Area Code 708

The area code system in the United States of America and Canada began in 1940 when Bell Laboratories and AT & T introduced the North American Numbering Plan under which all the States and Provinces that had a single area code were allotted a three digit area code with 0 as the middle number. Those states and provinces that had more than one area code were assigned 1 as the middle number. The first and third digits of the area code number depended upon the density of population in a particular region. Local numbers and area codes were not permitted to begin with the digits of 1 and 0. The second number of the code was always 1 and 0. In this way just by looking at the first three digits of a number one could recognize whether the call was a local or a long distance one. The area code system started its services in 1947 and the telephone numbers under the NANP had a seven digit code. With the passage of time these area codes had to be split into many area codes to meet the needs of the growing phone users in many regions. These splits took place on the basis of population density and economic developments. Today the number of area codes that are providing services to the States and Provinces of The United States and Canada are 300. The second stage of the development of the area code system took place in 1995. In this phase the area codes could have any number between the three digits and that also included 0 and 9 as the second digit of the area code.
