FCC Numbering SymposiumNovember 2004

telephone numbers are the means by which consumers access services via the pstn
Telephone Numbers are the Means By Which Consumers Access Services via the PSTN
  • Consumers have always used telephone numbers to access both telecommunications and information services via the Public Switched Telecommunications Network
    • Local and Long Distance Voice Services
    • Fax Services
    • Voicemail Services
    • Weather, Sports and Information Services
    • Dial-up Internet Access
  • Consumers should continue to be able to use telephone numbers to access all types of services, including IP-Enabled Services
  • The FCC should ensure that telephone numbers are available on a timely, non-discriminatory basis, to all service providers.

numbers are the fuel of competition
Numbers are the Fuel of Competition
  • The FCC has ruled that “[u]nder no circumstances should consumers be precluded from receiving telecommunications services of their choice from providers of their choice for want of numbering resources. For consumers to benefit from the competition envisioned by the Telecommunications Act of 1996, it is imperative that competitors in the telecommunications marketplace face as few barriers to entry as possible.” California PUC Petition for Delegation of Additional Authority Pertaining to Area Code Relief and NXX Code Conservation Measures, 14 FCC 17486 (1999).
  • The same reasoning applies to the IP-enabled services marketplace.

telephone numbers must be used as efficiently as possible
Telephone Numbers Must Be Used As Efficiently As Possible
  • The FCC’s optimization measures should continue to apply to all numbering resources regardless of the type of service consumers use the number to access.
  • The best way to optimize numbering utilization is to ensure that any single number can be used to access the maximum type of services possible (e.g., wireline, wireless, IP-enabled, telecommunications, information) across the greatest geographic area possible (e.g., overlays are preferable to area code splits).
    • Reduces the chances that numbering resources will be stranded due to changes in the marketplace
    • Ensures that numbering resources can be allocated where needed
  • The inherent mobility of IP-enabled services should not preclude consumers from using geographic telephone numbers to access them.
