It speed up the communication. It created a new channel for long distance communication, instead of letters which requires long time to deliver and may become lost.
When introduced, area codes were important to helping route calls around the country: local calls were handled by your local telephone exchange, but dialling an area code told… the exchange to connect your call to another exchange in the area of your destination area. Nowadays, having area codes isn't technically necessary but they still serve several purposes: 1. It allows local calls to be dialled using fewer numbers. For example, Bristol has the area code of 0117, followed by seven digit local numbers. Within the Bristol area, this code can be dropped and local calls connected by using just the seven digit local number, saving time when dialling. 2. Similarly, splitting the country into area codes and having the facility to dial locally as described above in (1) makes numbers easier to remember locally. For example, if you lived in Swansea you would be used to all local numbers beginning with the 01792 area code, and you'd then only need to remember the following six digit local number for anybody you wanted to call in the area. If we didn't use area codes, all phones would just have a random 11 digit string of numbers which would be much harder to remember. (It'd be much easier to remember that your two friends are at Swansea 202819 and Swansea 334127 than 83294800938 and 46839710922.) 3. It is helpful to identify local businesses or people. For example, if you live in Cardiff and have the 029 area code, you know that anybody else with an area code of 029 is also local - helpful when finding local businesses, for example. Some small countries don't use area codes any more. For example, telephones in Denmark each just have a unique eight-digit number, with the telephone network working out how to route the call.

Nerd Powers Answer- The purpose of the telephone now is so that people don't have to walk distances to communicate. It is also easier than writing and much quicker. Back then it wasn't like now .
