New toll free area code 833 introduced

The FCC just released 833 as the newest toll free prefix. They typically release a new toll free prefix to meet demand from the business community. It's been three years since the FCC has released a new toll free number. The first toll free prefix, 800, was released in 1967 and has been followed by five other numbers: 888, 866, 877, 855, and 844.

If your business has a toll free number, make sure it is protected from toll free fraud!
