Are You Ready To Dial Area Code? New System Goes Into Effect On Feb. 26

Dig out your phone instruction book. It is only days away before you will have to dial 402 to make a local call. So if you have all your numbers programmed in to your phone, now is the time to make the change.

The reason for the change is the area code overlay.

What is an area code overlay?

Due to increased demand for telephone numbers, the Nebraska Public Service Commission approved the addition of a new area code, 531, for the same geographic area as the 402 area code. This is called an area code overlay. An overlay does not require customers to change their existing area code or telephone number, but does require customers to dial the area code + seven-digit telephone number for all calls, including calls within the same area code.

Who will this affect?
