Maine Area Code
Maine's area code, known as "Area Code 207," is the numerical designation used for telephone numbering within the state. Covering the entirety of Maine, it plays a crucial role in routing and connecting phone calls, serving as the primary means of telecommunication for residents, businesses, and organizations across the state. Maine has retained its single area code for an extended duration, ensuring efficient communication within its borders and with other regions.

Eastern Time is UTC-5 during Standard Time (EST) and UTC-4 during Daylight Saving Time (EDT), which is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November.

Maine's area code history has been relatively simple and consistent. Since the establishment of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) in 1947, the state has been served by a single area code, **Area Code 207**, which has covered the entirety of Maine. Unlike other regions that underwent area code splits or overlays due to population growth and increased telecommunications demand, Maine has maintained its original area code, making it a unique case of long-standing continuity in the world of telecommunications within the state.
