Additional Information about 404 Area Code.
Until 1954, area code 404 covered the whole state of Georgia. However, in 1954, the southern part of the state was split off into its own section covered by a new area code: 912. But when the population began to grow in the 1980s, there was a much bigger demand for phone numbers. Most of the 404 area outside of Atlanta was given to area code 706 to resolve this issue. Atlanta’s rapidly growing population in the 1990s made it clear that a long-term solution was needed. This led to the addition of prefix 678, followed by 470 in 2001. Currently, common prefixes 678 and 470 overlay 404 and 770. But area code 404 is still heavily used for Atlanta and its suburbs.
Atlanta’s growing population has been the major factor driving its success. Skilled labor is not difficult to find. Low costs and regulations, as well as a wide array of industries, make this city a business-friendly location to conduct business in.
With Atlanta being a hub for major growth and activity and home to large corporations, starting a business here is a sensible step. And virtual local numbers make this step faster and easier.
