PSC gives phase-in of 435 area code an extra 6 months

Utahns will have an extra six months to get used to the state's second area code.

The Public Service Commission said Wednesday it is extending the phase-in period for the 435 area code in response to a request from telephone companies for more time to adjust to the change.The phase-in period, during which either the 435 or 801 area code can be used for long-distance calls, was to have ended March 22. It will now continue until Sept. 20.

The new 435 area code applies to most of the state outside the Wasatch Front.
