    Ofcom is considering the implementation of number portability in the context
    of the development of Next Generation Networks ("NGNs") in the UK and in
    relation to mobile networks. BT has announced its 21CN plans, which set out
    to replace progressively its core network with an architecture based on NGN
    technology. Many other network operators are either planning or have begun
    implementation of networks based on NGN designs.

    Ofcom is also using the opportunity of this consultation to consider and
    review the issue of mobile port lead times. Ofcom is considering whether the
    current industry agreed five day process should be reduced to a shorter
    period. In Ofcom's view the shorter the process, the better it is for
    competition and consumers. Therefore Ofcom is proposing to reduce mobile
    port lead times to a period of less than one working day. However, if Ofcom
    receives evidence that shows that the costs involved in moving to a lead
    time shorter than one working day outweigh the benefits then Ofcom will need
    to consider whether a three working day period is more appropriate in light
    of the evidence received. It would currently appear that the current mobile
    porting process can be reduced to three working days without the mobile
    operators incurring significant costs.
