Area Code 562

Areas are divided into smaller parts to fulfill ever increasing demand of new phone lines. This is how one area code splits into another or a new area code is added as an overlay to existing area.

In the beginning there were only three area codes assigned to California - area code 213, 415, 916. However, there is now long list and the only reason is the amplification of phone line demands. People need two or three telephone connections at a time in their houses as well as offices. It might feel weird having more than one telephone lines few years back. Now it is a kind of basic necessity to run telephone, internet or fax at a time especially in offices.
