Airtel Nigeria | The Smartphone Network


The Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) has mandated the deployment of the Mobile Number Portability Scheme across the Nigerian telecommunications sector. This scheme launches on the 22nd of April, 2013.


The Mobile Number Portability, popularly known as ‘MNP’, is the ability of a cellular mobile service user to change his/her subscription to another cellular network operator, while retaining his/her original directory number (MSISDN), including the Network Dialling Code/Operator Prefix.


In this scheme, GSM customers would only be able to port within GSM operators and CDMA customers would only be able to port within CDMA networks.



Benefits of the MNP Scheme

  • Number Retention - Number is your identity (Social and commercial). Retained when switching networks.
  • All Network option – All networks are available to you to experience.
  • Better overall service delivery in the industry - Telcos will provide better service - coverage, quality, tariff and product range.
  • Cost free porting – No porting charges.
