833 Auction Registration and Application Starts Today!

In September 2018, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) took action to modernize the assignment of Toll-Free Numbers (TFNs) by announcing the use of an auction to distribute highly sought after TFNs in the 833 area code. To ensure that numbers go to those that value them most, a comprehensive registration and application process has been developed for the 833 Toll Free Number Auction.

Beginning today at 12PM ET, organizations and individuals interested in participating in the auction can file their registration and application forms to have the opportunity to bid on over 17,000 highly sought after TFNs. The window to register and apply is tight – forms must be submitted BEFORE the October 18, 2019, 6PM ET deadline – so interested parties are encouraged to register early to be a part of ensuring that customers secure the highly sought after 833 TFNs that they value.

Want to learn more? To begin, please read and familiarize yourself with the FCC’s 833 Toll-Free Number Auction Procedures Public Notice. Your next step is to visit auction.somos.com for all auction related information. Once there, click on “Participate in the Auction” to begin the registration and application process.
