Area Code: none Subscriber Number: 5 digits Trunk Prefix: 0 International Prefix: 00
Short codes are of the form 1xx, 10xx or 9xx.
Carrier TSKL has indicated there should be sufficient numbering capacity for several years. The carrier is developing a 6-digit national numbering plan as a contingency, however.
VHF service (Maiana, Marakei and Abaiang) has numbers in 27xxx range. VHF is expected to be replaced by DRCS numbers at which point these numbers will be changed to 3xxxx format.
Analog mobile service (30xxx) is expected to be replaced by GSM (9xxxx). TSKL has suggested 30xxx could be assigned for new Bikenibeu subscriber numbers after analog service is decommissioned, expected some time in 2004.
Audiotext services have 7xxxx format numbers (TSKL indicates these are operated by Reach/Telstra Australia).
Card phone numbers are in the 29xxx range.
Starting in 2004, it is expected that number ranges from 33xxx through 49xxx and 83xxx through 85xxx will be placed into service, with ranges 86xxx through 89xxx planned for assignment to inhabited islands.
