About NANPA

We had a question about NANPA–The North American Numbering Plan Administration. So here is what this group does: As administrator of the 800-855 resource, NANPA is responsible for assigning 800-855 numbers and maintaining an accurate record of the entity responsible for each assignment. The 800-855 resource is to be used only for the purpose of accessing public services on the PSTN intended for the deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired. And, if a service provider goes out of business, or if the assignee no longer provides the services for which the 800-855 number was assigned, the number must be returned to NANPA.
