678 is a North American Numbering Plan area code assigned to metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia, its suburbs and exurbs. The area code was first assigned to customers signing up for new telephone service on January 15, 1998. In local shorthand, it is usually written as 6/555-1234. A new area code, 470, will be established as an overlay of 678.
The 678 area code is an overlay of the 404 and 770 area codes. It is generally reserved for use outside the northern half of Interstate 285, serving Atlanta's booming northern suburbs of Marietta, Alpharetta, and Cumming with 404 generally reserved for inside the Perimeter (I-285).
Currently, cell phone subscribers can choose from either the 404, 678, or 770 area codes when signing up for service.
