‘The 407’ will have to share with 689


Neighboring counties just three hours south of Tallahassee will need an additional area code. “The 407” is running out of phone numbers, so the Public Service Commission (PSC) has approved a new area code for Central Florida – 689.

Interestingly, especially for 2018, this determination is based on recommendations made by a company called Neustar, the designated North American Numbering Plan Administrator in charge of area code planning nationwide.

The new area code will be used for following counties: Orange, Osceola, Seminole and parts of Lake and Volusia. Hopefully, those transitioning don’t have area code identity crisis.
