After locking horns with the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) concerning the commission’s directive to telecom companies to harmonize their three-digit short codes, MTN Uganda has finally given in and is changing its codes effective Sunday, 1st March.
MTN has posted the communication on its social media accounts inform all its customers of the change.
UCC had previoulsy ordered all telecoms to start using *130* as recharge voucher number followed by # to recharge, use *131# to check account balance and 100 for customer assistance.
The directive had to be effective December 1, 2014 but it wasnt the case.
Below is the communication MTN has shared on its Facebook page.
