Get Ready for 10-Digit local dialing in the Patch (And an Additional Area Code)

By March 12, 2011, 10-digit local calling will be mandatory for all calls made from our 705 area code, with the actual transition to 10-digit dialing starting January 15th.

We will also be gaining a new area code of 249 starting March 19th, 2011, as the 705 area code is running out of available numbers. (Existing customers get to keep their current 705 area code.)
