††††††††† On January 15, 2013, Southwestern Bell Telephone Company, d/b/a AT&T Missouri, filed an Application and Motion for Expedited Treatment requesting that the Missouri Public Service Commission review and reverse a decision of the North American Numbering Plan Administrator (NANPA), NeuStar, Inc., of AT&T Missouriís application to obtain one thousands-block from which two hundred (200) consecutive numbers can be drawn within (1) the 573 NPA, (2) the Farmington rate center, and (3) the XXXX range of 5100-5299.The additional numbers are needed in order to meet the needs of the St. Francois County Ambulance District, located in Farmington, Missouri.

††††††††† On January 25, 2013, the Staff of the Commission filed its Staff Recommendation.No other applications to intervene, requests for hearing, or recommendations have been filed.†††

††††††††† Staff explained that AT&T Missouri does not have the numbers requested to meet this customerís needs.Staff believes AT&T Missouri has demonstrated a verifiable need for one thousands-block within the 573 NPA, an XXXX range from 5100 through 5299, in the Farmington, Missouri rate center. Staff recommended the Commission grant AT&T Missouriís request.

††††††††† The Commission has the authority to overturn NANPAís decision to withhold numbering resources from a carrier pursuant to 47 C.F.R. ß52.15(g)(4), which states in part, ďThe state commission also may overturn the NANPAís decision to withhold numbering resources from the carrier based on its determination that the carrier has demonstrated a verifiable need for numbering resources and has exhausted all other available remedies.Ē

††††††††† Based on AT&T Missouriís application and the Staffís recommendation, the Commission finds that AT&T Missouri has demonstrated a verifiable need for numbering resources and has exhausted all other available remedies.The Commission will overturn NANPAís decision and approve AT&T Missouriís request for one block of one-thousand telephone numbers as listed above.
