Definition Edit

The wireless local number portability (Wireless LNP) is

a wireless consumer's ability to change service providers within the same local area and still keep the same phone number.

Overview Edit

Wireless LNP allows consumers to switch from one wireless carrier to another within the same general metropolitan area. It does not allow consumers to keep the same phone number when moving to a new town or city. Wireless LNP also allows consumers to move a phone number from a wireline phone to a wireless phone in some cases.
