The history behind New Zealand phone numbers

  • Introduction of the telephone (late 19th century):
  • Telephones were first introduced to New Zealand in the late 19th century. Initially, these devices were connected through manual switchboards operated by human operators.
  • Introduction of area codes (1958):
  • As the telephone network expanded, New Zealand introduced a system of area codes in 1958. These codes were assigned based on geographical regions, with the North Island receiving codes starting with 0, while the South Island had codes starting with 9. This allowed for more efficient routing of calls and made long-distance calling more manageable.
  • Transition to automatic exchanges (1960s):
  • In the 1960s, New Zealand started replacing manual switchboards with automatic exchanges, removing the need for human operators. This also led to the introduction of direct dialing for long-distance calls.
  • Introduction of seven-digit numbering (1988):
  • In response to growing demand, New Zealand increased the length of its local phone numbers from six to seven digits in 1988. This change allowed for a greater number of available phone numbers within each area code.
  • Deregulation and competition (1990s):
  • The telecommunications market in New Zealand was deregulated in the 1990s, leading to increased competition among providers. This period saw the introduction of new services, such as mobile phones and Internet access, which contributed to further growth in phone numbers.
  • Introduction of mobile phone numbers (1990s):
  • Mobile phones emerged in the 1990s, and New Zealand introduced a separate set of prefixes for mobile numbers. These prefixes usually start with 02, followed by a digit indicating the carrier (e.g., 021 for Vodafone).
  • Introduction of non-geographic numbers (2000s):
  • To accommodate the increasing number of services and providers, New Zealand introduced non-geographic numbers in the 2000s. These numbers do not follow the traditional area code structure and are used for services like toll-free numbers (starting with 0800) and premium rate numbers (starting with 0900).
  • Number portability (2007):
  • In 2007, New Zealand introduced number portability, allowing customers to keep their existing phone numbers when switching between landline or mobile service providers. This change made it easier for consumers to switch providers and increased competition in the market.
