alternative fixed services are available in each ECTEL island.
You will be able to use the ECTEL MNP service from the Monday 03 June 2019. The Mobile Number Portability service is available to all mobile subscribers within in all ECTEL countries (Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia and St Vincent & the Grenadines).
Porting is the term used by the operators (or service provider) to describe the process which moves your number from one operator to another.
Mobile Number Portability (MNP) means you can keep your current mobile (or cellular) telephone number if you decide to change from one service provider (or operator) to another within an ECTEL region country (Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia and St Vincent & the Grenadines). In short, it’s a process that allows you to change service providers without having to change your telephone number. So, switching between service providers won’t mean having to go to the trouble of advising all your friends, family, colleagues, customers and clients that your number has changed – it stays the same.
If you have any questions or experience any problems with your porting request then you should refer these to your new service provider who will be pleased to assist.
If you feel that either service provider has breached the terms of the mobile number portability service then you can file a complaint with your local NTRC office.
The NTRC and ECTEL has published information on number portability on their websites at Mobile Number Portability.
