866 Area Code
The area code 866 is a toll-free code just like 800, 877 or 888. It is used now because many of the 800 numbers have been used or will be used soon.
These toll-free numbers are used when companies do not want their customers to have to pay long-distance fees to reach them. The person, business or organization that has the toll-free line pays any and all long-distance rates.
At one time, the only designated toll-free area code was 800. However, due to the explosive demand for toll-free numbers, new area codes for toll-free designation were added. That's why 866 now exists as a toll-free area code.
