Area code 353 was put into service as an all services overlay of area code 608. Area code 353 will only become available to subscribers when all assignable central office codes in area code 608 area code are assigned. Ten digit dialing (area code + seven digit number) is necessary in the 353/608 overlay because different homes in the same geographic area can have the same seven digit phone number but each would have a different area code.
