The phone number was sold for $2 million dollars during an auction organized in Abu Dhabi
777-7777 and the subscription offered by Etisalat, a telecom operator from the Middle East were sold for nearly 7.9 million dirhams (the equivalent of $2 million), writes Business Shop.
The person who paid the incredible amount just to get the phone number is not even the rightful owner of the “interesting-looking” number.
However, given the law from the Emirates, the government of Abu Dhabi technically owns all telephone numbers.
The buyer will, however, benefit for two years from the contract offered by Etisalat, which consists of a Diamond Plus package of 22.500 minutes per month, 22.500 messages and 100 GB of internet traffic.
