Three months until mandatory 10-digit dialing

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Prepare to adjust your dialing habits- and for area code 364.

In 3 months, western Kentucky telephone customers will be required to use a 10-digit dialing system for all local calls.

In order to meet the need for more telephone numbers in area code 270, the PSC decided the best solution was the creation for another area code.

The 6-month “permissive dialing” period began in August, where callers can choose to either use the 7-digit dialing method or the 10-digit dialing method.

The instatement of area code 364 does not change current 270 numbers.
