    The history behind Greek phone numbers

    • Before the 1990s:
    • Prior to the 1990s, the Greek telephone system was primarily operated by the Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE), which was responsible for assigning and managing phone numbers. At this time, local phone numbers were typically comprised of six digits, while area codes had two to three digits.
    • 1993 - National Numbering Plan:
    • In 1993, Greece introduced the National Numbering Plan, which standardized the country's telephone numbering system. Under this plan, area codes were lengthened to three digits, while local phone numbers were extended to seven digits, resulting in a ten-digit telephone number format.
    • 2001 - Number portability:
    • In 2001, Greece implemented number portability, allowing customers to retain their phone numbers when switching between telecommunications providers. This reform increased competition in the telecommunications market and improved consumer choice.
    • 2002 - New area codes:
    • In 2002, Greece introduced new area codes in response to growing demand for phone numbers. The new codes allowed for the expansion of the telecommunications network, providing more phone numbers to meet the needs of Greece's rapidly growing population and economy.
    • 2010s - Mobile phone numbers:
    • The widespread adoption of mobile phones in the 21st century led to a significant increase in the number of mobile phone numbers in Greece. Mobile phone numbers typically start with the digit '6' and are followed by nine additional digits. In addition to mobile numbers, there are also separate numbering ranges for landlines, toll-free numbers, and premium-rate services.

    Need a phone number in Bulgaria

    Jun 13, 2016

    Hello, I need a number in Bulgaria. My company is based in Blagoevgrad, though, and I see that you don’t provide Blagoevgrad numbers. Would it be OK if I purchased a Sofia number, although my company is based in Blagoevgrad?
    And would I still be able to forward calls to other countries, ie Greece, for the rates I saw on your website?

    Best regards,
    Manos K

    Two questions about international local numbers

    Apr 02, 2015

    First, when I’m looking at the per-country rate tables, I see that there are in some cases a number of different rates depending on the prefix. Does the rate depend on the prefix of the number you are calling, or on the prefix of the FlyNumber you are calling it from?

    Second, I understand that a number of countries do not allow people to have local telephone numbers unless they are legal residents of the country. Is there some place where national or regional regulations that might limit the ability of a non-resident to get a local FlyNumber are tabulated?

    NYC phone numbers -Inside scoop

    Nov 01, 2022

    So I thought it would be a neat idea to write a little about popular area codes -their history, availability, technical aspects, and perhaps the occasional pop culture reference.  Given that we started in NYC, it only makes sense to start with the big apple. 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)
