Who Controls Georgia Area Codes?
Area codes define particular regions and geographical areas in the State of Georgia. The first three digits of every phone number typically represent the area code of the caller’s residence. Learning about Georgia area codes and their corresponding locations may help in sifting out and avoiding calls from potentially fraudulent actors. Georgia residents can also use reverse phone lookup tools to identify unknown callers.
