Chile has launched the fixed number portability system. Chilean customers can currently port their fixed numbers in the Arica region. Arica has around 36,000 households with fixed telepho­ny lines. The system will be made available to the Santiago area in March 2012, to be then gradually expanded across the country. Additionally, Chile has rolled out a mobile number portability trial. The pilot will take about one month. The mobile number portability system is scheduled for commercial launch on 16 January 2012, Emol reports. Communications software and services provider Telcordia is managing Chile's number portability system.
