10-digit dialing coming to 870 area

Posted By on Fri, Dec 11, 2009 at 1:39 PM

The state Public Service Commission announced today that it will adopt an "overlay" plan to cope with the coming end of available telephone numbers in the 870 area code in Arkansas.

This means, rather than carving out a new area code, the 870 code will stay the same, but theree will be a second area code in the area that will require 10-digit dialing for local calls. The PSC has asked for plan to implement the change over 13 months.
