Mandated by NTC

As mandated by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), PLDT will upgrade its system for its customers to have eight-digit telephone numbers in an attempt "to address the insufficient number of assignable exchange codes."

This migration will cover customers in Metro Manila and also those in Rizal Province, San Pedro, Laguna, and Bacoor, Cavite, the telco said. 

The process, PLDT noted, will start on October 6, from 12:01 am to 5:00 am.

PLDT subscribers and those calling them will have no difficulty adjusting to this number change. All they have to do is add the number "8" at the start of the existing landline number. So, if your existing number is say 123-4567, then it will become 8123-4567, said PLDT and Smart Public Affairs Head Ramon R. Isberto

Isberto also urged the group's subscribers to spread the news and update their promotional materials such as business cards, websites, and social media.

For callers outside the country, meanwhile, would just have to dial 00 + country code (63) + area code (02) + the eight digits landline number.
