Nigerian Phone Number Prefixes

The growing number of mobile phone users in Nigeria has greatly expanded the country's GSM and CDMA phone number prefixes. As Nigeria's mobile telecommunication operators expand their subscriber bases through acquisition of more number series, many Nigerians find it difficult to identify mobile operators by their phone numbers.

We have compiled a list to help you identify these telecom operators by their phone numbers.
