New Md. area code ‘227’ may premiere in 2023

September 29, 2022

Maryland telephone users may have to grapple with the area code “227” as early as next year because available numbers with familiar area codes such as “301” and “240” are running out, officials said Wednesday. In a statement, the Maryland Public Service Commission said “227” will serve the same geographic area as “301” and “240” after it approved a request from the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA) last month.
