*The map displays (shaded and outlined in blue) the study area boundaries submitted and certified by incumbent local exchange carriers and state commissions through
December 9, 2013. The map also displays (outlined in red) overlaps with a land area greater than
or equal to one percent of the total land area of a study area. These overlaps will be highlighted in red when selected from the drop-down menu under “Zoom to Overlap for,” and users can find information about these areas by clicking on them. As a result of confidentiality requests, certain boundaries for Verizon and AT&T are not displayed. The map does not display Verizon's entire study area in each state but shows areas where Verizon's boundaries create a highlighted overlap with a neighboring carrier. In addition, AT&T's study areas in the following states have not been published on the map: AR, CT,
IL,IN, KS, MI, MO, OH, OK, TX, and WI. For these states, AT&T has been provided a map of the areas where its study areas overlap with neighboring carriers and will be contacting these carriers to address these issues. In addition, carriers can contact AT&T directly by calling Vonda Long at 202-457-2043 or emailing her at vl4468 (at) att (dot) com.
