053 is a new network code that MTN Ghana has introduced.
The current network codes of 024, 025, 054, 055, and 059 are enhanced by this new network code.
Commenting on the new network code, the Chief Sales and Distribution Officer of MTN Ghana, Samuel Addo, said “in this digital age, it is important we ensure that everyone is connected especially, businesses, as well as family and friends in order to bridge the digital divide. The new network code (053) will allow MTN Ghana to connect more people across the country and support businesses to thrive. Customers will also get to enjoy a vast array of services including data packages and mobile financial services”.
All MTN-authorized sales contact points nationwide will provide the new SIM card numbers.
The general population is urged to pay attention to the new network code’s inclusion on the list of MTN codes and to use it going forward.
With this new block of numbers, calling procedures are unchanged.
Customers must dial the appropriate prefix, such as 053, and their personal number in order to make calls or send SMS (053 2000000).
Customers must dial the country code, the appropriate prefix, and their specific number, such as +233 53 2000000, while making international calls.
Customers are also warned that the official MTN Ghana number is still 0244300000, and as a result, they should be on the lookout for con artists who could use the new network code to commit fraud.
MTN is accessible to clients on its digital platforms: Facebook: MTNGhana; WhatsApp: 0554300000 and 0555300000; Twitter @MTNGhana/@AskMTNGhana; and.
