Want to know what prefix your number starts with? Here are all telephone number prefixes in Nigeria – MTN, Glo, Airtel, 9mobile, ntel etc.
Telephone number prefixes are very difficult to understand. Gone are the days when we only have 0803, 0802, 0805 and 0809. Nigeria is so congested that those generic numbers can’t adequately go around the whole populace.
Have you ever tried to unravel the carrier of a particular number? Numbers such as the ones you’d find below are quite disturbing when you need to call a specific carrier using the same network. I’ve listed below all mobile phone number prefixes in Nigeria as of the time of publishing this article… Although, a constant update shall be carried out to include any new number prefix.
Note about number prefixes below:
Nigeria implemented Mobile Number Portability in 2013, so the number prefix cannot be reliably used to determine operator anymore.
The Mobile Number Portability scheme allows you to port from one network to another without changing your mobile number. You can find out more here.
That said, let’s delve right into this article on Naijaknowhow. Check the table below for your mobile number prefixes.
