Bell and Suntel number changes
Lanka Bell and Suntel numbers were changed from Friday in order
to keep on par with the 10-digit telephone number system introduced
by the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission.
the code number of Lanka Bell, which was 075 earlier, has been changed
to 5. Lanka Bell subscribers have to include only the digit 5 in
front of the existing number if they dial within the same subscriber
area. If they need to dial a different area code from theirs, they
have to add the particular SLT area code followed by the digit 5
and the existing phone number.
to Suntel, the area code 074 changes to the digit 4. The subscribers
have to follow a similar method as above where they have to dial
only the digit 4 in front when they dial a number within the same
subscriber area. If it is a different area code they have to use
the SLT area code of the respective area in front followed by the
digit 4 and the existing number.
