Every database contains bad data, in the form of invalid numbers, duplicate contacts, and landline numbers. This situation is aggravated by Mobile portability issues where it becomes impossible to be 100% sure by looking at a number which operator is supporting it. Sorting through an endless database of thousands or millions of mobile numbers seems to be a herculean task. Luckily, the Bank of Telecom® HLR Look Up service is here to clean your database of bad data!

This is How HLR Look Up Works
HLR database contains information about all cell phone subscribers who have access to the GSM network and gets updated each time a mobile operator activates a new number. These numbers are kept in the database as long as they are being used by subscribers. The number that is no longer used gets automatically deleted from the database. Such checks are performed in a non-invasive way so that the subscribers won’t see anything on their phones
