New Area Code Hearings
812 is running out of available phone numbers, and a new
area code will need to be added for southern Indiana.
The new code could be added to the entire area through an
“overlay,” which lets all customers keep their current phone numbers
but requires 10-digit dialing for local calls. The other option is a
“geographic split” which would divide the 812 area. This would let
consumers keep 7-digit dialing for local calls but would require most
customers to switch to numbers with a new area code.
You can weigh in by attending any of 10 Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) public field hearings:
•Monday, March 4: Terre Haute City Hall
