We provide different types of USSD codes with various capabilities to meet your messaging needs. There are three types of USSD Codes available to you.

Dedicated Codes

A dedicated USSD code is typically owned by one account. It has only one segment. Eg *714#. You can add as many sub-codes (extensions) as possible. It is more expensive than the other types of USSD codes. To purchase a dedicated code, kindly contact any of our friendly sales personnel for more information at sales@hubtel.com.

Semi-Dedicated Codes 

A semi-dedicated code is dedicated to one account but shared among other accounts. The owner of the semi-dedicated service code can create as many extensions as possible. You can contact any of our friendly sales personnel for more information on acquiring a semi-dedicated code at sales@hubtel.com.

Shared Codes

A shared code is a code that is shared among different users. This option is less expensive and the most preferred one. You can add as many subcode (extensions) as possible. Eg *713*20*xxx#. You can search and buy a shared USSD service code from your Hubtel account. You can request for a shared code directly from your Hubtel Unity account.
