Mandatory 10-Digit Dialing Coming Soon

Beginning on Saturday, July 17, 2010, all local calls originating from the 715 area code will require 10-digit dialing. In response to available phone numbers running out, the Public Service Commission has created an “overlay” in the 715 region, which means that soon both the current 715 and new 534 area codes will serve our area. Current phone numbers will not change as a result of the “overlay,” and all local calls will remain local calls. Similarly, 911 and 211 services are not affected.
