0116 280 Dialing Code

Leicester

Dialing Code 0116 280 is part of Area Code 0116, which covers Leicester and the surrounding area.

The majority of numbers in the 0116 Area Code belong to normal landlines in Leicester, but it is possible that these numbers are being used elsewhere as virtual numbers.

There are multiple telephone companies operating in the 0116 Area Code and they are allocated blocks of numbers, which can be identified by the digits following the Area Code. In this case, the digits 280 after the area code indicate that the range of numbers was originally allocated to BT on 15 July 1994, although due to number portability, individual numbers within this range may now be allocated to other operators.
