Default New area codes coming for region

343 to be introduced in May because 613 running out of numbers

"There will be a new area code in Ottawa in three months.

The new area code — 343 — will become active in May.

It will apply to some new numbers; existing numbers won’t be changed.

The 613 area code will run out of numbers by Sept. 2011, according the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission.

The Outaouais — Quebec’s largest region — will also be getting a new area code in three years, two years before there’s no longer room for any new 819 numbers.

The CRTC found out last spring area code 819 will run out of numbers by February 2015. Starting June 1, 2013, some new phone numbers will be given area code 873.

The new code will cover the same geographic area as 819 — the largest of Quebec’s seven existing area code regions. It covers all of western and northern Quebec.

Existing customers will keep their current area code and phone numbers.

CRTC staff said adding 10-digit dialling and additional area codes has been happening for the past few years. Phone users in the 705 area code in Peterborough and northern Ontario may be assigned code 249 starting in May of next year.

CRTC staff said it is imperative to give about two years’ notice of a new area code in order to allow phone service providers enough time to manage the technical aspects."

No way! This sucks! It's all Mattamy's fault! Phil Acker caught this during my 30-day inspection, but Tarion said it wasn't covered! Dam Ottawa City Council!

Couldn't resist - there were no comments on this thread.
