The 954 area code is a telephone prefix that belongs to Broward County, located in southeastern Florida, surrounding just one county and 37 cities in its coverage radius.

Despite it covers a single county, the 954 area code is one of the dialing numbers with more users in the state, covering around 1.6 million of the 18.8 million residents. Since its activation, this prefix has become a symbol for Broward County, serving universities, urban areas, food services, public institutions, among others.  

Located in the Eastern Daylight time zone, the 954 area code disposes of a single overlay, the prefix 754, which surrounds the same region. 

1. History

The AT&T and the Bell System put in service the 954 area code on September 11, 1995, as part of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) created in 1947. This prefix is a split from the 305 area code, which is one of the 86 original dialing numbers designated for the country and used to serve Broward County since its introduction. 

Initially, the establishment of the 954 area code could solve the saturation conflict in the southeastern portion of the state. But, five years later, due to the spread of cell phones, a new codification became mandatory. 

The exhaustion of the prefix 954 was projected to 2002; for that reason, on December 4, 2000, the 754 area code started running, as part of an overlay plan established by the Florida Public Service Commission.
