Dialing Codes and Mobile Operators in Taiwan

Postby kiepie » Sun Apr 11, 2010 11:37 pm

Hello all,

I'm from South Africa and would like to know if in Taiwan, the mobile operators also have certain codes assigned to them.

I know the international dialing code is +886. But then followed up by that is "988", can that pin point me to a specific mobile operator?

My second question is, beside

KG Telecom
Far East Tones
Taiwan Mobile

Is there any other large mobile operators in Taiwan?

Hi there kiepie,

A couple of years ago (I think) the rules changed in Taiwan where you could keep your number but change provider. So no, I don't think it is possible to identify your provider from the number.

Probably the largest operator is Chong Hua Telecom, which was (or perhaps still is?) the state run teleoms company.

Hope that helps.
