Area Code Update: Quebec and New York
Feb. 11, 2010 (Vol. 31, No. 3)
The North American Numbering Plan Administration (NANPA) announced new overlays for the 450 area code in Quebec, and the 718 and 347 area codes in New York.
An NPA is exhausted when all the available NXXs in that area code are assigned.
A “split” occurs when a portion of numbers in an existing area code are assigned a new area code. An “overlay” is an addition to an existing area code in the same geographic region. “Permissive dialing” – when both the old and new area codes are active – is possible between the effective date and the mandatory date.
