CallingAreaInfo quickly calculates a comprehensive analysis that allows users to
easily identify and understand local calling areas and plans without spending
weeks pouring over reams of cryptic tariff and regulatory data. This product
demystifies complex technical, engineering data and makes it simple to use,
delivering data that is instantly meaningful and upon which organizations, such
as telecommunications service providers, can take action.
CallingAreaInfo maps the local calling plans available to business and
residential customers when calling out from or into a location. Calling plans
are the rate structures that determine which phone numbers can call which other
phone numbers and at what rates. Most Local Exchange Carriers (LECs) offer more
than one calling plan for each NPA/NXX combination they serve. CallingAreaInfo
also distinguishes local calls based on cost and status, including Free, Toll,
Time of Day and Holiday.

About Local Calling
A calling plan is the rate structure that determines which phone numbers can
call which other numbers and at what rates. Most Local Exchange Carriers (LECs)
offer more than one calling plan for each NPA/NXX combination they serve. The
NPA represents the Area Code, the NXX is the Exchange.
Local calls are ones in which a long distance provider is not necessary.
However, there are both free and toll local calls and it is important to
differentiate between them.
These rates are further impacted by the time of day of the call, holiday status,
initial cost/duration of the call and overtime cost/duration. Time of day does
not affect the geography that corresponds to the rate steps, but it can affect
the actual rate being charged for the call. In addition, some calling plans
offer different rates for holidays.
