Decision Delayed on 918 Area Code

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission postpones a vote on a new area code plan for eastern Oklahoma served by the 918 area code.
A date for the deliberations has not been set.
The 918 area code is expected to run out of telephone numbers sometime in 2012. An administrative law judge is recommending an overlay in which a new area code would be set over the existing area code territory.
Commissioner Bob Anthony voted for the overlay as did Commissioner Jeff Cloud. But when Commissioner Dana Murphy voted against it, Cloud quickly withdrew his vote and Anthony called a recess.
After the recess the commission voted 3-0 to schedule the issue for a public deliberation at a later date to consider the benefits of a geographic split for the new area code.
