Local Number Portability

Abbreviated as LNP, Local Number Portability is a service that allows subscribers to switch local or wireless carriers and still retain the same telephone number. LNP is managed through the Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC). It is expected that in the future, subscribers may also be able to change geographical locations and maintain the same number as well.
