Bulgaria's Vivacom says that over 300,000 customers have ported their mobile phone numbers to its network since the MNP facility was launched.
It noted that is nearly 100,000 more than the total accumulated by its two rival networks. In addition, it is the country's only mobile network with more ported in numbers than clients who left in favor of another operator.
Users were given the opportunity to choose their operator, while retaining their current number, in April 2008. Two years later the procedure for a "one stop shop" was introduced and since August 2010 those who want to port out or port in their numbers have to only fill in an application for the preferred operator.
