(WRDW/WAGT) -- A new area code is making its way to parts of South Carolina.
The Public Service Commission of South Carolina announced the change next year will be a "code overlay". It's expected to switch in October 2020.
The PSC says current numbers will not be changed, neither will the price of a call, coverage area, or other rates and services.
This means the only phones with a new area code will be the new accounts created after that date in 2020.
