More than 62% of all customers who decided to change Mobile Operators using Mobile Number Portability have joined Bakcell. Bakcell, The First Mobile Operator and The Leading Mobile Internet Provider of Azerbaijan, is pleased to announce to that everyone is coming to Bakcell and it is the leader in Mobile Number Portability (MNP).

"Bakcell has long been a supporter of the MCHT's initiative to introduce Mobile Number Portability. We expected to be the net winner in terms of "porting in" (migrating to Bakcell) of customers who used to be "trapped" with their old network. Customers have proven us right and the data provided by the MCHT shows that Bakcell provides the best services and products to its customer for the best prices. Taking into consideration the fact that MNP is being offered on the local market for less than a year, we can already say that this is a very good result for us and for the market. We believe that this figure will continue to grow in the future and Bakcell will continue to be a leader of this process", says Mr. Richard Shearer, Bakcell CEO.
Requests of subscribers of other operators who want to port their numbers to Bakcell network are being successfully executed as of February 1, 2014. Subscribers of other mobile operators may apply to Bakcell's Service Centers and BakcellİMs in order to port their numbers.

Customer's using our mobile voice services have grown faster than our competitors during 2014, this is as a result of both new customers joining us and our existing customers remaining loyal. Customers clearly recognize the Bakcell value proposition and the great service we offer" stated Richard Shearer.
