New dialling codes for SA in the pipeline

 

The Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa) has released draft

numbering plan regulations that could result in South Africans having to learn

a raft of new dialling codes if fully implemented. Landline codes could change

from, for example, 011 (for Johannesburg) or 021 (for Cape Town), to 611 or

621. And mobile numbers could change from, for example, 082 (historically

Vodacom) or 084 (historically Cell C), to 882 or 884. The move is being

considered to free up more numbers and to create more transparency about

what numbers represent. Though Icasa has not set a time-frame for

implementation of the proposed changes, the new numbering scheme could

be implemented as soon as two years from now, according to an explanations

document that accompanies the draft regulations.
