Three-digit phone numbers have become four-digit

The Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad is changing those three digit short phone numbers to four digits to make way for additional companies to supply telephone service. The changes take place today.

For example, the number to report telephone and Internet outages changes from 119 to 1119.

However, the 911 emergency number remains the same. A full list of changes is on the company’s Web site.
