South Sudan Gets International Dialing Code – It Is 211

South Sudan officially the Republic of South Sudan, is a landlocked country in East Africa. Its capital and largest city is Juba. South Sudan is bordered by Ethiopia to the east; Kenya to the southeast; Uganda to the south; the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the southwest; the Central African Republic to the west; and Sudan to the north.  It is youngest country on earth.


As they transition and integrate into the world, the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) has helped by assigning them an international dialling code 211 (think of 234 for Nigeria). They have also gotten  a mobile country code (MCC) and a signalling area/network code (SANC) which helps to indicate how calls are routed.


The International Telecommunication Union (Union internationale des télécommunications, in French) is the specialized agency of the United Nations which is responsible for information and communication technologies. ITU coordinates the shared global use of the radio spectrum, promotes international cooperation in assigning satellite orbits, works to improve telecommunication infrastructure in the developing world and establishes worldwide standards.
