The system of area codes began in the year 1940 in The United States and Canada. Under the area code system the States and Provinces that had a single digit number code were given a three digit number code for phone services throughout the United States and Canada. Bell Laboratories and AT & T introduced this system and called it The North American Numbering Plan or the NANP. The area served by the NANP was divided into smaller Numbering Plan Areas (NPAs) and they were each identified by a three-digit NPA code which is now generally called an area code. The area codes were equally distributed among the States and Provinces of The United States and Canada. The system began giving phone services in 1947. The system was launched with 86 codes at that time. When the population in the areas increased these area codes had to be split into many area codes to give better services to the people in those regions.
