LATAInfo is a map database of Local Access Transport Areas (LATAs) across the United States. LATAs are geographic regions used to identify a telephone call’s carrier type. In general, each LATA contains a single major metropolitan area. All telephone calls within a specific LATA are routed by Local Exchange Carriers (LECs). Calls between two parties in different LATAs must, by law, be transported by a long-distance carrier.
Provides information on the nation’s local access and long-distance markets, previously only available in tabular format, in a concise, easy-to-use product.
