netnumber Global Data Services North American Toll Free Routing
The Challenge: Routing
Toll-free numbers are a ubiquitous contact channel for many businesses in the United States and Canada, both large and small. Consumers can conveniently reach these businesses without having to pay for phone calls.
The calls are routed between the home operator of the calling consumer and the service provider of the called business, sometimes via several hops. Service providers and voice carriers involved in routing and transporting the calls need accurate data about each toll-free number in order to choose the most effective route.
