Verizon Communications Inc. Research Report
On September 16, 2013, Verizon Communications Inc. (Verizon) announced that callers in the 570 area code in Northeastern Pennsylvania (including Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, and Williamsport) will be required to dial 10 digits number (area code and seven-digit phone number) to complete their local phone calls, effective from September 21, 2013. Verizon stated that ten digit dialing is necessary as the telecommunication providers in the area prepare for the introduction of Northeastern Pennsylvania's new area code: 272, known as an "overlay," in October 2013. According to the Company, introduction of the new code will serve the same geographic boundary as the current 570 area code and will eliminate the need to split the existing area code into small areas. Carl E. Erhart, Verizon's Area Vice President, said, "With an overlay, customers' telephone numbers, including their current area code, will not change, so there is less inconvenience for them."
