The Fiber Availability Inquiry provides a CLEC with the facility environment serving the end user. This transaction enables the user to check the Fiber to the Premise (FTTP) availability after receiving an exact-match Address Validation.

When to Use
The Fiber Availability Inquiry is used prior to submitting a Local Service Request (LSR) for service at a new location, prior to making changes to existing service and prior to moving service to a new location.

How to Complete
The Fiber Availability Inquiry transaction requires that the user has already received an exact-match Address Validation. The required field for submitting this inquiry is: Fiber Availability ID (FAID).
