Ready to dial?: PSC votes to give new customers new area codes in 715 area
If you live in northern, central, or eastern Wisconsin, you'll have to hit 10 numbers to make a local call starting in the next couple years.
Today (Thursday), the state Public Service Commission vote to create two new area codes, to be used only by new phone customers.
For example, if you get new phone service in the 715 area code, you'll actually get a different three-digit code starting in 2010. The same thing will happen in the 920 area code.
