Lately, the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) directed all network service providers to intensify the execution of new harmonized USSD codes which will see all networks use a unified code to carry out services like airtime recharge, balance check, data purchase, etc. What this means in simple terms is that the same code you use in checking your account balance for MTN will still be used to check your balance in Airtel, Glo or 9mobile.
The deadline set for the commencement of this new development was 17 May 2023. And at the time of writing this, the harmonized codes have come to fruition.
So if you are searching for the new harmonized codes, this post is going to provide you with all of them. These codes are used to access different services offered by mobile network operators. They are shortcodes that can be dialled on your mobile phone to instantly activate specific services or functionalities.
Nigeria’s Network service providers
Nigeria is home to several mobile network operators that provide affordable and reliable communication services to both individuals and businesses. These operators include:
1. MTN Nigeria: This is the largest mobile network operator in Nigeria, and it provides voice and data services to over 65 million subscribers. MTN Nigeria is known for its extensive coverage and range of data plans.
2. Airtel Nigeria: Airtel Nigeria is the second largest mobile network operator in Nigeria, with over 50 million subscribers. The network provider offers voice, data, and mobile money services.
3. Globacom Nigeria: Globacom Nigeria is a Nigerian-owned mobile network operator that provides 4G LTE data services to subscribers in Nigeria, as well as in other African countries such as Ghana and the Benin Republic.
4. 9mobile: 9mobile, formerly known as Etisalat Nigeria, is a relatively new entrant into the Nigerian mobile telecommunications market. The network provider offers voice and data services and has been known to provide competitive data rates. All four network providers offer a range of data plans and voice bundles to cater to the needs of their subscribers. However, in recent years, network quality has been a major issue in Nigeria, with subscribers frequently experiencing dropped calls, slow internet speed, and network downtime.
Nonetheless, the Nigerian government has been working to improve the quality of telecommunications services in the country, and efforts have been made to encourage the growth of telecommunications infrastructure within the country. Overall, Nigeria’s mobile network providers continue to play a crucial role in connecting millions of Nigerians to the world.
