Central Indiana residents are going to have to press an additional three numbers to make telephone calls a year from now.
The Indiana Office of Consumer Counselor says the Utility Regulatory Commission has approved a 463 area code that will overlay the existing 317 area code in the Indianapolis area. The 463 area code spells “IND” on a telephone keypad....Uh, 463 also spells out "GOD" on the keypad. I'm sure it was a coincidence but a funny coincidence at that.
The article notes that starting on September 17, 2016, all local calls made within the 317 area code will require the dialing of all 10 digits.
