10-Digit Dialing Coming

We are now less than two weeks away from introduction of ten-digit dialing for local telephone calls.

To meet growing demand for phone numbers the industry is adding new area codes to BC and Alberta.

They are 7-7-8 in BC’s current 2-5-0 area code region and, 5-8-7 right across Alberta.

The end result means that people must add the area code for local calls, making them ten digit numbers.

A permissive dialing period will begin, on June 23rd to help callers adjust.
