LATAInfo™ is a map database of Local Access Transport Areas (regions), allowing you to easily differentiate calls carried by a Local Exchange Carrier (LEC) from those carried by a long-distance provider.

Local Access Transport Areas (LATAs) 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 LECs. However, telephone calls between two parties in different LATAs must, by law, be ‘transported’ by a long-distance carrier. LATAInfo™ converts information on the nation’s local access and long-distance markets, previously available only in tabular format, into a concise, easy-to-use map.

Provided a one layer containing LATA regions, Pitney Bowes builds and maintains this data  from federal, state and municipal level proprietary sources, Telcordia™ LERG™ Routing Guide (LERG) and uses rigorous methodology, extensive research, ongoing customer feedback mechanism and monthly update process to ensure that the communications infrastructure databases are the most accurate, dependable, current databases of their kind.  The dataset is regularly maintained and updated on a quarterly basis.  Annual, semi-annual and quarterly data updates are available.

​Variables: LATA ID, LATA Name, Major Local Exchange Carrier / LEC, Area Codes
