http://nanpa.com/reports/reports_cocodes.html likely has quite a bit of overlap with LCG and it is mostly in a bulk format.

Many categories of information available in the LERG are not on LCG or any publicly available data source. 

However, the most common, banal query - number block switch homing -is easily serviced there, yes. A lot of users of the LERG are looking for quite a bit more than that, though, particularly tandem homing. 

The other problem that reduces the LCG is that you can't reasonably set up a bulk process against them. Yes, they've got an XML API, but just try using it to populate a nationwide code group. I doubt they would allow that even for pay, and it would take forever.

	Technically you may perfectly live without buying any subscriptions from Telcordia.
	Most LERG information you may always find by visiting the Local Calling Guide:
	When ready to buy - you may start with an annual (one time) issue.
