AT&T Wireless Explains Porting Delays
Dec 12, 2003, 11:15 AM by (staff)
AT&T Wireless this week responded to the FCC's recent demand that the company explain number portability delays. The company partly blamed its clearinghouse vendor, Nightfire, citing delays and glitches with Nightfire's system that resulted in a backlog of porting requests. AT&T also pointed the finger at TSI, the vendor used by the other five national carriers, claiming that two TSI software upgrades "shut down critical inter-carrier communications testing" in the final four weeks leading up to number portability becoming available. AT&T also claims that TSI violated a previous agreement by rejecting porting requests made outside certain hours of the day.
