Carrier Identification Codes (CICs) are four-digit codes (any digit from 0 through 9) used within the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN) to route calls.

Bandwidth is a RespOrg with multiple service partners which gives us the ability to not only route calls based on quality and cost, but also quickly reroute traffic in the unlikely event of a service impairment.
