Technical info on Thailand phone numbers
- Thailand phone numbers are regulated by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC).
- Country code:
- The country code for Thailand is +66. To dial a Thai phone number from outside the country, you would need to use this code before the area code and local number.
- Trunk prefix:
- The trunk prefix in Thailand is '0'. It is used when making domestic long-distance calls within the country.
- Area codes:
- Area codes in Thailand are generally one to three digits long, followed by the local phone number. The length of the area code is inversely proportional to the size of the city or province it serves, meaning larger cities have shorter area codes. Some examples of area codes in Thailand include:
- Bangkok: 2
- Chiang Mai: 52
- Phuket: 76
- Pattaya (Chonburi): 38
- Local phone numbers:
- Local phone numbers in Thailand typically have six or seven digits. When combined with the area code, the entire phone number (excluding country code and trunk prefix) usually has nine or ten digits.
- Mobile numbers:
- Mobile numbers in Thailand usually begin with an '8' or '9' and are followed by a series of digits. Mobile numbers have nine digits, excluding the country code and trunk prefix. Some mobile operators and their prefixes are:
- AIS: 81, 89, 91
- DTAC: 84, 94, 96
- TrueMove H: 86, 92, 98
- Special numbers and services: *Contact us directly for emergency service capability on your Thai FlyNumber, additional fee's apply.
- Emergency (Police): 191
- Fire: 199
- Ambulance and rescue: 1669
- Tourist Police: 1155
- International dialing:
- To make an international call from Thailand (not when using a FlyNumber), dial the international access code '001' followed by the destination country code, area code (if any), and the local phone number.
The history behind Thai phone numbers
- Introduction of the telephone system:
- The first telephone line in Thailand was introduced in 1881, connecting the Royal Thai Palace with the Royal Thai Army headquarters. The telephone system gradually expanded in the following decades, initially serving the government and later becoming accessible to the public.
- National numbering plan:
- As the telephone network expanded, a standardized numbering plan was introduced to efficiently organize and route calls within the country. In 1980, the Telephone Organization of Thailand (TOT) was established as a state enterprise to manage and develop the national telecommunication infrastructure.
- Area code assignment:
- To facilitate long-distance calls and organize the phone numbering system, area codes were assigned to different regions of the country. For example, Bangkok, the capital, was assigned the area code '02,' while Chiang Mai, a city in the north, was assigned '053.'
- Transition to digital networks:
- In the late 20th century, Thailand transitioned from analog to digital telephone networks, which allowed for more efficient call routing and better call quality. Mobile phone services were introduced in the 1990s, and the mobile phone market has grown rapidly since then.
- Mobile phone numbers:
- With the rapid growth of mobile phone usage, the numbering plan was expanded to accommodate the increasing number of mobile phone subscribers. Mobile phone numbers in Thailand generally start with the digits '06,' '08,' or '09,' followed by a seven-digit unique subscriber number.
- Expansion of the numbering plan:
- In 2001, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) was established as the regulatory authority for Thailand's telecommunications sector. The NBTC has continued to expand and update the national numbering plan to meet the growing demand for phone numbers, both for landlines and mobile phones.
- Introduction of 10-digit numbers:
- To accommodate the increasing demand for phone numbers, Thailand transitioned from a nine-digit to a ten-digit numbering system in the early 21st century. The change included adding an extra digit to the area code for landlines and the mobile phone prefix.
