This is a long distance call which stays within your LATA boundaries and is usually handled by the same local telephone company that handles your local calls. These are also called local toll calls. Many states have several LATAs, so you could make&a call to a friend in the same state as you, and it could be either IntraLATA or InterLATA. If it's InterLATA it will be handled by your choice of long distance company. For example, an Indianapolis - Lafayette call.
