Ofcom's number porting plan defeated... for now

Vodafone has won a court case against telecomms regulator Ofcom. The Competition Appeals Tribunal has said that Ofcom must reconsider its decision to introduce a two-hour Mobile Number Portability limit next year. The CAT ruled that insufficient analysis and consultation had taken place, cost estimates were inaccurate and the benefit to customers had not been sufficiently demonstrated. Ofcom says it won't be deterred, although the proposed September 2009 date may now slip. [Sources: Mobile News; CAT pdf document]
