Do you still wonder if the number you are about to call is Emtel or Orange before you press on the green button? Well, I still do… so, I decided to look for a way to solve my problem and I found an ICTA document online which I am going to share with you 🙂

Before I get on the phone numbers, I was quite surprised to see that Mauritius had numbers for Pager Devices.

Orange mobile numbers can start with the following:

525x xxxx 570x xxxx, 575x xxxx, 576x xxxx, 577x xxxx, 578x xxxx, 579x xxxx 5820 xxxx 591x xxxx, 592x xxxx, 594x xxxx

Emtel mobile numbers can start with the following:

5421 xxxx, 5422 xxxx, 5423 xxxx, 5428 xxxx, 5429 xxxx, 549x xxxx 5473 xxxx 571x xxxx, 572x xxxx, 573x xxxx, 574x xxxx 584x xxxx 593x xxxx, 597x xxxxx, 598x xxxxx

MTML mobile numbers can start with the following:

529x xxxx 586x xxxx 5890x xxxx 595x xxxx, 596x xxxx

Pager services can start with the following:

218 9xxx, 219 xxxx, 22x xxxx
