  • New Area Code Coming To Connecticut This Year

    The state’s Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) announced on Monday that a new area code will be introduced later this year in Connecticut, in the calling region currently served by the 860 area code.

    Because of continuing local demand for telephone numbers, remaining unassigned telephone numbers in the 860 area code are expected to be exhausted by the end of 2014. PURA approved a new area code, 959, to be assigned as an overlay to the 860 region to meet the demand.
