Area code 917

An area code is a prefix added to a telephone number in the North American Numbering Plan. Area code 917 covers the region of New York City. Since New York City is growing at a much accelerated speed its earlier area codes like 212, 347, 646 and 718 were unable to keep up with the increasing demands of telephone connections hence the area code 917 was introduced for providing area code to the city's cell phones, pagers and voicemail services. Due to scarcity of area code 212, area code 917 is also used for landline connections in the Manhattan region. This area code 917 is the first to fall under the category of overlay plan.

The area code 917 is newly formed area code. The area code 917 is the only area code which is "Service specific" which means that it is not just used for landline telephone numbers only but also for cell phones, voicemail and pagers which initially had the area codes 212 and 718 for Manhattan and four boroughs. This change helped to open up a few more landline numbers. But after this no other new area codes were given this status.

With approximately 8.5 million people New York City has been ranked as the most populous city in the United States. New York City has world wide recognition in the fields of commerce, finance, culture, entertainment and also fashion. It boasts of power as being the headquarters for the United Nations and also for being the heart of intercontinental relationships. The city has five boroughs: The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. It has been the center for tourism in the country. Everyday thousands of visitors from all over the world flock to see the famous Statue of Liberty, the Empire state building which is the tallest building in the world. It is also popularly known as "The city that never sleeps".

To cater the large demand of landline connections New York City has some of the most popular telephone service carriers such as Sprint Spectrum, Verizon Communications, Comcast, Vonage Holdings Corporation, Vonage, Telecom Global Services, AT&T, Monmouth telecom and many others. Some of the popular mobile phone service providers of area code 917 include Cingular wireless, D2 wireless, Arch wireless holding, Verizon wireless, Mobile Partners Corporation, Virgin Mobile and similar other big companies.

These telephone providers have multiple packages to choose from. One can even customize their needs by picking up a bundled services package. The best part is in low tariffs that the telephone service providers offer if customer agrees for a one year lock-in period of their services. To keep up with the competition and offer the customer one stop shop for their phone, internet and cable needs, most of the home phone service providers have extended their service beyond the basic home phone. Most of the well known providers like Comcast, Verizon or AT&T have home phone services, digital cable services as well as Internet facilities. To tacklet the pricing pressures from orthodox VoIP phone service providers, home phone providers are developing innovative pricing options and features targeted at customer base residing in area code 917.
