The International Direct Dialing prefix is needed to dial an international number directly rather than using an operator. The call is made by dialing the international call prefix for the originating country, followed by the country code of the number being dialed. e.g. Canada to UK 011 44 555 555 5555
The National Direct Dialing prefix is used to make a long distance call within the same country. e.g. Calgary to Edmonton 1 780 555 5555
