[VoiceOps] LCA file for Broadworks across provinces / states

Are both SHERBROOKE ‘s in the same LATA number? BroadWorks distinguishes
the same names based on LATA. E.g., there are tons of “Springfield”s and
“Albany”s in the US and Canada but in different LATAs.

If you’re using BroadWorks LCA, then you’ll also need to load an
NNACL-formatted file. (I think that’s usually excerpted from LERG6.)

Of course, BroadWorks doesn’t really care where you get the data. It’s
certainly possible to create inconsistencies.
