Smart Communications Inc. asked the National Telecommunications Commission to look into the alleged delayed implementation of mobile number portability by Globe Telecom’s GOMO.

“Even the president of the Philippines cannot stop the law from being implemented. How then can a unilateral act of one covered by the law, delay implementation?” Smart regulatory affairs’ manager Kenneth Regañon said in a letter to NTC commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba.

Smart referenced a Globe advisory sent to its customers a day before MNP’s launch saying, MNP for GOMO would not be available on Sept. 30, the start of the law’s implementation.

GOMO is described in its SIM terms and conditions as a mobile service provider running on Globe’s network.

Under Republic Act No. 11202, all MSPs are obligated to provide nationwide mobile number portability (or MNPs to all qualified subscribers.
