The Regulatory Mix, TMI’s daily blog of regulatory activities, is a snapshot of PUC, FCC, legislative, and occasionally court issues that our regulatory monitoring team uncovers each day. Depending on their significance, some items may be the subject of a TMI Regulatory Bulletin.
The PSC is considering a petition filed by Neustar Inc. (the North American Numbering Plan Administrator) to add a new area code within or adjacent to the current 212/646/917 area code that serves the Manhattan area of New York City (the 917 area code also services Bronx, Queens and Staten Island). Neustar’s proposal would overlay a new area code over the current 212/646/917 area code. Neustar’s projection indicates the current 212/646/917 area code area will be exhausted in the first quarter of 2018. Click here for the full text of the petition.
