Yep, your favorite sitcoms home digits will be added to Maryland three digit area code. Another fun fact is that the 80’s sitcom, ‘227’ did in fact take place in Washington, DC which is about 45 minutes from Maryland. So, how ironic right?
On Thursday, The Maryland Public Service Commission (PSC) Announced The New 227 Area Code
According to the commission, the remaining available phone numbers in the 240/301 area are estimated to run out next year, after which time, new 227 numbers will be assigned. If you’re wondering if you’ll keep your same phone number, not to worry. You will.
The New Area Code Is Projected To Serve The Same Geographic Area In Maryland Currently Using The 240 and 301 Area Codes.
According to a press release, the PSC voted on August 3, 2022, to approve a petition filed by the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA), which is the neutral third-party entity that allocates telephone numbering resources.
