    << Return to news list This hearing is in regards to a potential change in the 518 area code area (518 covers approximately 17 upstate counties).  The information session will be at 5:00 p.m. with public statement hearing at 6:00 p.m.
     
    It is expected that the current 518 area code will reach its capacity in 2019.
     
    NYS Public Service is examining two options in resolving this issue:
     
    1. Existing numbers would not be affected, while new numbers would receive a separate area code;
     
    2.  Current geographic region would be divided into two areas, and all numbers in one of those areas would be assigned to and required to use a new area code.
     
    Bartholomew indicated in addition to the public information session on the 26th, public and businesses may provide comment via email - email secretary@dps.ny.gov or toll-free opinion line 1-800-335-2120. Bartholomew urges residents and businesses to express their opinion on this issue.
