When making a long-distance call, you can select the telecoms operator you prefer with a long-distance carrier access code. You can also select a specific telecoms operator by making a pre-selection agreement with it. If you have made a pre-selection agreement, the calls you make without dialling a carrier access code are directed to the network of the telecoms operator you have selected.
Long-distance carrier access codes begin with 10 and have 3 to 5 digits.
|016 345 6789||a call without a long-distance carrier access code|
|10X(Y)(Z) 016 345 6789||a call with a long-distance carrier access code [10X(Y)(Z) is the prefix with 3 to 5 digits]|
|90XYZ 016 345 6789||a call with a general carrier access code (XYZ indicates the telecoms operator)|
If you have not made a carrier pre-selection agreement and do not dial a carrier access code, your call will be directed to the network determined by the telecoms operator providing your subscription.
