The Nigerian Communication Commission late Tuesday released a list of harmonised shortcodes for mobile networks in the country.
According to the NCC, this development means that users of MTN, Airtel, 9mobile and Glo mobile networks will carry out the services their individual network providers provide with the same short codes. This simply means that all networks will be using the same short codes.
The codes as given by the NCC are 300 to be used as the unified code for call centre/help desk across all mobile networks; 301 for voice mail deposit; 302 for voice mail retrieval; 303 for borrow services; 305 for STOP service; 310 for check balance, and 311 for credit recharge.
Also, the code for data plan across networks is now 312, 321 is for share services, 323 for data plan balance while 996 is the unified code for the verification of Subscriber Identity Module Registration/NIN-SIM Linkage.
