New way of dialing
The plan to eliminate domestic long-distance charges in Chile will be completed on Saturday, August 9, when Santiago's Metropolitan Region will be included in this measure.
Fixed-line customers will now be able to dial directly any landline in the country, without using a selected carrier and at the cost of a local phone call.
For that reason, from August 9 you will have to add a 2 to all numbers that belong to the Metropolitan Region. In the other hand, to call from a landline to a cell phone, you must remove the initial 0.
Examples for new calls:
Landline to landline (Santiago): 222641719
Cell phone to landline (Santiago): 0222641719 o +56(2)22641719
Landline to Cell phone: 9 12345678
