What is the network year end freeze period for 2022/2023?
Articles in this section
Some mobile network operators implement a year-end freeze period on the processing of applications for two-way numbers during the holiday season. This means that new applications, program amendments, migrations, and the issuing of short codes and some long numbers are placed on hold, temporarily. You are still able to submit your applications during this time, but processing will only take place once the freeze period has ended.
The table below lists the freeze periods for 2022/2023 as received from the mobile operators. We will continue to update this table as we receive the information from the operators.
