Schedule and Locations of Local Jurisdiction and Public Meetings
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION MEETINGS REGARDING CHANGES IN THE
619 AND 858 AREA CODES
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) will begin the process to add the 858 area code to the areas now served by the 619 area code, as the 619 area code is expected to use up its available prefixes by March 2019. Adding the 858 area code to the areas served by the 619 area code is known as a boundary-elimination overlay, which will provide additional prefixes and new telephone numbers for the 619 area code customers. The boundary-elimination overlay, pending CPUC approval, will allow all customers to keep their current phone numbers, including their area code. To avoid service disruption, the 858 area code will be added to the areas served by the 619 area code by September 2018, six months before depletion of prefixes. In September 2018, 619 area code customers requesting new phone numbers may be assigned the 858 area code.
The CPUC will be holding public meetings on October 4 and 5, 2016, to inform the public and to hear concerns about changes in the 619 and the 858 area code regions. More information is available at http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/619areacode.
