    The history behind Malaysian phone numbers

    The history of Malaysia phone numbers dates back to the early 1900s, when the country was still under British colonial rule. The first telephone exchange in Malaysia was established in Kuala Lumpur in 1902, which connected around 50 subscribers.

    Over the years, the telecommunications industry in Malaysia underwent significant changes and modernizations. In 1954, the first automatic telephone exchange was introduced in Kuala Lumpur, which enabled direct dialing for long-distance calls.

    In 1963, Malaysia gained independence from the British Empire, and the country's telecommunications industry was nationalized under the Telecommunications Department of Malaysia (Jabatan Telekom Malaysia).

    In the 1980s, Malaysia began to liberalize its telecommunications industry, allowing private companies to enter the market. In 1985, the government established Telekom Malaysia Berhad as a government-linked company to manage the telecommunications infrastructure and services.

    In the 1990s, the government further liberalized the industry by issuing licenses for mobile phone services. The first mobile phone network in Malaysia, called Maxis, was launched in 1995.

    In 1999, the National Numbering Plan was introduced, which standardized the format of telephone numbers across Malaysia. The country's phone numbers now consist of a country code (+60), an area code (one to three digits), and a subscriber number (six to eight digits).

    Technical info on Malaysian phone numbers

    Malaysian phone numbers consist of a combination of digits that vary in length depending on the type of number. A typical Malaysian mobile number has 10 digits and begins with either "01" or "011," followed by a seven-digit subscriber number. The prefix "01" is used for major mobile operators such as Maxis, Celcom, Digi, and U Mobile, while the prefix "011" is used for virtual network operators.

    Meanwhile, landline numbers in Malaysia have a slightly different format. They consist of nine digits, including a two-digit area code that denotes the geographical location of the telephone line. For instance, the area code for Kuala Lumpur is "03," while the code for Penang is "04." The remaining seven digits represent the subscriber number.

    How to forward calls to different mobile numbers on weekdays/weekends?

    Dec 30, 2015

    My business is in Thailand.

    During the week I am in Malaysia.

    At the weekend, I am in Thailand

    My customers need to call to a Thai number, so I’ll sign up with a Thai virtual number

    Is it then possible to easily switch the call-forwarding settings on my account so that I can forward inbound calls to my Thai mobile number at weekends and forward them to my Malaysian mobile number during the week?

    NYC phone numbers -Inside scoop

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