Kentucky local calling expansions

Several carriers in Kentucky are expanding their local calling areas effective 2016-06-01 in response to changes in federal Universal Service Fund subsidies.

North Dakota rate centre consolidation

Effective 2016-03-01, York ND will be consolidated under Leeds ND (North Dakota Telephone Company OCN 1447 serves both exchanges). Midstate Telephone (OCN 1638) recently transferred York to NDTC since that exchange is surrounded by NDTC exchanges and serves only 12 customers with a total of 20 access lines.
