A representative from China Mobile has told local media that China Mobile has begun to issue the 150 prefixed mobile phone number section in some parts of China.
China Mobile issued the 159 number section last year and 158 number section in February this year, both of which have seen big market demand, so the company now decides to issue the newly approved 150 number section to meet the market demand.
So far, China Mobile has begun to issue the number section in some places in Shandong and Hubei Province. It has reportedly delivered over ten thousand SIM cards with 150 prefixes to its business sites in Qingdao and begun to issue the numbers in Jining and Linyi. For Hubei Province, it has taken a lead in issuing the numbers in Wuhan.
China Mobile says it has no detailed plan as to when to issue the number throughout the rest of the country.
