Site of the first telephone exchange in City Mill Lane.
Gibraltar's first telephone exchange was set up in 1886 as a private enterprise and then taken over by the Government of Gibraltar. In the 1970s there were three generations of automatic telephone exchange equipment in use with four and five digit numbers.
The volume of calls grew and a System X digital exchange was installed and was taken over by a privatised telephone operator, Gibtelecom, who also operate a GSM network.
Direct telephone connections between Gibraltar and Spain were severed in 1969, when land communications between both territories were halted by the Spanishdictator, Francisco Franco, and were not restored until 1986.1] - However, Gibraltar kept on experiencing restrictions after that date, which caused problems with its telecommunications system, as a direct result of the Spanish sovereignty claim.
Until 10 February 2007, Spain continued to impose restrictions on Gibraltar's ability to expand and modernise its telecommunications infrastructure. These included a refusal to recognise the Gibraltar's International Direct Dialling (IDD) code (+350) which restricted the expansion of the Gibraltar telephone numbering plan, and the prevention of roaming arrangements for Gibraltar GSMmobile phones in Spa - vice versa. Following the signing of the Córdoba Accord between the Governments of Gibraltar, the United Kingdom and Spain in September 2006, these restrictions were removed with effect from 10 February 2007.
New numbering plan
Since 1 October 2008 telephone numbers for landlines and mobile phones in Gibraltar are eight digits long. Prior to this date, landline numbers consisted of five digits starting with either - 4 - , - 5 - or - 7 - , while mobile phone numbers remain unchanged. Since this date all calls to existing Gibtelecom five digit landline number have to be prefixed with - 200 - , making the numbers eight digits long.2] - 3] -
Thus 52200 becomes 20052200 and when dialled from outside Gibraltar +350 200 52200.
CTS (Gibraltar) Limited, an established alternative telecommunications provider began to offer a landline service prefixed with 216.
