 Monday, April 16, 2018

Gulf Times --  Ooredoo announced on Sunday that the ‘2018 Special Number Auction’ will take place on Wednesday, April 18, at the Ooredoo Tower in West Bay.


Ooredoo said 30 “easy to remember numbers” will be released to the public for the auction, adding that Ooredoo is expecting “strong demand” for the 2018 special number auction, which will gather a host of VIPs in attendance.


At the event, customers can bid for their favorite numbers, which are often those that start with the same number, have many of the same numbers, or have parallel digits.


Registration for the auction will be from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm, and the auction will begin at 6:00 pm. Interested Ooredoo customers must bring their QID to the registration.


This year, in the interest of fairness, Ooredoo has capped bids at QR750,000 and bids begin at QR30,000.


Once bought, numbers remain under the administrative authority of the Ministry of Transport and Communications and will be returned to Ooredoo after one year.
