Amendments will be different for each of Egypt’s three mobile operators:

Etisalat Current 10 digit numbers, which all start 01, will take an extra 1. They will now begin 011 Current 11 digit numbers, which all start 0152, will change the 5 to a 1. They will now begin 0112

Mobinil Current 10 digit numbers, which start 01, will add a 2. They will now begin 012 Current 11 digit numbers, which start 0150, will replace the 5 with a 2. They will begin 0120

Vodafone Current 10 digit numbers, which start 01, will add a 0. They will now start 010 Current 11 digit numbers, which start 0151, will replace 5 with 0. They will start 0101

Mobile operators will have four months to fully comply with the decision, during which time users will be able to call using either the old number or the amended one. Egypt had 76.43 million mobile users as of June, up 30 per cent on the year before, government figures showed on Monday.
