New PLDT, Globe landline numbers in Metro Manila take effect today

The migration from the 7 to the 8-digit landline numbers in Metro Manila and nearby areas takes effect today, October 6.

The landline numbers affected are those with the (02) area code.

PLDT subscribers have to add the number 8 before their existing landline numbers. Globe customers have to add 7 while Bayan customers need to add 3.

The migration to the 8-digit format is in compliance with a memorandum from the National Telecommunications Commission, which aims to address the shortage of assignable exchange codes.
