Area code 475

Area code 475

Area code 475 is a proposed telephone area code to serve southwestern Connecticut; it will overlay the existing 203 area code. A date for implementing this new overlay area code has yet to be determined; however, it was announced in September 2008 that it would take effect within two years.

It will include Bridgeport, New Haven, Waterbury, and the other communities served by the 203 area code, and requiring all callers within Connecticut to dial 10 digits, including the area code, including between two numbers with the same area code.)

Area codes 475 and 959 (the latter to overlay Connecticut's other current area code, 860) were both announced in August 1999, when new North American area codes were needed at a much faster rate than in the 2000s.
