New Mexico Moves To 10-Digit Dialing Sunday Oct. 24

PRC News:

SANTA FE — The state of New Mexico will move to 10-digit dialing for all telephone calls made in-state Sunday, Oct. 24, 2021.

Since April 24, 2021, seven-digit dialing has still been permitted. An automated recording will advise callers that they need to use 10-digit dialing beginning Oct. 24, and seven-digit calls will no longer be completed.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) plans to implement a new, three-digit number, 988, to dial for its National Suicide Prevention Hotline, which will be available beginning July 16, 2022.

The implementation of this number requires 10-digit dialing for all in-state calls. For more information, visit the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission (PRC) website.

The PRC regulates the utilitiestelecommunications, and motor carrier industries to ensure fair and reasonable rates, and to assure reasonable and adequate services to the public as provided by law. The PRC also promotes public safety through the offices of Pipeline Safety Bureau and Transportation Division.
