  • Conn. gets new area code as phone demand rises

    NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut needs a new area code, 19 years after it got its last one.

    The state Public Utilities Regulatory Authority announced today that 959 will be assigned where the 860 area code is used in northwestern, central and eastern Connecticut. Regulators are responding to rising demand for telephone numbers as cell phones multiply.

    Remaining unassigned numbers in the 860 area code are expected to run out by the end of the year.

    Regulators say the 959 area code will go into effect Aug. 30. Customers requesting new service, another line or seeking to move phone service may be assigned a number in the 959 area code.

    The North American Numbering Plan says the 860 area code went into service in August 1995.
