[Connecticut Area Codes 203 and 860] Public Service Announcement

Today is the first day of permissive 10-digit dialing in area codes 203 and 860. In other words, today is the first day in which you may, but are not required to, dial ten digits to call someone within your area code, if you are calling within area codes 203 or 860.

On November 14, 2009, permissive 10-digit dialing ends and mandatory 10-digit dialing begins in both area codes 203 and 860. On that day you will be required to dial ten digits in order to call someone within your area code, if your area code is either 203 or 860.

This change is being made in order to facilitate the overlay of area code 475 over area code 203. Even though area code 475 will only be overlaid over area code 203, callers in both area codes 203 and 860 will have to dial all calls with ten digits beginning on November 14th.

Area code 959 is planned as an overlay over area code 860, and has a planned activation date of 2011.
