Monday, October 14, 2013

Tele-Tech Services has added data for Canadian telecom service providers to our Subscriber Line Charge Database.

This database of the monthly rates charged by service providers is used for billing, auditing, and by other service providers as competitive information.

While the data set has been popular among our clients for many years, data for business lines from 50 Canadian service providers was released this month.

New Country Code – South Sudan 211

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Tele-Tech has completed implementing into its databases the new country code for South Sudan. International dialing code 211 went into effect July 2012, a year after being assigned by the International Telecommunication Union.

The Republic of South Sudan gained independence in 2011, which makes the new country code even more meaningful for its citizens.

Tele-Tech Data Changes

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Tele-Tech researchers report more than 19,000 changes to the End User Common Line (EUCL) charge database in July.

Major changes usually occur in January and July, although some of the changes this month can be attributed to the Universal Service Fund/Intercarrier Compensation Transformation Order.

The following states had changes to Subscriber Line Charges (SLC) for business or residential rates:

  • Alabama: AT&T residential rates
  • California: Frontier residential rates
  • Idaho: Frontier and Qwest business rates
  • Illinois: AT&T business rates
  • Michigan: Frontier North residential rates
  • New Mexico: Qwest business and residential rates
  • Texas:  Verizon business rates
  • Utah: Qwest business and residential rates
  • Virginia: Verizon business and residential rates

Updates to the EUCL and SLC databases are scheduled to be shipped at the end of July.

Extended Area Service (EAS) files were shipped July 17. EAS changes include local files in Ohio owned by Telephone Service Company and New Knoxville Telephone Company. The rate centers Wapakoneta and Cridersville now have local calling to New Knoxville and 17 additional rate centers.  The New Knoxville rate center can now call Wapakoneta locally. These changes will affect the output of the Localizers for Ohio.

Qwest increased local operator service charges in Idaho. Those files were shipped earlier this month.

AT&T states (formerly known as Bell South) saw an increase in the non-recurring service charge for business installations in all but Louisiana, which is currently $85.00. The service charge increased to $75 in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
