ICT Decision 2005-1, Interim Decision and Further Process for Local Number PortabilityIn ICT Decision 2005-1, Interim Decision and Further Process for Local Number Portability, released 29 March 2005, the Authority determined that there were significant benefits to LNP and that it would be appropriate to further examine the likely implementation costs of LNP in the Cayman Islands. Accordingly, the Authority established a Local Number Portability Consortium (LNPC), consisting of the Authority and major ICT network licensees, to identify the most appropriate LNP model for the Cayman Islands and to investigate its costs.
Initially, the LNPC examined the models in place in a wide variety of jurisdictions around the globe. The LNPC then approached a number of vendors and requested proposals for the implementation of LNP in Cayman. Based on these discussions, the LNPC recommended to the Authority a model involving an electronic query of all calls. In this consultation document, the Authority seeks comments on whether LNP remains a desirable option for the Cayman Islands in light of the likely costs to subscribers.
