PULP Attorney Named to North American National Telephone Numbering Council

PULP Senior Attorney Lou Manuta was recently appointed to the North American Numbering Council (“NANC”) as one of its two consumer advocate representatives. NANC is a 25 member Federal Advisory Committee that advises the Federal Communications Commission on telephone numbering issues and makes recommendations that foster efficient and impartial number administration. To date, the NANC has provided recommendations to the Commission on a myriad of issues, including wireline/wireless integration for local number portability, abbreviated dialing arrangements, the neutrality of toll-free database administration, and the feasibility of local number portability for 500/900 numbers. The NANC is currently working on issues such as monitoring wireless and intermodal LNP implementation and the impact of VoIP and Electronic Numbering on the North American Numbering Plan.
