So after a public commission has taken place and a long exhausting study has been done, it has been determined that Maine does need another area code besides 207. It now appears between VOIP networks cellular networks such as AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile as well as other low-cost carriers and the local phone company because people still do have house phones and the northern part of the state. Maine will have to stop delaying the inevitable and adopt another area code. Now let's realize that another area code on paper is not a huge thing, but think of all of the 207 bumper stickers and the pride of the area code in the 207 that has commenced over the past 10 years since Ludacris told us to Rep our area codes.
