New landline phone area codes in Saudi Arabia in May
The Communication and Information Technology Commission plans to change the current 9-digit landline telephone number to 10-digit system by adding the digit 1 to the six geographical zone codes in May and August.
The Riyadh area code will change from 01 into 011 on May 13, according to the CITC.
This change will not include the way of dialing among fixed lines in the same city, which will remain as it is now. However, when dialing from mobiles to fixed lines, the new digit must be added.
