New 472 Area Code Coming in October

Shallotte, NC – The North Carolina Utilities Commission announced a new 472 area code will be implemented in southeastern North Carolina in October and will serve the same geographic region as the 910 area code which is currently used in Brunswick, Columbus, Robeson, Duplin and Pender counties. This is called an area code overlay and is being put in place to ensure a continuing supply of new telephone numbers.

According to the North American Numbering Plan Administrator, the remaining supply of available telephone numbers in the 910 area is estimated to be exhausted in early 2023, requiring the establishment of a new area code to support future demands in the region.

Beginning October 7, 2022, customers requesting new phone service or additional lines may be assigned a number that begins with the new 472 area code. Telephone customers with current service will not be required to change their existing area code, phone number, or the way calls are dialed. They will continue to dial using an area code and phone number for all local calls just as they do today within and between the 910 and new 472 area code.
