Besides, the FCC and the phone companies frequently ask the public for comment concerning the North American Numbering Plan administration. They also act and change based on those comments. Unlike the NSI situation, the FCC has changed NANP administrators several times, and generally issues a 1 year contract with an option to renew for successive years. Its also clear the NANPA doesn't "own" the north american numbering plan or the databases used to administer it.
