Addition of a new digit in current landlines numbers

In 2012 and 2013, land lines were renumbered, with an additional digit 2 prepended.[2] The change was rolled out gradually by area code; first in Santiago (Region Metropolitana) and Arica in late 2012, then throughout all remaining regions between March and July 2013.

Now when calling a landline, area code and an extra 2 are always added at the beginning of the number, or between the area code and number. E.g. a formerly seven digit Santiago number (02) XXX XXXX is now 22XXX XXXX, and a formerly six digit Punta Arenas number (061) YYY YYY is now 612YYY YYY.

IP Telephony

The Undersecretariat of Telecommunications (Subtel) created the possibility of telephone service using Internet as a connection technology.[5] The dialing plan was modified to have a zone and uses the prefix 44, resulting in numbers such as 044XXXXXXXX for members using IP Telephony.
