Active Airtel USSD Codes and How To Use Them In Nigeria


Active Airtel USSD CodesAirtel Networks Limited (Airtel Nigeria) is one of Nigeria’s most well-known mobile telecommunications companies. According to the Nigerian Communications Commission’s (NCC) Subscribers Statistics issued on August 30, 2019, Airtel Nigeria has a market share of 26.8% and 46.8 million subscribers. Airtel Africa, the holding company for Bharti Airtel’s activities in 14 African nations, is a member of the corporation.

Econet Nigeria was established in 2001 and was granted a Digital Mobile License (DML) for communication services in Nigeria. On August 5, 2001, it created history by becoming the first telecommunications service provider in Nigeria to start commercial GSM services. As management changed hands in 2004, Vodacom took over the company. Vee Networks took over the company in 2004 and changed its name to Vmobile. Celtel purchased Vmobile in May of 2006. In 2008, another telecoms company, Zain Group, paid nearly $3 billion for all of Celtel International’s shares. Celtel Africa’s operations were renamed from Celtel to Zain as a result of this transaction. Bharti Airtel, the parent company of Airtel Nigeria, completed the $10.7 billion acquisition of Zain Group’s Africa operations in 2010.

The best available communications technology for delivering mobile financial services to low-income users is the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD), sometimes known as USSD. In the developing world, the majority of large-scale mobile financial services employ this USSD as their principal method of communication between users and their mobile payment platform. Of course, Airtel Nigeria, the country’s second-largest telecommunications network, is included.

When it comes to accessing critical financial services like monitoring your credit balance and other Airtel sim services, Airtel USSD codes are crucial. They can also assist in verifying the data balance, the most recent full talk time offer, or the transfer service usage statistics. In fact, these codes can be used to manage practically all Airtel services, with the exception of when you opt to download and use the “My Airtel App,” which is available on both Android and iOS and can be obtained from their respective app stores. We’ll look at all of Airtel’s USSD codes in Nigeria and what they’re used for in this article.
