At first, there was 050. Then came 055. We were then given 056 for a more varied choice. Prepare for 052 now that du has announced that they’re launching the new prefix code numbers in the first quarter of 2012.
du will launch a new mobile prefix (052) with the digital hierarchy (9), during the first quarter of 2012. The new prefix code number (052) was granted by the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA). The addition of the (0529) series will open up one million extra lines to duâs new mobile customers.
âWe would like to thank the TRA for granting us the new prefix code number, which is an essential addition for us to face the increasing demand on duâs mobile services. With the addition of (0529), we can continue to expand our active customer base that reached over five million mobile subscriptions,â said Farid Faraidooni, Chief Commercial Officer, du. âThis will add approximately one million new lines, which will support customersâ demand for about six months based our observation of buying trends over the past months. This comes as a result of the high demand on our attractive mobile offers and services which consumed 80% of the existing prefix 055â.
More digital hierarchies under the (052) access code will be opened in the future as need calls to continue to cater to the ever-increasing demand for duâs value for money mobile services.
