For each country you are based in, we will provide
the full in-country numbering plan: landline calls
(local, regional and national), mobile calls (with the
mobile carrier), premium calls (for rating or blocking),
non-geographic calls, toll free calls, partially
toll-free calls, directory assistance and special codes.
This will enable you to classify and rate your
in-country traffic exactly.
For international destinations, we will provide all
high-level country codes and all global mobile prefixes.
Global mobile prefixes include the carrier, for correct
rating. We will provide landline international prefixes
if needed by your rate plan. We will include all
international premium services so that these calls can
be rated or blocked.
Data can be localized
into any language.

given to the local call jurisdiction. Sometimes this is
done for the purposes of bill presentation or traffic
aggregation, but in many countries local calls still
receive special treatment in rating.
International DataBases will set up your local
calling area prefixes and update them on a regular
basis, all within the constraints of the RAMPS data
