Recently, Reliance Jio said in a statement that its current test users are facing huge Interconnect, Mobile Number Portability (MNP) issues. Interconnect is a cost payed by one telecom operator to another for connecting phone calls. “We expect and hope that following commencement of services by Jio, the incumbent operators would fulfil their obligations to provide adequate interconnection and MNP facility. In the spirit of putting the customer first and complete transparency, Jio would report its operator-wise call failure numbers on its website ‘www.jio.com’, on a regular basis,” said the company. What that essentially means is that one can expect call drop issues during the initial days/months of the launch of the new network.
