  • Local Calls A local call is a call within your local calling area that generally does not generate a toll. Your local calling area is defined by your local calling service plan.

    The Local Call Summary, on your Verizon bill, may include fees for regional toll calls also. These calls are not within your local calling area but are within your LATA (Local Access Transport Area).

    LATAs are geographical boundaries set by the federal government and determine local calling areas and extended calling service. In comparison, InterLATA calls are made outside of your LATA and are generally considered long distance calls.

    Any call which generates a toll, whether a local toll call or a long distance call can be handled by a provider of your choice. Many companies now provide both IntraLATA (local and local toll service) as well as InterLATA (long distance service) plans.
