Mobile nos starting with ‘7′, soon!

Mobile users across the country would soon see yet another series of mobile numbers, possibly as early as February 2010. While the Department Of Telecommunication (DoT) has issued all almost all numbers starting with ‘9’ and ‘8’, the new numbers would start with ‘7’. You may recall that TELECOM TALK was the 1st to announce ‘8’ series mobile numbers (MOBILE NOS STARTING WITH ‘8?, SOON) on 15 August 2009, which was introduced less than a month later on 9 September 2009 – MOBILE NUMBERS STARTING WITH “8? LAUNCHED!

All ‘9x’ levels ranging from 90 / 91 / 95 / 96 / 97 / 98 / 99 have been allotted to various operators (and levels 92 / 93 / 94 reserved for Tata Indicom/ Reliance Mobile/BSNL respectively) while among the ‘8x’ levels only some series (80/81/88/89) could be alotted to mobile operators due to several series already being in use for STD codes.Here’s a look at the 1st series of ‘7x’ series which would soon be rolled out:
