Southwest Ohio is getting a new area code

Tech Highlights:

  • An area code overlay usually requires a transition to 10-digit dialing, but that’s already being done after a nationwide implementation of the 988 dialing code for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. The 513 area code covers Cincinnati and several other surrounding cities, including Hamilton, Middletown, Oxford and Miamitown.

  • CINCINNATI, OHIO — The Ohio Public Utilities Commission authorised a plan this week to overlay a new area code for sections of southwest Ohio. By late 2023, the 513 area code is likely to run out of options. The idea to introduce the area code 283 was approved by PUCO earlier this week, but no date has been set for implementation. Officials noted that current 513 area code users will keep their phone numbers, but that once 283 is added, all new phone subscribers will be assigned to that area code.
