Your Local Calling Area Your local calling area defines the numbers you can call without incurring a charge.
Your local calling area is a geographic area defined by two factors: your home exchange (also known as your prefix) and your LATA (Local Access Transport Area).
Your home exchange includes all of the phone numbers in your immediate community which share the same local calling area. Your exchange numbers are the three digits immediately following the area code — as in ### 722-####. The home exchange is always a part of your local calling area, though your local calling area may include additional exchanges and surrounding communities.
LATA (Local Access Transport Area)
LATAs define geographical boundaries of local telephone service networks. The LATA boundaries are drawn by the federal government and determine which phone companies can provide local and toll service for each area. Local calling area information The most accurate source of information about your local calling area is the Consumer Guide section of your local Verizon phone directory.
