      Beginning January 31, 2021 Ivory Coast is upgrading its telephone numbering plan, going from 8 to 10 digit telephone numbers for both fixed and mobile subscribers. The change was announced last year in June on the country’s telecom authority website (Newsletter de l’ARTCI : 10 juin 2020) and will cover the increasing demand for new mobile telephone numbers, mostly generated by recent advances in mobile technology.

      How do phone numbers change?

      All landlines and mobile phone numbers were prepended 2 digits as follows:

      Operator Phone # type Digits added
      MOOV fixed 21
      MTN fixed 25
      Orange fixed 27
      MOOV mobile 01
      MTN mobile 05
      Orange mobile 07
