Callers get 10-digit dialling reprieve

April 2002 News

Mandatory 10-digit dialling was to be introduced in a matter of days from now, but the Independent Communications Authority of SA (ICASA) has granted Telkom users a six-month reprieve.

"The authority has accepted views that certain computer controlled systems, in particular security alarm systems, might not have sufficient time to adjust to the new dialling system within the set timeframes," it said in a statement.

This is good news for those relying on automated dialling devices to report alarms for processing or otherwise. But do not forget to re-configure or replace the necessary before November 2002.
