(PRESS RELEASE) – Saint Lucia’s leading telecommunications provider, Flow, welcomes the implementation of Mobile Number Portability in Saint Lucia, stating that the new feature will be beneficial for all customers.
The Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority (ECTEL) recently announced the availability of local number portability on the island, which will now permit mobile customers to change providers without having to give up the service numbers that their friends, family and business associates would have been familiar with for years. The new feature is expected to go live on Monday, 19th November 2018.
Flow Saint Lucia’s Country Manager, Chris Williams said: “We at Flow welcome local number portability. We know that the ECTEL LNP Working Group – of which we are part – has been working on this diligently for several years now, and we are happy to see it become a reality. Residential and business customers who want to take advantage of the great value offers and deals at Flow can now switch from their current provider and not have to worry about changing their phone number. Mobile Number Portability will give many new customers the freedom to benefit from our reliable, hurricane-proven network and the fastest 4G LTE data speeds on the island. More competition is good for everyone, especially customers!”
Customers who would like to move their service to Flow, customers can do so easily at any retail outlet with photo identification by asking to be “ported” onto the Flow mobile network. The process is FREE.
