New Draft Rules for Implementing Portability Measures for Fixed Base and Cellular Telephone Numbers

The Mexican Department of Communication and Transportation (SCT), through the Federal Telecommunications Commission (COFETEL) submittedto the Federal Regulatory Improvements Commission (COFEMER) a new version of its pre-draft called "Resolution by which the Authority of theFederal Telecommunications Commission Establishes Rules For the Implementation of Portability of (Telephone) Geographic and Non-GeographicNumbers." The numerical portability provisions refer to the possibility that telephone service users may keep their telephone number without takinginto account the Federal Public Telecommunication Services provider, in such a manner to be able to freely change telephone services provider withoutchanging their telephone number. It is expected that within the next several days new rules for implementing the numerical portability measures, and atimetable for implementation through a new draft could possibly take place in November, 2007.
