11 DIGIT MOBILE NUMBERS FROM 2010

By April 5th, 2009 AT 12:20 AM

11-digit-moibile-number-soonGuys if you think it’s tough to remember 10 digit mobile numbers then get ready for this coming next year you may have to update all your mobile phone numbers, & phone directories.

Department of Telecommunications (DOT) has proposed new 11 digit mobile numbering system from January 2010.

Experts believe that from 2010,  “9” will be prefixed to all existing mobile numbers be it CDMA or GSM while existing fixed line mobile number will remain the same. The TEC (Telecom Engineering Centre, DoT’s technical arm) has recommended the new numbering plan that has been forwarded to the government for the final decision.The telecom department had come up with a 30-year numbering plan in 2003 but the fast growth in the telecom subscriber base has forced the authority to relook into its policy and consider 11-digit numbering system.

However operators quoted the new numbering plan is not going to bring down the network to a halt like what has happened with some foreign operators,despite the change will be in the software side only for existing operators.

Though operators want implementation of 11 digit numbering plan as soon as possible it seems operators are running out of combination of numbers.

A Happy Geek and a Network Research Engineer with a really cool day job…

People, I want your opinion, after mobile phone numbers beginning with 8 and 7, do we really need 11 digit phone numbers? I get freaked out thinking that I will have to manually edit all the mobile phone contacts in my phone-book and prefix 9 before them. This makes no sense. They should have provisioned 11 digit numbers only to/for new connections. Who runs the show?
