The new area code overlay for part of Central PA has been announced. Portions of what is now in the 717 area code geography will be issued 223 area codes, starting in the third quarter of 2017. This will ONLY apply to new numbers that are issued. Existing 717 numbers will NOT change.
IMPORTANT: All customers in the area – with the 717 or 223 area code – will be required to dial the complete 10-digit number for all calls – local and long distance. Customers who dial 123-4567 now, will have to dial 717-123-4567 or 223-123-4567 after the change.
Check back for updates as the implementation data approaches.
