Will Hoarding of Toll Free Continue?

Will the possible release of the new 855 toll free phone numbers help curb the growing black market and illegal hoarding practices? The FCC began investigating hoarding of 800 numbers over a decade ago. These improper practices continues to grow along with the skyrocketing popularity of toll free services. Hoarding by individual subscribers is lillegal. A subscriber may not acquire more toll-free numbers than they intend to use. By FCC definition, “hoarding” also includes “brokering” toll-free numbers for a fee.
