CNMC proposes new local area codes for 6 Spanish provinces

Tuesday 10 July 2018 | 09:47 CET | News
Spain's communications regulator CNMC has proposed introducing new fixed line local area codes in 6 of the country's provinces in which prefixes are fast running out. The watchdog said it's asked the Secretary of State for the Information Society and Digital Agenda (SESIAD) to assign new codes for the provinces of Malaga, Alicante, Castellon, Gipuzkoa, Badajoz and Burgos, where occupation ranges from 89 percent to 92 percent and where there is a risk of exhausting the available numbers in the short or medium term.
