Re: [Anveo] A local number is long distance to dial, why?

530-466 is NOT Anderson, CA.

LATAs are completely meaningless and you should not be looking at LATAs to determine if a number is local. It needs to be in the same rate center or in a rate center local to the one you're calling from for it to be local. For Olinda, CA specifically that is Anderson, Cottonwood, and Redding. FWIW we can get numbers in all three - pretty sure most other providers can get numbers in at least one of these too.

OP's original concern was not only that the number wasn't "local", but also that his friends with POTS were being told that it was a true long-distance call, which it was. Not just intra-LATA regional toll, but inter-LATA long distance.

LATA's [are] useful in that any POTS call between LATA's is by definition long-distance.

You are of course correct in that the best arrangement is a number either in the same rate center or an adjacent rate center that's still in the local calling area.
