Supplementary notes

Working Channels are reported in 4 kHz bandwidth (single-voice channel) equivalents.
* Southern New England Telephone Company merged with SBC Communications October 26, 1998. Their data are included in this table starting with 1999.
** Large increase in 2000 is due to the merger of Bell Atlantic and GTE.
*** The large decrease from 2001 to 2002 is due in part to a number of Verizon companies refiling in order to remove interexchange carrier, point-of-presence, and co-location circuit counts to comply with ARMIS definitions.
**** In 2008, the Commission granted forebearance relief from filing this data.
