Area Code 860 History:

08/28/1995
Area code 860 was put into service. Area code 860 was created from a split of area code 203

Area code 959 has been approved as an overlay of area code 860 by the Connecticut Public Utility Regulatory Authority with an implementation date of August 30, 2014. Ten digit dialing in the 860 and 959 area codes will be mandatory.

Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 860/959 overlay because two different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
