555-1212.Com Responds To The Dizzying Pace; Website To Provide Information On Upcoming Area Code Splits

July 6, 1998, San Francisco, Calif. -- 555-1212.com, Inc., a leader in information services on the Internet, today announced the latest nationwide information on upcoming area code splits will be available as it is released.

This update of area codes is part of the recent restructuring of the 555-1212.com website in partnership with Terret, Inc., a provider of business and web solutions to Bay Area companies.

Over the past three years, telephone companies around the country have split area codes to accommodate the growing demand for telephone numbers, fax machines, modems, cell phones and pagers. The number of U.S. area codes has grown from the original 86 in 1947 to almost 200 today. The 555-1212.com website provides a central location that allows users to quickly access this information.

"With so many area code changes scheduled in the future, 555-1212.com makes it easy for people to find out the most current information," said Andy Rosenbaum, President, Terret. "People can avoid the frustrating recordings about the new area codes, or worse, recordings that say that the number is no longer in service."

"Terret is committed to providing up-to-date information with 555-1212.com," said Richard Cox, CEO, Terret. "We are developing a system for users to add cities to the 60,000 distributed in the national database. This is just one of the many changes planned for the next quarter." About 555-1212.com, Inc.
