Area code information

Kimmo Ketolainen reports the following developments (January 1998):
Kimmo Ketolainen reported (November 1997):
"Finland now has the first 9 digit subscriber lines (in Lapland and in
the capital area)"
"Shortest subscriber line numbers have 5 digits, shortest corporate
switches only 4 digits. Most subscriber line numbers have 7 digits."
"Geographic area codes have two or three signifying numbers
(02 ... 019)"
(including initial 0 trunk digit - DL)
Long-term plans are to drop area codes and establish national subscriber
numbers. However, these will not be standardised at 8 digits as previously
thought, due to the introduction of 9-digit subscriber numbers.
"Finland is ready to adopt European jump codes: 1xx to another European
country, such as 146 to Sweden (+46, in future apparently +346)."
12 October 1996 - national renumbering
A new area code system took effect throughout Finland in October 1996.
Area codes were consolidated in this change.
