VoIP phone service background
VoIP Services

The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is a telephone numbering plan whereby a specific geographic area is assigned a prefix. In this case, the 319 area code pertains to southeastern and east-central portions of the state of Iowa, including such major cities as Burlington, Cedar Falls, Cedar Rapids, Cedar Rapids, Oelwein, Fort Madison, Iowa City, Keokuk, Mount Pleasant, and Waterloo.  

In 1947, the state of Iowa was divided into 3 NPAs, with the área code 319 covering the eastern part. To avoid saturation of the 319 prefixes, , in the late 2000 area code 563 was moved to cover the northeastern part of the state. 

If you are interested in getting a 319 area code to make local calls in the south part of the state of Iowa, with VoIPstudio, you can get a number of your choice along with the services of our virtual PBX for business.

Linn County 319 area code benefits

The county is located in East Central Iowa and is the second most populous county in the state, with a population of more than 225,000. It is named for Senator Lewis F. Linn of Missouri, and its capital is the city of Cedar Rapids.

This geographical area has been one of Iowa’s fastest-growing economic and population areas in the last few years. One of the reports of the Technical Advisory Committee on Population and Economic Forecasting predicted a population increase of 10% and economic growth of 14% to 21% by 2030.

Linn’s wide variety of businesses provides economic stability to the local economy. However, manufacturing is the primary economic engine. The county is home to major employers in industries including grain processing, aerospace, food and beverage, biosciences, information technology, and renewable energy. For this reason, it is Iowa’s most prominent manufacturing center.

The county’s manufacturing industry continues to grow. Also, the increase in the service sector, mainly financial services, has recently been notable. In contrast to what one might think, this area of Iowa is not at all rural. Only 2 percent of Linn County’s working population is employed directly in agriculture.

Regarding economic data, Linn County has an unemployment rate of 3.9%, well below the national average (6%). In 2022, the county has experienced economic growth of 1.3%, and over the next ten years is expected to grow by 25.9%. Finally, the median household income of a Linn County resident is $59,560.
