Muscat: A new online auctioning system has been implemented for people wanting special phone numbers, the Telecommunications Regulation Authority (TRA) has announced.

The agency issued regulations regarding allocation of the numbers according to the decision No.1/2018 published in the Official Gazette, under which diamond- and golden-class numbers will be allocated through an auction, to increase transparency in the allocation of numbers to users.

The auction will be held through telecommunication companies websites on the Internet. TRA has requested all interested to register in the auction system, and to follow advertisements by the telecommunication companies about setting the date for the first electronic auction on the special numbers.
