LATA
Last modified: Tuesday, December 11, 2001 

Local Access and Transport Area is a U.S. term that refers to a geographic region assigned to one or more telephone companies for providing communication services.

A connection between two telephone companies within the same region is referred to as intraLATA. A connection between two local exchange carriers in different regions is called interLATA, which is the same as long-distance service.

Provisions guiding the use of LATAs are outlined in the Telecommunications Act of 1996.
