Telecom changes 200,000 telephone numbers in Bratislava

On November 1, more than 200,000 Bratislava telephone numbers of fixed telephone lines, which makes 80% of all telephones in Bratislava, were re-numbered. By this step, the share of all re-numbered telephone numbers in Bratislava will reach 93%. The remaining seven percent will be changed during the first half of 1999, said Jaroslav Mydliar from the state-owned Slovenske Telekomunikacie (ST - Slovak Telecom) at a press conference on October 30.

Telephone numbers starting with 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 36, 38 and 39 were an exception, because these telephone lines are connected to exchanges where it was impossible to make the needed changes by November 1.

Mydliar said preparation for the renumbering started two years ago, and total costs will exceed 10 million Sk. All new numbers will have nine digits, and only the prefixes will change. The Slovak Telecom project is intended to bring the Slovak telecommunications system in line with European standards.

Gradually, by the year 2002, all identification numbers of fixed telephone lines in Slovakia will be renumbered. All numbers will have nine digits, while direction numbers of individual towns and regions will have two digits. Only the Slovak capital, Bratislava, will have a one-digit direction number.

For the last quarter of 1998, Slovak Telecom introduced a 50% discount on the price for having a fixed telephone line installed. Simultaneously, it introduced some new supplementary services. During Christmas, there will be discounts on all international calls.
