Abstract:
The mobile numbers portability (MNP) regulation exists for two decade. His regulation has been object of multiple studies in economy. These studies are mainly focused on his costs. Whereas these costs are function too the technical solutions utilized. This article focuses on the regulation of PNM in terms of the choice of ONS or IN technical solutions in mobile markets that do not practice PNM but have reached maturity in terms of density as in some countries of West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU). In order to reach our results we use Bertrand’s model in duopoly context where each operator formulates that the conjectural variations of his rival are null in a static game with one round. Our results show that in such markets the implementation of MNP by sectoral regulation authorities must pass by the choice of IN technical solution to the detriment of ONS technical solution. And more, they must opt for symmetric regulation in terms of technical solutions choice.
