The East African dialing region consists of Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda.
In today’s world, it consists of a shortcut for calling between the three countries without having to dial through the normal process of exit code and country code.
Until its dissolution in 1977, the three countries of the East African dialing region had their telephone systems managed by the East African Post and Telecommunications Corporation (EAPTC).
Until that point, all three countries were unified in one telephone system.
Following the dissolution of the EAPTC, each country enacted its own administration of the phone system.
The “shortcut” connection between each of these countries has continued to remain in place.
