NEW AREA CODE - July 8, 2019
The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has approved a plan to implement the new 326 area code. The 326 area code will overlay the existing 937 area code, which is expected to run out of available phone numbers in 2020. The North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA) has identified a plan with the PUCO to implement the new area code. Mandatory 10 or 11-digit dialing for all local calls will begin on Feb. 8, 2020, and the new 326 area code will take effect on March 8, 2020. Current telephone numbers, including area codes will not change. Beginning Aug. 10, 2019, customers are encouraged to begin 10 or 11-digit dialing for all local calls so that it is second nature when it becomes necessary on Feb. 8, 2020 to dial all 10 or 11-digits to make local calls. Feb. 8, 2020, customers in the 937 area code will be required to dial 10 or 11- digit phone numbers for all local calls. Calls currently considered local calls will remain local calls. Calls between 937 and 326 are local calls. Long distance calling will not change. 911 and other three digit numbers (211, 311, 411, 811, etc.), if available in the local community, will not change. Customers should begin or continue to identify their phone number with the area code. For more information, visit www.PUCO.ohio.gov.
