RCom users get one month more to port out

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) on Tuesday granted one more month to customers of Reliance Communications (RCom) to port out of the network of the company, which stopped its 2G services last month.

Trai has asked Reliance Communications to keep all the 'unique porting codes' that were supposed to expire on December 31 valid till January 31, 2018.

A unique porting code (UPC) is issued to mobile subscriber when they place request for mobile number portability to transfer their connection on some other network. RCom will also have to issue public notice in newspapers regarding the extension of validity on such codes, and options available to subscribers to port their mobile numbers till January 31.

As per the Trai direction, the company will have to send text messages on the UPC to those subscribers, who have neither opted for the 4G data services of RCom, nor the option to port out.
