The Future of the 918

Tulsa, OK – The Oklahoma Corporation Commission is scheduled to vote Friday on what plan to institute in the 918 area code to deal with the predicted exhaust of available phone numbers.

The Commission has two choices: 1) Overlay or 2) Split.

In an overlay, all existing numbers would keep the old 918 area code. Eventually all new numbers would get a new area code.

In a split, the existing 918 area code's geographic area is split into two parts, with one part keeping the 918 area code and the other part getting a new area code.
