Where Is Area Code 587?

The 587 area code serves major cities in Northern and Southern Alberta, significantly contributing to the business growth in the region. Covering popular cities like Edmonton, Banff, Fort McMurray, H Lethbridge, Red Deer, and Grande Prairie, the local 587 code plays a huge role in promoting the region's telecommunication system.

Although primarily serving Alberta, the 587 phone code also covers significant areas of Saskatchewan. Introduced primarily as an overlay for the 403 code in northern Alberta and 780 in southern Alberta, it falls within the Mountain Time Zone, which is 7 hours behind Coordinated Universal Time (UTC-7). The designation of 587 has largely contributed to the development of Alberta and Saskatchewan, covering all the vibrant areas, older settlements, and urban centers.

Evolution of 587 Area Code Alberta

The 587 is an overlay area code under the North American Numbering Plan (NANP). Officially introduced on September 19, 2008, in the Canadian province of Alberta, the 587 area code was implemented to meet the growing demand for phone numbers driven by robust economic growth. Initially, it overlaid the existing 780 code to provide additional numbering resources. Since 2008, both the 587 and 780 area codes have continued to serve the major cities of northern and central Alberta.

Prior to 1999, the 403 area code was the only area code for the entire province of Alberta. However, additional area codes were introduced as demand for new phone numbers grew. The 780 area code was put into service in 1999 to cover northern Alberta, while 403 remained for the southern part of the province.

After the September 2008 announcement, the 587 area code was put into service as an overlay for the 780 region to accommodate new numbers alongside the existing 780 code.

587 Phone Code: Business Opportunities and Future Outlook

The introduction of area code 587 brought numerous business opportunities by boosting the telecommunication industry. With additional numbering resources, new phone services, industry packages, and expanded telephone coverage became available. As the 587 code overlaid with the existing 780 code, new businesses and startups were the major beneficiaries.

Despite the 2008-2009 financial crisis, the designation of the 587 overlay area code ensured economic resilience, supporting business expansion, growth, and innovation. As the economy recovered, Alberta's GDP growth reached around 5% annually between 2010 and 2014, driven primarily by the major energy sectors of oil and gas. The 587 area code facilitated the development of new businesses that utilize these energy products and supported related industries.

Emerging technologies like Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) and cloud communication services are expected to drive further demand for 587 numbers. The continued evolution of the telecommunication infrastructure in the region promises sustained business growth and innovation in Alberta and surrounding areas.
