What this means for you
Introducing a new area code in a region already served by another code creates only minor changes.
- Only new phone numbers are affected by the addition.
- Existing phone numbers keep the same area code and are not changed in any way.
- Local calling areas remain the same.
- The 9-1-1 emergency number remains a three-digit number throughout the area.
