MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Public Service Commission
says 938 will be the new area code that will be added in the
current 256 area code in north Alabama.
PSC officials said in a statement Thursday, the new area code
won't be implemented for at least two years.
The agency said only newly established numbers in the area will
be assigned the 938 code.
PSC commissioners took the action because the 256 area code will
run out of available numbers in 2011.
