Singapore :. Phone Numbers

Phone numbers in Singapore

The Singapore telephone numbering plan , also known as the National Numbering Plan , is regulated by the Numbering Management Department of the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), taking over the role from the Telecommunications Authority of Singapore upon its formation in December 1999.

Due to the small physical size of Singapore , there are no area or trunk codes, with the Public Switched Telephone Network, Radio Network and IP Telephony all belonging to one numbering area, and thus comes in the same 8-digit numbering format. Numbers are categorised based on the first digit, thus providing ten possible categories, of which six are currently in use and the remaining four reserved for future usage.

Country Code: 65
International Call Prefix: 00x Calling by default is 001 as landlines are by SingTel, 008 for StarHub and 002 for M1.

History - Until 1985, subscribers of telephone numbers in Singapore were six digits, but in that year, these changed to seven digits. In 1995, the digit '9' was added to mobile phone services, making numbers eight digits, and on 1 March 2003, the digit '6' was added to existing fixed line telephone numbers.

Singapore Calls to and from Malaysia - Calls to and from Malaysia do not require international direct dialling (IDD) codes, a legacy of when Singapore was part of Malaysia until 1965. To call a number in Singapore from Malaysia, a subscriber would dial the area code 02 , instead of the Singapore IDD code +65.

Similarly, until 1995, calls to Malaysia from Singapore were direct, with only the area code and number being required, hence 03 for Kuala Lumpur instead of +60 3, but in that year the Subscriber Trunk Dialling prefix 020 was adopted, owing to the divergence of the two countries' numbering plans.

Numbering have been changed since the liberalization of the telecommunications industry, with new carriers requiring different dialling arrangements system for calls to Malaysia, which require the use of the +60 country code, for example, to call Malaysia using M1, a subscriber would dial 02160 , while making the same call using StarHub, the subscriber would dial 01860 .

Singapore Calls to Indonesian Border Towns - Calls to Batam, Samarinda, Pekanbaru and Tanjung Pinang in Indonesia require only the code 011 , followed by the area code (minus '0') and the subscriber's number, hence to call a number in Batam from Singapore, a subscriber would dial 011 778 xxx xxx, instead of the international code +62 778. Calls to the rest of Indonesia, including those to mobile phones, require international dialling, as do calls made using other carriers in Singapore, such as StarHub and M1.
International Direct Dialling - The default international access code from Singapore is 001 - there are other codes in the 00x range, while VoIP services, like Zone 1511, use prefixes in the 15xx range. For example, to call a number in London using Zone 1511, a subscriber would dial 1511 44 20 xxxx xxxx.

Other international access codes in the 00x range will select various providers. Access codes in the 0xx range (e.g. 018 - StarHub's VoIP services or 019 - SingTel's VoIP services) will indicate a Tier 1 VoIP provider. Access codes like 1xxx (e.g. 1511) are indicative of a Tier 2 VoIP provider.
