Massachusetts Area Codes Overview

Massachusetts, with its rich history and diverse communities, is served by several area codes that help define its telecommunications landscape. The most prominent area codes include 617, covering the greater Boston area, and 413, serving Western Massachusetts. The 508 area code encompasses central and southeastern regions, while 781 and 339 extend to the North Shore and MetroWest areas. As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, the state has experienced overlay area code introductions like 857 and 351 to meet the increasing demand for phone numbers. These area codes play a vital role in connecting residents, businesses, and institutions across the state, reflecting the dynamic and evolving nature of Massachusetts' population and economy.
