Carrier Identification Code (CIC)
Carrier Identification Codes (CICs) are used to route and bill calls in the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN). CICs are four-digit codes in the format XXXX, where X is any digit from 0 through 9. Separate CIC pools are maintained for Feature Group B (line side) access and Feature Group D (trunk side) access.
How Bandwidth is Involved with CIC
Bandwidth uses CIC codes to route toll free calls to our customers.
What Are the Benefits of CIC
