How to identify Ntc Ncell Smart Cell Hello mobile numbers

In Nepal, each of the mobile network operators has their own number range in mobiles. So, it is easy to identify the SIM operator or mobile operator from the number itself. NTA, the regulator has assigned the number range to each of these operators. These operators use the same mobile number range for the new number distribution. This post, we are providing the list of numbers for each of the operators.

Before telling the mobile number range of telecom operators in Nepal, we shall mention the mobile operator code that is unique in the whole world. It includes the Mobile Country Code (MCC) and Mobile Network Code (MNC).

S.N. Operator Technology MCC MNC Operator Code
1 Ntc (Nepal Telecom) GSM 429 01 429-01
2 Ncell GSM 429 02 429-02
3 Ntc CDMA 429 03 429-03
4 Smart Cell GSM 429 04 429-04

All mobile numbers in Nepal start with digit 9 and have 10 digits. The second digit is a technology identifier. 7 is for CDMA and 8 is for GSM family. Smart Cell has the second digit of 6 which is also for GSM.

Mobile Number range

984 is the oldest mobile number range for a SIM which is of Nepal Telecom GSM mobile (2G, 3G, 4G). Then came UTL which had different number range and later update to 972 range. Similarly Ncell was operational with 980 number range. You can also check your mobile number yourself by dialing specific number. Read here for the method.

Here is the number range, technology, and the operator’s name in a Table.

S.N Number Range Technology  Operator Name
 1  984/985/986  GSM Namaste SIM/NTC (Nepal Telecom) GSM
 2  974/975  CDMA Sky SIM / Ntc CDMA
 3  980/981/982  GSM  Ncell
 4  961/962/988  GSM  Smart Cell
 5  972  CDMA  UTL
6 963 GSM Hello mobile / Nepal Satellite Telecom

The number ranges are for the operational SIM card for the different mobile networks in Nepal. NTA has also been planning to bring Mobile number portability in Nepal. For now, it is very easy to identify the SIM card for different mobile networks like Ntc, Ncell, Smart, e.t.c. But we won’t be able to identify the number range and also the technology for the mobile SIM cards once the network portability comes into operation.
