+998 became effective after 1 October 1998 (from some areas, the effective date was 1 January 1999). Permissive dialling was in effect with either +7 or +998 until 31 December 1998, 1 January 1999, 1 March 1999 or 1 June 1999, depending on the source of information (or depending on timetables of individual communications carriers).
In most cases, old Uzbekistan numbers of +7 3xx format became +998 xx (except Naval/Navoi, which changed from +7 436 to +998 79).
6-digit subscriber numbers in Tashkent (+7 371 changed to +998 71) were converted to 7-digit numbers by adding the digit '2' beforehand. 7-digit Tashkent subscriber numbers were kept as is.
Area Codes prior to the introduction of country code +998 were 3-5 digits, with 5- to 7- digit subscriber numbers.
Numbering was formerly consistent with the ex-USSR system, where sum of Area Code plus Subscriber Number tended to be 10 digits.
