678 Area Code: History & Time Zone

Did you know that the 678 area code used to cover a much larger area than it does today? Or that it was one of the original area codes established in 1947?The 678 area code encompasses parts of nine counties in Georgia. But when it was first established, it covered a much larger area. In fact, it was one of the original area codes established in 1947!

Over the years, the 678 area code has been gradually reduced in size. This is due to the proliferation of cell phones and other communication technologies. And as these technologies have become more widespread, the need for area codes has diminished.

But even though the 678 area code is now smaller than it used to be, it still plays an important role in the Georgia telecommunications landscape. And it always will!

Cities Served by Area Code 678

678 is a Georgia telephone area code that covers the northern suburbs of Atlanta. The area code includes the cities of Alpharetta, Avondale Estates, Chamblee, Doraville, Dunwoody, Johns Creek, Marietta, Roswell, Sandy Springs, and Smyrna. 678 was created on January 15, 1998, as a split from area code 404. In November 2009, the Georgia Public Service Commission proposed an overlay of 678 with area code 770. This proposed overlay would have created ten-digit dialing between the two area codes. However, on January 11, 2011, the overlay was canceled.

In March 2011, the PSC voted to allow an overlay of 678 with area code 470, which took effect on November 1, 2011. This created an additional 10 million numbers available for use in the 470 area code.

Toll Charges for 678 Area Code Phone Numbers

What do you think about the new toll charges for 678 area code phone numbers?I think it's unfair. I live in the 678 area code, and I'm being charged to call my family and friends.

The new toll charges went into effect on July 1, and they apply to all calls made within the 678 area code. The charge is $0.50 per call, and it applies to both landline and mobile phone numbers.

Some people are saying that the new toll charges are a way for the phone companies to make money. But I think it's just a way to make it more difficult for people in the 678 area code to communicate with each other.

I think the phone companies should repeal the new toll charges. What do you think?
