Law on permanent cellphone number, officially signed by President Duterte
Smart and Globe are the major telecommunications provider in the country

Malacañang just announced that President Rodrigo Duterte signed bills into law including the Republic Act 11202, or the Mobile Number Portability Act.

The signed law requires all telecommunications service provider to allow "qualified subscribers" to be able to keep their mobile numbers when they move to another service provider.  However, the law did not specify who are those "qualified subscribers". 

It will also allow mobile providers to have the option to change their subscription plan from postpaid to prepaid or vice-versa. 

The best news here is that keeping our mobile numbers must be FREE, according to the law! President Duterte signed the law last February 08, 2019.

The law's implementing rules and regulations will be crafted by the National Telecommunications Commission, Department of Information and Communications Technology, National Privacy Commission, Philippine Competition Commission and other concerned agencies.
