Establish & Maintain Account for Local Services

Welcome to Verizon Wholesale Local Services. This section covers information you need to know about Verizon to begin doing business with Verizon and maintain your account information as your business changes and grows.

To establish a wholesale relationship with Verizon, you will have to understand state and federal regulatory requirements and the tariffs under which you can purchase services from Verizon. Next, you will need to negotiate an interconnection agreement with Verizon, make yourself familiar with and obtain the appropriate industry codes, and will need to create and maintain a Local Services Profile via the Customer Profile Self-Service Tool (CPSST). You will need to establish connectivity and establish billing arrangements before being able to submit transactions to Verizon. Local Services Profile data must be submitted prior to requesting connectivity. As your needs may change and business grows, returning to this site will help ensure you are able to maintain the accuracy of your account.

After finalizing your agreement with Verizon, you will need to begin implementation of your network plans. Depending on your network considerations, you may require access to Poles, Conduits, Rights of Way and Joint User Agreements, or want to apply for collocation arrangements with Verizon. Finally, we will require regular forecasting input from you.

Once your relationship is established with Verizon, other sections of the web site will help you conduct day-to-day operations with us.
