    Matt, can you talk a bit more about what a "Rate Center Info" is?

    Being a non-American I'm not sure I really understand what this is

    Hi Peter,

    RateCenter Info is a map database of rate centers throughout the United States. It enables users to accurately determine the rate centers and NPA/NXX combinations that a carrier serves and to create maps that show all of the rate centers for a particular parent company.

    NPA: Area Code Number (also known as NPA number)

    NXX:

    This term refers to the first three digits of a seven-digit local phone number. These first digits refer to the number of the telephone company central office. Also referred to as a Prefix.
