866 is a toll free area code, just like 800. A prefix of 8 represents calls that are paid for by the recipient, rather than the caller. When people think of toll free calling, they usually think of 800 numbers, but there are many other options that function in the same way.
Toll free numbers are so popular that the telecommunications industry had to reach beyond 800 numbers. In order to provide the nation’s businesses with more options, they added 888, 877, 866, 855, 844, and 866 area codes. All of these numbers allow a user to call free of charge, putting the price of the call on the business rather than the customer.
