As we’ve been socializing for a few months now, the FCC’s beta test for its reassigned number database is a must enroll.
Well Friday the Commission just announced initial pricing for the use of the fully-operational database when it becomes available November 1. Here’s the rate structure:
As you can tell there are some discounts here for volume and subscription length.
As a reminder, here is how the database works:
- Callers will need to know “last good” dates for all numbers they wish to call–this the the date that the caller last reached the consumer on the number;
- Callers send the number and the last good date to the Administrator;
- The Administrator sends back a “Yes” or “No” indicator–yes meaning the number has been permanently deactivated since the last good date and no meaning it has not been.
- Callers must avoid calling “Yes” numbers and, if they do, they receive a safeharbor protecting them from wrong number calls to numbers that were marked “no.”
Always happy to chat this stuff through.
