“The results of these customer surveys demonstrate once again that Neustar is a trusted and reliable partner with the communications industry, as we provide number portability services that U.S. consumers and businesses depend on 24/7,” said Steve Edwards, Senior Vice President of Carrier Services for Neustar. “Given how critical local number portability is to our customers’ day-to-day success, providing the highest level of service is our number one priority. Every year, we strive to address the valuable feedback we receive through the customer survey in order to continue investing in our operation and satisfying our customers’ evolving needs. We are gratified that our customers recognize the expertise, experience and hard work that ensure that the communications industry and American consumers have the most reliable and effective local number portability service in the world.”Local number portability services have been an essential part of the U.S. communications infrastructure since the beginning of Neustar’s nationwide administration of the NPAC. Consumers have reaped significant benefits from the competition and innovation that result from a high-performing number portability infrastructure. The complexity of the LNP operation – and the large number of service providers it supports – requires an administrator with a proven track record of performance. The service provider feedback is as an important reminder that degradations or lapses in the execution of local number portability carry numerous risks not only to service provider operations, but also to the consumer experience that the U.S. public has come to expect.
