28 February 2004 - expansion to 7-digit national numbers

Existing 6-digit subscriber numbers in Gambia were expanded to 7-digit numbers in February 2004, depending on the service or location.

'4' will be prepended to numbers in the 2xxxxx, 3xxxxx, 4xxxxx ranges.

'5' will be prepended to numbers in the 5xxxxx, 6xxxxx, 7xxxxx ranges.

'9' will be prepended to Gamcel mobile numbers (e.g. 9xxxxx).

'7' was prepended to Africell mobile subscriber numbers (e.g. 7xxxxx became 77xxxxx). It was initially unclear whether '4' would be prepended, given that this digit prepended wireline/fixed numbers in the former 7xxxxx range.

It was unclear whether '4' or '5' will be prepended to Internet Service dial-up numbers.

January 2002 - new ranges introduced
