Telecom operator Tigo appears to be the most preferred network for phone users who want to port.
The latest report from the National Communications Authority (NCA) indicates that Tigo in the past year has recorded the highest number of phone users porting to its network.
Tigo has in the past year also recorded a net gain of about 250,000 subscribers, out of the total number of 838,200 ported.
This year marks three years since the introduction of Mobile Number Portability (MNP) in Ghana.
It is considered the most successful in the sub-region and one of the best globally.
Vodafone in the past year recorded the second highest net gain in numbers ported.
It recorded a net gain of about 228,000 subscribers.
Apart from Tigo and Vodafone, the rest of the telcos recorded net losses in the numbers ported.
MTN was the biggest loser after recording a net loss of about 402,000 subscribers, while Airtel recorded a net loss of about 59,000.
Glo had a net loss of about 16,000 while Expresso lost some 858 subscribers.
By the end of the third year of operation, about 1.65 million porting requests had been successfully completed since its launch in July 2011.
In the third year, a total of about 838,000 subscribers successfully ported representing an 87% increase over the second year.
The total number of completed ports from launch until 30th June 2014 is approximately 6% of the total active mobile numbers in Ghana.
The report also indicates the speed of processing porting requests has increased significantly.
In June 2014, the average time to complete the porting process after request submission was four minutes, sixteen seconds.
Ninety one percent were completed in 5 minutes or less and 67% were completed in 2 minutes or less.
