History of Ontario 226 Phone Code

The 226 London phone code is an overlay of the 519 area code. On October 21, 2006, 226 became the third area code in Ontario. The beginning of area codes in the province dates back to 1947 with the introduction of the 416 code. In response to the rising demand for telephone services in the southern part of the province, the 519 phone code was allocated in 1953. By 2006, 519 phone numbers were nearing exhaustion, leading to the origination of the 226 overlay to serve the same region.

The demand for additional numbering capacity grew as more people began using 226 phone numbers. To address this issue, the 548 area code was put into service as an additional overlay to expand the numbering capacity in Southwestern Ontario further. These measures ensured that the region could continue to grow and thrive, maintaining adequate telecommunications infrastructure.
