From using 3 figures as its area code, the Exeter area code had switched to using 4 digits. This transition to a longer set of area code was done to provide additional sets of phone numbers for new users and subscribers. The alteration of the Exeter area code was spearheaded by Ofcom (Office of Communication), United Kindom's government office which is in charge of all telecommunications.
The infusion of one digit was done during PhONEday in 1995. The number that was added to the original Exeter area code was the figure “1”. From being area code 392, the Exeter area code was changed into the 1392 area code. This area code arrangement is used by most cities in the UK. This format of area code ranges from 01200 to 01998.
Local numbers that are used together with this type of area code are 5 to 6 figures in length. 5-digit numbers are not as common as their 6-digit contemporaries. Callers must always keep in mind that not all 4 digit area codes have 6 digit long local numbers. Fortunately for Exeter-based companies and businesses, Exeter local numbers only consists of 6 digits.
This new area code would be the numbers that are to be dialed when someone is calling from a different area code. Calling without inputting the 1392 area code through the use of a mobile phone would invalidate the call. A single incorrect key in of a number would not connect the call. Callers must also be reminded that aside from the Exeter area code and Exeter local numbers, the trunk code “0” must also be included. “0” is the initial digit that should be keyed in, followed by the area code and lastly the local numbers.
