If ever the service of number portability between operators MNP will be a significant factor influencing subscriber base, mobile operators have to be extremely careful to treat its subscribers. Alternative scenario — mobile operators have to negotiate among themselves and to worsen the conditions of service at the same time.
The principle of retaining the subscriber number when switching from one operator to another (MNP) in the mobile radiotelephone communication networks operates in Russia since December 1, 2013. According to statistics, during the spring and summer of the current year Russian mobile subscribers were transferred to rooms in average two times more often than in all previous time of the service until March 30, 2016 the average Russian monthly transferred approximately 110,000 rooms, from late March to early August 2016 — an average of 200,000 shifts, gave the statistics of the Ministry of communications.
