Area Code 940

Bell Laboratories and AT&T laid the foundation of an area code system in the year 1940. This area code is believed to have been introduced much later in the year 1947. The coding system was popularly known as NANP or North American Numbering Plan and took into consideration Canada as well as the United States. NANP is referred to as the agency that plays a dominant role in assigning phone numbers.

In the year 1947, states as well as provinces having one area code were offered three digit numbers as codes. These area codes had zero as their mid number. At this point of time, the total number of area codes was not more than 86. States as well as provinces having more than a single area code were offered three digit codes. These codes had one as their mid number. The first as well as the third digits were provided by taking into consideration the population density of the city as well as the region which is grouped under a particular area code. The areas that were most densely populated were offered the lowest numbers.
