NYS Public Service Commission to Hold Hearings on 315 Area Code Expansion

A hearing will be held on Monday evening at the State Office Building concerning options for expansion of the 315  area code in the area.

Each hearing will be preceded by an information session at which staff of the Department of Public Service will describe the proposals and be available to respond to questions. The Commission’s goal is to develop a plan that minimizes disruption to customers while ensuring availability of telephone numbers beyond 2015 in that region.
The two plans being proposed include a geographic split where certain areas would adopt a new area code but other areas would keep the 315 area code and another plan, known as an overlay, which would allow for new phone numbers in the 315 area code to use a new area code.
