Atlanta, February 17, 2022 – In addition to 404/ 770/ 678/470 – Atlanta is scheduled to launch 943 as the new area code on March 15, 2022.
The current collection of Atlanta area codes are reaching their limit as most 10-digit combinations have been used. New numbers are expected to run out completely by 2023, based on released statement by Georgia Public Service Commission.
The existing 404/470/678/770 area code overlay, which serves the metropolitan area of Atlanta and surrounding communities such as Alpharetta, Duluth, Dunwoody, East Point, Forest Park, Gainesville, Griffin, Lawrenceville, Mableton, Marietta, Peachtree City, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Smyrna and Tucker. The new 943 area code will be superimposed over the region now served by the 404, 470, 678 and 770 area codes.
Anyone requesting a new phone number or additional line may be assigned a phone number starting with 943. Customers receiving a 943 area code will be required to dial the area code and phone number for all local calls, just as customers with telephone numbers from the 404, 470, 678 and 770 area codes do today.
The new area code is expected to fulfill metro Atlanta's needs for the next 10 years.
