Many Tasmanian Government phone numbers are changing from October 2013 as part of a move to a new phone system.
000, 1300 and 1800 numbers will not change.
The new numbers will not all begin with the usual 62, 63 and 64, so it’s not a mistake if you see numbers beginning with 61, 65 or 67.
For a quick connection to Government, call Service Tasmania on 1300 13 55 13.
You can also use your Smart Phone to scan this QR code and save Service Tasmania’s details into your contacts, guaranteeing you will have the number on hand when needed.
The change to numbers is due to the withdrawal by the provider of the current spectrum phone technology, which has been used across the Tasmanian Government for more than 22 years.
The Government is moving to a new VoIP (voice over internet protocol) technology, a move that necessitates the allocation of new phone numbers.
The new phone service will reduce costs for Government, with standard calls and rental being less expensive.
