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 area code 502 pertains to the north and central parts of the State of Kentucky. It includes cities such as Frankfort, Louisville, Georgetown, Shelbyville, and Bardstown.

The area code 502 was one of the original 86 in 1947, and the prefix covered the entire state of Kentucky. However, in order to avoid saturation, in 1954, the central and southeastern parts of the state were covered by 606. Finally, in 1999, area code 859 was introduced for the central zone and area code 270 for the southwestern site. Currently, the 502 area code pertains to the northern and central parts of the state.

If you are interested in getting a 502 area code to make local calls in the south part of the state of Kentucky, with VoIPstudio, you can get a number of your choice along with the services of our virtual PBX for business.
