IntraLATA carriers must submit a quarterly report listing payphone automatic number identifications (ANIs) to the interexchange carriers (IXCs). This will facilitate resolution of disputed ANIs in the per-call compensation context. The report allows interexchange carriers to determine which dial-around calls are made from payphones. Without provision of this report, resolution of disputed ANIs would be rendered very difficult. IXCs would not be able to discern which ANIs pertain to payphones and therefore would not be able to ascertain which dial-around calls were originated by payphones for compensation purposes. The data which must be maintained for at least 18 months after the close of a compensation period, and will facilitate verification of disputed ANIs.
