Area code 283 to be introduced as 513 area code runs out of numbers

A new area code will be introduced in the existing 513 area code as available phone numbers are expected to run out during the fourth quarter of 2023, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio announced today.

“The actual implementation of the overlay will be determined at a later date,” PUCO said in its announcement. “Upon implementation of the overlay, all new phone subscribers will be assigned the new 283 area code.”

Current 513 area code subscribers will continue to keep their current number and area code.

The move comes after the 937 area code received a new overlay with a 326 area code after numbers ran out in March 2020.
