0116 299 Dialing Code

Leicester

Dialing Code 0116 299 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 299 after the area code indicate that the range of numbers was originally allocated to Virgin Media Limited on 12 February 1996, although due to number portability, individual numbers within this range may now be allocated to other operators.
