MTN Ghana has announced the introduction of a new network code, 053 to complement the existing ones.
The Chief Sales and Distribution Officer of MTN Ghana, Samuel Addo, stated that the new code is aimed at connecting more people and businesses across the country.
The new code will offer customers a wide range of services, including data packages and mobile financial services.
The new SIM card numbers will be available at all MTN-authorized sales points across Ghana.
Customers are advised to be aware of the new code and accept it for their activities.
To make calls or send SMS with the new code, customers are required to add the relevant prefix to the number being dialled, for example, 053 and the customer’s unique number.
For international calls, customers will need to dial the country code, the prefix, and the customer’s unique number.
MTN Ghana however reminds its customers that its official number remains 0244300000 and urged customers to be cautious of fraudsters who may take advantage of the new network code to engage in fraudulent activities.
The already existing codes are 024, 025, 054, 055, and 059.
