Senegal hopes to implement MNP in October

20 Feb 2014

Senegal’s telecoms regulator, the Autorite de Regulation des Telecommunications et des Postes (ARTP), is conducting a public consultation on the implementation of mobile number portability. In October last year the watchdog announced that it expected MNP to be introduced by end-October 2014. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, the country is home to three cellular operators: market leader Orange, which claimed 58% of Senegal’s 12.72 million mobile users at end-September 2013, plus Sudatel and Tigo, which have around 21% of the market each.
