City
A city is a large human settlement.[4][5] Cities generally have extensive systems for housing, transportation, sanitation, utilities, land use, and communication. Their density facilitates interaction between people, government organizations and businesses, sometimes benefiting different parties in the process. Historically, city-dwellers have been a small proportion of humanity overall, but following two centuries of unprecedented and rapid urbanization, roughly half of the world population now lives in cities, which has had profound consequences for global sustainability.[6] Present-day cities usually form the core of larger metropolitan areas and urban areas—creating numerous commuters traveling towards city centers for employment, entertainment, and edification

Area Code 770
Area code 770 is a telephone area code in the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) serving all or part of 29 counties in North Georgia, including most of Atlanta's suburbs. It was split from area code 404 in December 1995, just three years after the creation of area code 706.[1]Contents1 History 2 Counties served 3 See also 4 References 5 External linksHistory[edit] The creation of 706 was intended as a long-term solution to relieve exchanges in North Georgia. However, within a short time, 404 was close to exhaustion once again due to the proliferation of cell phones, fax machines, and pagers in the fast-growing Atlanta

metro area. While it was apparent that the metro area could not stay entirely within 404, 770 was put into service sooner than anticipated as part of the fallout from the creation of 706. When 706 was originally created, it included several fast-growing exurbs of Atlanta

Telephone Numbering Plan
A telephone numbering plan is a type of numbering scheme used in telecommunication to assign telephone numbers to subscriber telephones or other telephony endpoints.[1] Telephone numbers are the addresses of participants in a telephone network, reachable by a system of destination code routing. Telephone numbering plans are defined in each of administrative regions of the public switched telephone network (PSTN) and they are also present in private telephone networks. For public number systems, geographic location plays a role in the sequence of numbers assigned to each telephone subscriber. Numbering plans may follow a variety of design strategies which have often arisen from the historical evolution of individual telephone networks and local requirements. A broad division is commonly recognized, distinguishing open numbering plans and closed numbering plans[discuss]
