Jamaica Introduces New Area Code 658 alongside 876

Jamaica Introduces New Area Code 658 alongside 876

Jamaica is planning to introduce a new area code, 658, alongside the existing 876 code. The Office of Utilities Regulation (OUR) has assigned a block of 10,000 telephone numbers under the new area code. Telecommunications provider Cable and Wireless, known as FLOW locally, has requested and received the 658 number block. The company is preparing to implement the new area code for mobile numbers. Currently, the 658 code is exclusively for mobile numbers, but it may be assigned to fixed numbers in the future. The OUR implemented mandatory 10-digit dialing in March 2019 in preparation for the new area code. The 658 code was introduced in May 2018 to supplement the available numbers under the existing 876 area code.
