Proposed area code overlay

The CT Public Utility commission in August 1999 proposed an area code overlay for the 203 area code. [ [http://www.areacode-info.com/headline/1999/ct990818.htm "Regulators Have Area Code Plan"] Hartford Courant, August 1999] The area code yet to be assigned is 475. A date for implementing the new overlay area code has yet to be determined; however, in September 2008 it was announced that the 475 area code will overlay 203 within two years.
