Neustar Directory Listings Management

Stop Paying Competitors to Control Your Data


Demand for directory listings is greater than ever and has expanded beyond printed books as today’s consumers use the Internet, smartphones and mobile devices to search for information on businesses and services. While search practices have evolved, many communications service providers still rely on the traditional — and costly — model of using the incumbent carriers to fulfill directory listings.

  • You pay monthly recurring fees from $2 to $40 (national average of $5.50) per telephone number.
  • You deal with complex formatting requirements that create errors and omissions.
  • Your data is resold to aggregators and may even end up with your competitors.

These fees are for printed books, so CSPs miss opportunities to provide the online and electronic options consumers and businesses demand. It’s time to change.
