Seems to be that TekStar is a carrier in that NPA/NXX and they managed
to figure out a way to charge outrageous carrier access charges to
support among other things a free conference calling service (most
likely it's the other way around with what is supporting what).
Because of this Level3 and Bandwidth are both not reliably completing
calls there. In the case of Bandwidth they're just refusing the calls
all together, while Level 3 (at least on the Vector platform) will let
you complete a call there every once in a while.
>From a ticket with Level 3 earlier in the week:
Notes : We have seen unprecedented growth of traffic to these very
rural areas. There is currently no ETA for a fix. Level3 has a limited
amount of capacity in these particular areas and at this time we will
not be augmenting. This increase in traffic is the result of
questionable activities on the part of several independent telecom
providers that result in extremely high access fees for carriers such
as Level3 and we will continue to protect ourselves and our customers
from this type of activities and the cost that goes along with it.
