Airtel Nigeria on Friday declared that it had added 0904 number series to its numbering range, following the approval of the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).
The Chief Commercial Office, Dinesh Balsingh in a statement said the new number series, which brings its growing numbering range scheme to nine, would give opportunity for more Nigerians to join the network with the widest 4G coverage.
“Aside the 0904 number range, Airtel currently has the following numbering series: 0802, 0808, 0708, 0812, 0701, 0902, 0907 and 0901.
“The expansion to accommodate more telecoms customers is an affirmation to the fact that Airtel is the network of first choice for many Nigerians.
“Airtel expresses its profound appreciation to all our customers and to new customers who have demonstrated by their actions that Airtel is not just an innovative and reliable network but a network with compelling value offerings.
“We assure our customers that we will not rest on our laurels as we create more unique and customized propositions that will empower them to realize their dreams as well as succeed in their personal and professional endeavours,” he said.
The airtel 0904 number range is the latest series to its number range, following the 0901 series released in March, 2019.
The “090” prefix is common to all four operators.
- MTN – 0903, 0906
- Airtel – 0901, 0902, 0904, 0904
- 9mobile – 0908, 0909
- Globacom – 0905
Airtel Nigeria has the most network prefix (4). Although, with the launch of mobile number portability in 2013, which allows subscribers to retain their numbers while switching to a different network, network prefixes hasn’t been reliable in the identification of an operator.
Aside the 0904 prefix, Airtel Nigeria has five other network prefixes, two of which are in the 070 range (0701, 0708).
The other three are in the 080 range (0802, 0808) and 081 range (0812).
