Encyclopedia > Local access and transport area

Local access and transport area (LATA) is a term used in U.S. telecommunications regulation. It represents a geographical area of the United States under the terms of "the Modification of Final Judgment (MFJ) entered by the United States District Court for the District of Columbia in Civil Action number 82-0192 or any other geographic area designated as a LATA in the National Exchange Carrier Association, Inc. Tariff FCC No. 4." In telecommunication, Modification of Final Judgment (MFJ) is the 1982 antitrust suit settlement agreement (consent decree) entered into by the United States Department of Justice and the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) that, after modification and upon approval of the United States District Court for the District of...

LATA boundaries tend to be drawn around markets, and not necessarily along existing state, province, or even area code borders. Some LATAs cross over state boundaries, such as those for Chicago, Illinois, Portland, Oregon, and areas between Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. Area codes and LATAs do not necessarily share boundaries; many LATAs exist in multiple area codes, and many area codes exist in multiple LATAs.

Originally, the LATAs were grouped into regions within which one particular RBOC was allowed to provide services. The LATAs in each of these regions are numbered beginning with the same digit. Generally the LATAs were associated with carriers or other indications in the following manner: The Regional Bell operating companies (RBOC) are the result of the United States antitrust action against AT&T in 1983. ...

Digit Area/Use RBOC
0xx unused
1xx New York & New England NYNEX (now Verizon)
2xx Mid-Atlantic Bell Atlantic (now Verizon)
3xx Great Lakes Ameritech (now AT&T)
4xx Southeast BellSouth (to be acquired by AT&T)
5xx South-central Southwestern Bell (now AT&T)
6xx Northwest, Midwest, and Rocky Mountains US West (now Qwest)
7xx California and Nevada Pacific Bell (now AT&T)
8xx Non-contiguous and international areas
9xx Expansion

Since this time, however, some amount of deregulation, as well as a number of phone company mergers, have blurred the significance of these regions. A number of new LATAs have been formed within these regions since their inception, most beginning with the digit 9.

LATAs contribute to an often confusing aspect of long distance telephone service. Due to the various and overlapping regulatory limitations and inter-business arrangements, phone companies typically provide differing types of "long distance" service, each with potentially different rates: Long distance in telecommunications, refers to telephone calls made outside a certain area, usually characterized by an area code outside of a local call area. ...

  • within same LATA, within same state
  • within same LATA, between different states
  • between different LATAs, within same state
  • between different LATAs, between different states

Due to the general lack of understanding of the mechanics involved, many long distance companies do not explain the details of these different rates, which can lead to billing questions from surprised customers.


In order to facilitate the sharing of Telcordia telephone routing databases between countries, LATAs were later defined for the provinces of Canada, the other countries and territories of the North American Numbering Plan, and Mexico. Aside from U.S. territories, LATAs have no regulatory purpose in these areas. In 2000, the Canadian CRTC agency eliminated all Canadian provincial LATAs in favor of a single LATA for Canada (888). ... The North American Numbering Plan (NANP) is a system for three-digit area codes and seven-digit telephone numbers that direct telephone calls to particular regions on a public switched telephone network (PSTN), where they are further routed by the local network. ... The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC, in French Conseil de la radiodiffusion et des télécommunications canadiennes) was established in 1968 by the Canadian Parliament to replace the Board of Broadcast Governors. ...

The city or place name given with some LATAs is the name given to identify the LATA, not the limit of its boundary. Generally this is the most significant metropolitan area in the LATA. Also, listing under a state does not necessarily limit the LATA's territory to that state; there may be overlaps as well as enclaves. Areas that include notable portions of other states are explained, but not all LATA state overlaps may be detailed. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


LATA boundaries are not always solidly defined. Inter-carrier agreements, change proposals to the FCC, and new wiring developments into rural areas can and do often alter the effective borders between LATAs. Many sources on LATA boundary information conflict with each other at detailed levels. Telcordia data may provide the most up-to-date details of LATA inclusions. The FCCs official seal. ... ...
