NEVADA STATE TELEPHONE CENTRAL OFFICE'S

 

                                    

AREA CODE 702

Original area code for the entire state of Nevada as part of the North American Numbering Plan in October 1947. The code remained the sole area code for the entire state of Nevada until 1998, when due to tremendous growth in the Las Vegas region the code was split. Nevada has a rich history of various independent telephone companies operating numerous exchanges in the state due to the small communities and remote locations. The two largest companies to serve the state was Nevada Bell and Central Telephone Company of Nevada which through various merges and acquisitions is now Century Link.
