Area code 902


Area code 902

Area code 902 is the telephone area code in the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, encompassing the whole of both provinces. The 902 Area Code was originally established in 1947 for all three Maritime provinces, with Newfoundland and Labrador added shortly after it joined Canada; New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador were separated from 902 sometime in 1955. Newfoundland and Labrador subsequently split from New Brunswick's 506 Area Code, into its own 709 Area Code, sometime during early 1962.

902 remains the only North American area code shared by two provinces; no US area code has ever been shared by two states. (867 is shared by three territories. 809 was at one time shared by two US territories and several foreign territories.)

The incumbent local exchange carrier in 902 is Aliant (now part of the Bell Aliant income trust), which was produced from a merger that included Island Telecom (formerly Island Tel) and Maritime Telephone and Telegraph (MT&T).

In 2005 the 902 telephone market was the most competitive telephone exchange in North America when EastLink which also was the first cable company to offer local telephone service over a fiber optic network in North America in 1999.Fact|date=May 2007
