Tele-Communication (Telecom) Terms Glossary and Dictionary
IntraLATA refers to a telephone call or circuit which does not cross a LATA boundary. IntraLATA communications require the use of an LEC, but not an IXC (intereXchange Carrier). IntraLATA telephone calls can still be long distance calls. In fact, because intraLATA long distance in the US is not subject to the same competitive market forces as interLATA long distance, intraLATA long distance calls normally cost much more than interLATA long distance.
