ULR: Prestel secures numbering plan

Remmy Nweke

EDO State-based Unified License Operator (ULO), Prest Cable & TV Systems Limited (Prestel), has secured a numbering plan from the regulator, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

The numbering plan allocation is to facilitate the roll out plans of Prestel.

Director, Technical Research and Standards at NCC, Dr. Sylvanus Ehikioya made this disclosure in a letter to the management of Prestel at the weekend.

The letter, which copy was made available to ITRealms Online, confirms the payment of N70 million for the allocation of 1 million numbers, which begins with an area code of 07024.

Dr. Ehikioya also said that he was pleased to informed Prestel that its numbering area is national.

The access code and subscriber numbers, he said, would start with 000000 and end at 999999.

NCC, however, warned that the numbering plan is not transferable or re-assigned.

He emphasised that it should be strictly in accordance with the license terms and conditions.

The director also advised that it is renewable annually at the anniversary date, effective from the date of the letter conveying the numbering plan information.

He further urged the telco to comply with the nation’s Communications Act of 2003.
