Swansea Area Code

Local phone numbers  >  UK area code phone numbers  >  Swansea Area Code


Area code 0441 which was originally utilized as a Swansea area code is one of the few area codes that were used for mobile phones. After its reassignment, the Swansea area code was given area code 792 as its substitute.


This replacement area code was the one employed by Swansea up until the 16th of April, in the year 1995. It was during this time that PhONEday was put into action. PhONEday was United Kingdom's implemented solution in countering the problem of the declining number phone number supply and rising phone number demands.


During the administering of PhONEday, the number 1 was introduced unto all the current UK area codes. It was to be inserted in the middle of the trunk code 0 and the employed area code. Now, this process of including the number 1 to the current UK area codes inevitably increased their length.


The Swansea area code which was composed of 3-digits was transformed into a 4-figured area code. The introduction of the digit 1 led to the formation of the 1792 area code. After PhONEday, the 1792 area code began to be recognized as the Swansea area code. It is also used in towns and communities that are located in close proximity to Swansea. Bishopston, Clydach, Gorseinon, Gowerton, Mumbles and Ravenhill are some of the areas that are encompassed by the 1792 area code.

This new Swansea area code is a requirement when one outside of Swansea needs to call a contact in that area. It is used in partnership with the Swansea local numbers and the trunk code prefix 0. Swansea local numbers alone are comprised of 6 numerals. When calling from outside the area, one is required to complete dialing this set of numbers, which are represented by the format: (01792) XX XXXX. A single wrong input of the area code of the Swansea local numbers would nullify the call.


The trouble with calling these numbers is not only caused by their length but also because of the randomness of the numbers that are needed to be dialed. This kind of situation will not cause any trouble for customers and patrons that are already familiar with the contact numbers. However, new customers, especially first time callers, would usually end up dialing the wrong numbers.


Dialing the incorrect numbers causes negative effects on both the customers and the companies that were the intended receivers of the call. On the part of the customers, a misdirected call would frustrate them, especially when they urgently need to contact the company for any concerns and questions regarding their products and services. For the company’s part, an incorrectly dialed call would not reach their company. This would become a lost call and would be counted as possible profit loss. The worst case scenario for businesses here is when the customers would be looking for other companies.
