The Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) was established to regulate the operations of utility companies in Jamaica. The role of the OUR as an independent Regulator is often misunderstood, particularly by the largest stakeholder group – the consumers. The OUR was given the charge to roll out a champaign to educate the public about Number Portability and how its works.
Number portability enables you keep your current fixed or mobile telephone number if you decide to change from one service provider to another within Jamaica. So, switching between service providers mean you won’t have to tell your friends, family, colleagues, customers and clients that your number has changed.
