    The history behind Colombian phone numbers

    The history of Colombian phone numbers can be traced back to the late 19th century, when the first telephone networks were established in major cities like Bogotá and Medellín. At that time, phone numbers were assigned based on the geographical location of the telephone exchange and the individual subscriber's line number.

    In the early 20th century, Colombia's telephone network expanded rapidly as more people began to use the technology. The country's first long-distance telephone line was established in 1909 between Bogotá and Medellín. By the 1920s, the country had a national telephone network that connected major cities and towns.

    In 1951, the government of Colombia established the state-owned telecommunications company, Telecom, to manage the country's phone network. Telecom continued to expand the network throughout the country, and by the 1970s, most Colombians had access to telephone service.

    In the 1990s, the Colombian government began to privatize its telecommunications industry, and in 1994, the country's first private telecom company, Comcel (now Claro), was established. Other private companies soon followed, including Movistar and Tigo.

    Technical info on Colombian phone numbers

    In Colombia, phone numbers are composed of 10 digits, with the first three digits representing the area code. The area code is important to note when making a call from one region to another within the country. For example, the area code for Bogotá is 1, while the area code for Medellín is 4. When making an international call to Colombia, the country code is +57.

    Mobile phone numbers in Colombia begin with a 3, 3-digit operator code and 7-digit subscriber number. It's important to note that some phone numbers in Colombia may require additional digits or codes to make the call.

    Edit / Modify Fly Number

    Feb 14, 2022

    I seem to have made an error in my fly number and it appears I’m a digit short.

    Is it possible to add another digit to the number?

    Is support able to add it in? if so it would be “0” as the last digit.

    NYC phone numbers -Inside scoop

I’ve been outside the city for a while now so […]

    How our aesthetically pleasing PBX grid makes configuring your call flow effortless (and fun)

    You can take any of our local phone numbers and forward the calls to any regular phone number in the world.
